Seton Hall star point guard Isaiah Whitehead has been invited to the NBA Draft Combine.
Blessed To Be Invited To The NBA Combine Was Always A Goal Of Mines In My Basketball Career ????

A little over 60 prospects were invited to the combine a year ago, so Whitehead’s inclusion this year confirms his status of being in the pool of draft-hopefuls that project to have their names called on June 23rd or at least be seriously considered.
The invite has no impact on his ability to return to Seton Hall, though an encore season in South Orange would have became a lot more likely if he was left out.
Following the combine, which takes place from May 11-15 in Chicago, Isaiah has ten days to to remove his name from the draft or else he is gone. Still without an agent, those ten days will very likely contain the news that all Seton Hall fans are waiting on the edge of their seats to hear, one way or the other.
According to NCAA rules, Whitehead is still allowed to work out with Seton Hall’s coaches until he withdraws his name or decides to ink an agent and go (H)all in.
Isaiah has been back and forth from Las Vegas over the past few weeks preparing for the combine.
