I think it's a little disingenuous to make the distinction between Murphy


and any other one-and-done. There is no moral issue with not staying in college for a pre-determined amount of time. The vast majority of the recruits who come to UVA would do just as any of the one-and-done level talented players would do, if they have the same opportunity.

The only difference is talent or physical gifts, which is imo very silly to hold against a player. Romanticizing the college experience is fine and understandable for all you alums, but to me if they come to UVA to play basketball, and while they're here knowingly take on all UVA has to offer, then I can't help but embrace them and be a fan.

The staff hasn't had an issue recruiting select sure fire one and done players in the past and I suspect they'll selectively continue to do so if the recruit fits what they're looking for.
