Isaiah Whitehead Is A Top Target For Louisville

whiteheadIsaiah Whitehead, a 6-foot-4 scoring guard from Brooklyn, N.Y., picked up a scholarship offer from Rick Pitino in October. Eight months later, the four-star prospect has become one of Louisville’s top targets in the 2014 class.

Whitehead is currently participating in the NBA Players Association Top 100 camp in Charlottesville, VA. The New York native has gotten quite a bite of attention over the past two days with some impressive performances at the camp.

In an interview with Steve Jones of the Courier-Journal, Whitehead says Louisville is currently recruiting him the hardest. He also says he’s been in contact with fellow New Yorker Russ Smith. Whitehead is considered to be one of the top scorers in the 2014 class.

Whitehead has scholarship offers from Arizona, Florida, Georgetown, Iowa State, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, Louisville, Minnesota, Syracuse, St. John’s, Texas and Xavier. Louisville and Syracuse are thought to be the favorites.

  1. My guess is UofL will have about six scholarships open next year. I think trez and chane will go pro. Russ, SVT and Luke will graduate, and Zach will leave one open after he transfers. 2 is already gone with Aaron and Snider, and another will likely be taken by Jaquan lyle. Pitino is after trey lyles, Myles turner, Kelly Oubre, Brandone Francis, Dante Exum and devin Robinson. The 2014 class should turn out to be a good one for the cards. I’m hoping for lyles & Oubre..

  2. Okay we offer these elite but seem too never getem let’s get it going Rick, come on dude!
