Excluding Baylor I believe Ms. Williams Top 5 are:
for Ms. Williams round out that top 5.
Georgia, however, is a finalist for Jordan Nixon, along with UVA, UCLA, Ohio State and us.
I knew I saw UGA somewhere. Thank you for the correction.
One that is not used as often as it once was but is absolutely spot-on in this era of internet-based research.
verb (used with object)
to choose; select; pick.
to gather the choice things or parts from.
to collect; gather; pluck.
Thanks 63'er for plugging it back into my (active) vocabulary.

Looking at September, it looks like
- Christyn Williams will visit Tennessee, then us and UConn sometime after that.
- Jordan Nixon comes to South Bend, then UVA and Georgia?
Williams falls in the Walker/Westbrook category of player so I'm not getting too high or too low about her.
On the other hand, I'm hoping Nixon/ND fall for each other big time in early September. MM seems set on another true point guard and it would be superb to get one of Nixon's ilk if it works out.
Off to culling some more....
McGraw's Bench culls.
Just like coach's recruiting practices, I'd like to think that we are choosy in what reaches our open court or forum.
We glean, sift, optate, or (my favorite) winnow. (If Dillon can use the dictionary, I can summon the thesaurus.)
(Full disclosure: I've never, to my knowledge, used "winnow" in speech or writing, but I'll try in the coming season.)
Remember, the "Great American Blog Post" is still waiting to be written. I'm betting on the posters here. (I still can't get "she turns to Coach McGraw and mouths ‘Boley, Schmoley'" out of my mind.)
(Yes, you can tell this is slow time in women's hoops!)
