Evaluating Joe Coleman to St. Mary's

Since the NCAA made their insane ruling regarding the St. Mary's infractions, it's been tough to establish how that will affect their recruiting. That will probably become more evident in the 2014 class, but for now, St. Mary's is still wrapping up 2013. The big blow came from an unexpected source.
