Murphy recruited to be in program more than one year.

Recall he was originally expected to have to sit last year as a redshirt.

Further, I don't think anyone ever objected to recruiting a talented player who showed well enough to decide, I've progressed as far as I can here, I'm going to move on after one great season. I think the general objection to the Duke and Kentucky style is, their entire approach to recruiting and retention in general. The expectation at those schools is that each player will be gone after one year. Some will jump to the NBA, others will be pushed out to make room for the next year's crop of one and dones. They do little to improve the game of those players, and even less to keep them academically eligible for a second season. They aren't doing anything to develop those kids on or off the court. The only thing they are really offering those kids is exposure. Its literally a one-year rental(complete with $ changing hands) of a kid that isn't allowed to go straight to the NBA.
