• ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay wrote on Twitter that he believes Gophers safety Brock Vereen will make a great value pick in either the late second or early third round of next week’s NFL draft. “Vereen has [an] intriguing skill set,” McShay wrote.

• The Gophers men’s basketball team is quickly building one of its most competitive nonconference schedules in some time. They will face Louisville in Puerto Rico, and now they know they will visit Wake Forest and new coach Danny Manning in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge on Dec. 2.

• DeLaSalle standout point guard Jarvis Johnson received a scholarship offer from Michigan State this week. He also has offers from the Gophers, Wisconsin, Iowa State and UCLA, among other schools. Coach Tom Izzo — who on Wednesday told ESPN he was staying with the Spartans despite interest from NBA teams, including the Wolves — has a connection with DeLaSalle, having recruited Alan Anderson from the school in 2000. … Speaking of Anderson, he had his best game of the playoffs with the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday, scoring 13 points on 4-for-7 shooting including 3-for-4 from three-point range. Anderson also had three assists and two rebounds.

• Former Gophers pitcher Seth Rosin spent spring training with the Los Angeles Dodgers as a Rule 5 draft pick and is in their media guide, but he has been all over the place this year. The Texas Rangers selected him off waivers March 26 and he made three relief appearances for them, posting a 6.75 ERA. He was then returned to the Philadelphia Phillies on April 11, the team the Dodgers selected him from, and now is in their minor league system at Class AAA Lehigh Valley with a 9.00 ERA in five games.

• Red Wing High School product Ryan Boldt is hitting .307 with 22 RBI for the Nebraska baseball team. Boldt was drafted in the 22nd round by the Boston Red Sox in 2013 but elected to play for the Cornhuskers. … Logan Shore, a righthander from Coon Rapids who was drafted by the Twins in the 29th round last year, chose to play college ball at Florida and is 5-2 with a 1.76 ERA as part of the rotation. In 66⅓ innings, he has walked 13 and struck out 41. In his most recent start, he gave up one run and five hits in 7⅓ innings in a 7-1 victory over Missouri last Friday. The Gators, who are ranked No. 12, are 30-15.
