I agree with Ricebale on this. She used a perfect example of kubi-nage from the old-time Ju-jutsu canon. Her arm was around her opponent's neck, not under the armpit. She had her leg extended to block her opponent's leg, as in kubi-nage. However, in original kubi-nage practice, tori usually planted the blocking leg somewhat similarly to tai-otoshi.
Kubi-nage is a very old Ju-jutsu throw. It is not legal in modern Judo. Instead, we have a modification of it called koshi-guruma in which the hips are placed deep inside uke's abdominal area and the arm, instead of holding uke's neck, is place around uke's back close to the opposite shoulder. When that arm is wrapped around uke's neck, it is clearly kubi-nage, a "neck-grip throw," with emphasis on the neck-grip.
For a makikomi, there usually needs to be a distinctive wraparound, a winding motion. This did not seem to me to have as much of that motion as we would expect even though the completed technique ended up with both contestants on the mat.
