The player was not top 50, so there was momentary disappointment....... but a feeling of relief not to have to read tea leaves, and lasting admiration for the candor of Jill Hultquist.

[I was going to say something else right here, but that would have just been repetition]
So if that is the case she is actually not offering you unless you are blue chip (top 25) or 5 star. 5 star looks like it goes down to around 60-70. I am sure she would take someone in the 60-70 range. So if you are 4 star or lower you have to walk on. Is that unreasonable for a PAC 12 school?
