Coming off the heels of their first NCAA tournament appearance since 2006, Seton Hall will look a bit different next season. Ace NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that would-be junior Isaiah Whitehead will be remaining in the NBA Draft.

Whitehead, who led the Pirates with 18.2 points per game last season, will forgo his final two seasons of eligibility to head to the NBA. DraftExpress' most recent mock draft has Whitehead going 58th to the Celtics, though that could certainly improve in the next month.

For Seton Hall, they now are at 13 scholarships next season. They have stayed active this offseason, most recently adding 2016 guard Eron Gordon.

With Angel Delgado, Khadeen Carrington, Desi Rodriguez, and Ismael Sanogo returning next season, Seton Hall is in better shape than certain other Big East schools who had players depart.
