While our very own SB Nation top-100 college basketball players list only included freshman Isaiah Whitehead as an honorable mention, he has been included in ESPN's equivalent list. At No. 99, Whitehead just made it on their list with fellow Big East guys Kellen Dunham (No. 93), Roosevelt Jones (No. 86), and Ryan Arcidiacono (No. 84) just ahead of him.

Ten freshmen who will make the biggest impact next season - Yahoo Sports

yahoo.com

Isaiah Whitehead is included in a Yahoo! Sports list of the top 10 freshmen who will make the biggest impact during the 2014-15 college basketball season. "The crown jewel of Seton Hall's most ballyhooed recruiting class in at least a decade, Whitehead arrives with sky-high expectations. The 6-foot-4 Brooklyn native is expected to spearhead a resurgence for the Pirates after selecting them over the likes of Syracuse, Louisville, St. John's, Arizona and Indiana. Whitehead will inherit the starting shooting guard position from Fuquan Edwin and should pile up the points thanks to his ability to score off the dribble or via pull-up jumpers. He isn't the most consistent player and he sometimes takes ill-advised shots, but the Pirates will have to live with that because they need his offense after losing three of last year's four top scorers." Also from the Big East, Xavier small forward Trevon Bluiett is included as another freshman that will make an instant impact.
