Care to wager who the two walks-ons are ?

yes, it's hard. This is the pack 12 we are talking about. If you want to run with the big dogs, you need to learn how to pee in the tall grass. But its her job. That's what I meant when I said lazy. If she is not capable of recruiting any American players worthy of her program, than I say she is not doing her job.

Obviously she is just not offering blue chip players in America.
Given her hit rate with these few select offers, she can't be diving too far down the list of 5 stars. As Mr. Bill said, maybe she will go to 50. But she does not have record of recruiting them either.
