The actual quote she gave in the orginal article was "It's hard to rebuild a team if you lose the top 20, 30 American players to the traditional powerhouse programmes each year."

The part that is ascribed to her "... she picks a few select American players each year and offers them scholarships first. If they don't take them she goes international." was NOT quote and could be entirely taken out of context of her conversation or not even what she meant. Obviously she is just not offering blue chip players in America.
