I think the PG recruiting (apparent) strategy change could reflect ...


... a number of things, or some combo of these, and it's hard to know from the outside which it is:

1) Eval of PG options in the Nunez class (the "we cooled on Nunez" theory, because of Nunez, rather than other factors)
2) Change in recruiting strategy/tactics as elucidated a bit in the Jeff White article (to oversimplify: Easier to keep fewer people happy)
3) An assessment of Reece, both how long he would stay and how good he might be
4) Perhaps a view that frosh PGs who will excel in the ACC don't need or want a one-year wait and learn on the bench for most of a year

Tying it to a potential Kihei 5th year makes less sense to me.

Also, a placeholder on your dribble drive point (re: Murphy and what last team was dying for). I have some thoughts but it will probably take me some time to figure out what they are. ;-)
