Most of the AAU activity right now is identifying who in the soon to be Jr. Class is worth developing relationships with. AG can focus on a late bloomer who has high upside for 2018 and have his assistants scouring the next grade for targets for 2019.
If this was football recruiting I would definitely agree, but basketball recruiting tends to start much later. Most players really don't start getting recruited a lot until the summer before their senior year. Obviously the elite players and some players that teams identify as their top targets get started a little sooner. The main signing period for MBB is the spring, so that allows the process to start a little later.

Also, while AG has been in the NBA the last 2 seasons, all of his assistants were at the college level and for the most part, recruiting around the same level of players UD would typically go after. Kane and Greer would have been recruiting guys typically at the low end of who UD recruits and Solomon would have been recruiting players at the higher end of who UD would target.

Finally, AG has not been out of the game that long. While the players have changed, many of the coaches and players involved in recruiting are still at the places they were when AG was recruiting last. He should have no problem reaching out to former contacts to get scoops on this coming up class. Just look at the 2 new recruits he signed. UD was not in on either, and obviously he was not recruiting them before, but he was able to land those players in just a few weeks of being on the job.
