2017 forward Isaiah Whaley to visit Seton Hall

Looking to bolster their front line next year, Seton Hall will receive a visit from 2017 post forward Isaiah Whaley soon.

A 6-9 forward who most recently played at Mt. Zion Prep (Md.), Whaley was originally a 2016 prospect before re-classifying and playing a year of prep ball away from North Carolina.

Unranked by most sites but graded a three-star prospect by Scout, Whaley first emerged on Seton Hall’s radar as far back as December before he unofficially visited campus and was then offered during the first week of January; Memphis, Georgia, and Providence had all offered at one point, but it’s likely those offers no longer stand.

It sounds like Isaiah has attempted to convert from a face-up four to a more conventional post forward over the last year.

Besides Saint Louis, it’s unclear which schools have been recruiting him over the past few months.

Whaley joins Arizona State de-commit Kenny Wooten as high school prospects contacted recently that can join freshly-signed Newark East Side big man Darnell Brodie as part of Seton Hall’s 2017 class of big men.
