Didn't realize there was a thread for this. Thanks for your time, Brahmin.
There is tremendous talent in the US right now. I haven't been paying too much attention to the Pac12, or even the Big 10, but Lauren Carlini, Justine Wong-Orantes, Kelsie Payne, Cassie Wait, Micaya White, Ebony Nwanebu, Yaazzie Bedart-Ghani, Morgan Johnson, Amber Rolfzen, and Madison Rigden could all walk onto the US national team tomorrow and compete for starting positions. I heard Kelsie Payne may return to being a middle after college, but she and Ebony could answer the US national team's opposite deficit-- granted they're decent in the back row. I've seen Ebony play back row a few times, and she's a great, diehard defender, even though she's so tall.
