Isaiah Whitehead commits to Seton Hall
Added by Anne Chavez on September 20, 2013.
Isaiah Whitehead, senior at Brooklyn’s Lincoln High School made a decision everyone from Seton Hall was waiting to hear. Competing for the commitment of this recruit was St. John’s, Pittsburgh, Minnesota and Indiana. Early on, rumors seemed to favor St. John’s, but adding to the suspense, Whitehead posted this on his Twitter page hours before the announcement was to be made:
On Thursday afternoon, Isaiah Whitehead, #35 2014 prospect on ESPN’s Top 100, committed to play for Seton Hall University next year. As a current senior at Seton Hall, it upsets me that I, as well as many other seniors, will not be able to see a lineup that involves Jaren Sina, Khadeen Carrington, Sterling Gibbs, Angel Delgado and newly committed Whitehead. I could just get tickets for next year but it just won’t feel the same being an alumnus.
Kevin Willard has come a long way and has a loaded 2014 recruiting class. His commitment to make Seton Hall men’s basketball better is so far successful. And with Isaiah’s commitment, Willard is putting Seton Hall on the map and is certainly making the new BIG EAST a conference to look out for next year.
Last season was a disappointing one as a Seton Hall student and fan, watching a team plagued with injuries and player departures. I believe with this 2014 recruiting class, things can change for the better.
Welcome to the Pirate family, Isaiah.
