Do I need to say anymore than this?
Whoever the coach is may get a small advantage in building a relationship with a recruit or two. But they're giving up their time, which they could be using to actually recruit
, to try to better USA basketball. It's a non-issue because no coach in their right mind would take the position in hopes that it would benefit them from a recruiting standpoint. The only reason it's an issue here is because that one player happens to be UT's top target.
