Steve nailed it with the scholarship losses being a massive "what if".
I also think that, while Boeheim remains the coach, we're going to see SU continue to target a small number of high school players in the #25-100 ranking range and work on recruiting them. He likes a smaller number of scholarship players, anyway (less players to divvy up playing time).
Adding in the transfer portal and the new rule removing the requirement of sitting out a season, I suspect they'll focus less on high school recruiting in the future, anyway. They can easily carve out a reputation as a strong destination for transfers, re-targeting kids like Swider, a kid they recruited in high school who didn't commit the first time.
I suspect they'll rarely bring in three kids in a high school class again because they won't want to.
I also think that article does some heavy lifting to rehab Hopkins' head coaching image by reiterating a lot of things about him that are repeated as why he was successful here - players' coach, recruiter, focuses on building up players instead of negative feedback.
