Seton Hall guard Isaiah Whitehead will enter the NBA draft, head coach Kevin Willard told SNY’s Adam Zagoria.
Whitehead led the Pirates with an average of 18.2 points, 5.1 assists and 32.3 minutes per game over 34 contests this season.
New NCAA rules allow college players to participate in the NBA combine while maintaining their college eligibility. Players forfeit college eligibility if they secure representation.
Whitehead later announced that he will not hire an agent.
The Pirates were knocked out of the NCAA tournament with a 68–52 upset loss to Gonzaga. Whitehead scored 10 points with eight assists and four rebounds in the defeat.
