I would NOT characterize the Europe trip as primarily a recruiting mission, rather a chance to get your team some extra on-court experience as well as overseas (cultural/educational/fun) experience. If you make any recruiting connections while over there, all the better.
The NCAA allows these types of trips every 4 or 5 years, right? So, take advantage to get your team better prepared for the upcoming season - that's the big bonus to the trip! Not recruiting.
