I don't think it would matter who the coach is. Jones' and Hurt were going to Duke. Vaughn was heading elsewhere. Trent was going blue blood. Maybe we land Reid Travis. Also, maybe we don't get Coffey, Oturu, or Gabe who have all been solid players.Pitino has missed out on the majority of the top ranked national instate recruits. Pointing that out isn’t misunderstanding that many are going to leave. It’s not a fireable offense but it’s a fair criticism of Pitino.
Pitino has missed on a lot of the in state guys but I bet anyone would have. Of all of the aspects of leading a D1 program Pitino's recruiting is closer to the bottom of concerns than top for me.
