Seton Hall star Isaiah Whitehead will remain in the NBA draft, his agent confirmed to ESPN’s Jeff Goodman.

Whitehead had been deciding between declaring for the draft or returning to Seton Hall for his junior season. Whitehead averaged 18.2 points and 3.6 rebounds per game for the Pirates last year.

Whitehead was first-team All-Big East as a sophomore. He is expected to be drafted this summer, potentially in the first round.
