Isaiah Whitehead chooses Seton Hall

Five-star guard Isaiah Whitehead of Abraham Lincoln High in Brooklyn chose Seton Hall today over Indiana and three other finalists.

"I would like to announce that I will be taking my talents to Seton Hall University," said Whitehead in a packed room this afternoon at Lincoln High, located in the Coney Island area.

The press conference was streamed live over the MSG Varsity web site.

The No. 14 overall player in the Rivals150 for the senior class chose the Pirates over Minnesota, St. John's, Indiana and Pittsburgh. Earlier this week Peegs.com reported that Whitehead was likely to stay near home and choose between Seton Hall and Big East rival St. John's.

During his press conference, Whitehead confirmed that distance played a big factor in the end.

"I couldn't leave my mom, so I had to say close," said Whitehead.

Earlier today the New York Post reported that Lincoln High head coach Dwayne "Tiny" Morton was expected to leave the Brooklyn school to join Ralph Willard's staff at Seton Hall.

"I picked Seton Hall to help bring the program back to where it used to be," said Whitehead. "I want to set my own path in college like I was able to separate myself in high school."
