In need of a point guard for next season, Seton Hall has found their guy in Patrick School (N.J.) floor general Jordan Walker.
The local top-150 talent announced his decision today at a planned press conference.

Seton Hall’s staff has kept tabs on the shifty 5-10 play-maker for months now and they surely know he lives for getting in the lane and looks to be a perfect fit for the Pirates, especially long-term.
Walker had collected offers from the likes of Kansas State, VCU, Georgia, Oklahoma State, and LSU since last fall with Cal and Pitt offering just a week ago; he also strongly considered prep ball as he was able to classify as both a 2017 and 2018 recruit.
The decision officially came down to Cal and Seton Hall, but Walker hadn’t even visited the Golden Bears since receiving an offer from newly-appointed head coach Wyking Jones.
Depending on his ability to adapt to the college game over the summer leading up to next season, it sounds like Seton Hall will supplement Walker with point guard play from Khadeen Carrington after most viable graduate transfer options dried up over the last month.
Seton Hall’s incoming recruiting class is now five-deep, contains several ranked prospects, and looks like this with one scholarship remaining due to Rashed Anthony‘s decision to graduate and transfer, announced earlier today.
