Big Day For Me & My Family Gonna See If I'm Selected For The All American Game Today 🙌🙏🏀🍟— Isaiah Whitehead (@Isaiah_W15) January 29, 2014
Whitehead is ranked 14th by Rivals, 20th by 247Sports.com, and is rated the best shooting guard in the 2014 class by Scout. Isaiah would be the first McDonald's All-American to go to Seton Hall since Andre Barrett and the late Eddie Griffin did so in 2000. Prior to that duo, current associate head coach Shaheen Holloway was named MVP in the 1996 all-star game. In 1990, Luther Wright became the first McDonald's All-American to sign with Seton Hall.
Andre Barrett (Rice HS, N.Y.) would be joined by Isaiah Whitehead as the second All-American from New York City to commit their future to Seton Hall. The City's last McDonald's All-American was Bishop Loughlin's JayVaughn Pinkston in 2010. Seton Hall commit Khadeen Carrington broke Pinkston's scoring record at Loughlin in December.
