Recruiting tidbits from the area

Minnesota State took in a couple of transfers Friday, one each for the men's and women's basketball teams.
The men added A.J. Wilson, a 6-foot-6 transfer from Murray State. Wilson played his high-school ball at St. Bernard's and Concordia Academy in the Twin Cities, then spent two seasons at Northeastern (Colo.) Junior College, where he put up pretty good numbers.
Last season, Wilson played sparingly at Murray State, though he didn't get in during either of the Racers' two NCAA tournament games. He'll have only one season at Minnesota State, where coach Matt Margenthaler expects Wilson to add rebounding and post offense.
Women's coach Pam Gohl is bringing in point guard Kathleen Reynolds, who played last season at Northern State. Reynolds will have to sit out next season because of transfer rules.
Reynolds was a backup at Northern State, playing in only 16 games and averaging 3.1 points last season.
Mankato West senior Preston Brunz announced that he will go to Kirkwood Community College at Cedar Rapids, Iowa. It's the same school that his older brother Bryce attended from 2007-09; Bryce eventually earned a scholarship to Central Missouri, a top-flight Division II program.
Preston said that his familiarity with the program was a big factor in his decision, and he hopes to copy hos brother's success.
