Isaiah Whitehead to announce his commitment on Thursday

Andy Lyons

Isaiah Whitehead has set his decision date for 2:30 this Thursday at Lincoln High School in New York. He will decide between St. John's, Seton Hall, Pittsburgh, Minnesota, and Indiana.

Whitehead, a consensus Top 25 guard out of New York City in the Class of 2014, was thought to be a lock to go to one of Syracuse, Indiana, Minnesota, or Louisville at one point in time. St. John's also used to be strong with him. Recently, however, Seton Hall has dove head first into the Whitehead sweepstakes, quickly followed by St. John's, who will have Isaiah's final visit tomorrow. He will then announce his decision on Thursday.

Seton Hall still has one open scholarship for the 2014 recruiting class after Quadri Moore (Linden HS, N.J.) committed to Cincinnati over the Pirates earlier today. This comes as a shock to many Pirate fans who had been hearing that there was a very good chance Quadri would commit to Seton Hall. While he plays a different position, a Whitehead commitment would more than soften the blow of losing out on Moore.

Seton Hall was also at Christ The King (N.Y.) earlier today to see 2016 guard Rawle Alkins and 2014 forward Adonis Delarosa, the latter of which has been offered and might be a backup plan to Moore. Delarosa is ranked 247th out of 247 by 247Sports.com and is yet another New York City target.

Since Isaiah Whitehead was supposed to visit Minnesota in the near future and a few of their recruiting writers have guessed that he will go to Seton Hall, I would think they aren't likely to land Whitehead. I've also heard that Pittsburgh doesn't have much of a shot. Whitehead has recently visited both Indiana and Seton Hall, and will visit St. John's tomorrow. My opinion is that Whitehead will choose between those three programs, with St. John's being the popular pick. However, Seton Hall has as good of a chance as anyone.
