Yes, you are reading the headline right: Jordan Walker’s story at Seton Hall may not be done yet. It’s as equal a plot twist as the one you read yesterday stating he is done as a Pirate.
A few hours after discussing a short list of not-so-endearing reasons regarding why Jordan Walker is done at Seton Hall with people who would know, social media started to chatter that the shocking decision — reported by several outlets — was not yet a done deal.
Then I received this tweet. Apparently the final decision will be made today. Gotta love college sports drama, right?
They left the door open for him to stay if he'll accept his role without further drama. We'll see.
