Seton Hall Pirates have gone out and offered quite a few players over the last 24 hours or so. Five, to be precise, ranging between 2018, 2019 and 2020 prospects. Let’s get you folks caught up on who the Pirates are now pursuing.
Bishop is a 2019 guard from Imhotep Institute in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The news of Bishop’s offer came from his AAU assistant coach from K-Low Elite in Philadelphia:
Bishop is unranked by 247Sports, but the 6-foot-4, 175-pound shooting guard is still gathering offers from high-major schools regardless. Penn State, and Rutgers Scarlet Knights are among those who’ve offered him along with St. Joe’s and VCU, who also offered him on Monday like the Pirates did.
Hutchins-Everett is a native of Wayne, New Jersey and currently attends Immaculate Conception. His offer from The Hall was reported by Pat Lawless.

We won’t hear about him for a little while as he’s a class of 2020 center. That said, the rising sophomore is already listed at 6-foot-9, 205 lbs. and will likely continue to ascend up the ladder with size like that at this point in his high school career. To this point, the NJ Playaz big man has only two other offers: Rutgers and Miami (FL).
Bates, who has been gaining all sorts of traction lately, received an offer from the Pirates on Tuesday. Julius Kim was first to report that the Team Felton hooper picked up the offer, and Bates then tweeted out the news a few minutes later.

The 2018 forward from Fayetteville is listed as a three-star on 247Sports and has been racking up offer after offer lately. Virginia, Louisville and Xavier are just three of the schools who’ve caught notice of him lately, as well as NC State and Georgetown.
2018 guard Jared Rhoden picked up an offer from Seton Hall back on Sunday, per Pat Lawless.

The Bronx shooting guard is listed as a 3-star on 247Sports, although his Composite Rating is unavailable to this point. He’s listed sixth on 247Sports’ database for New York recruits, a list that Archbishop Molloy’s five-star center Moses Brown tops. Rhoden has a slew of offers, including ones from Temple, VCU, Dayton, Penn State, Rhode Island and Monmouth among others.
Team Loaded (NC) announced that one of their own received the offer from the Pirates on Monday afternoon.

247Sports has Hinton listed as a three-star shooting guard, who stands at 6-foot-4, 180 lbs. He’s ranked within the Top 15 among 2018 North Carolina recruits, sstanding 13th in a group littered with talent to this point. A slew of high-major schools have offered him in July, including Minnesota, Illinois, Oklahoma State, Clemson, Maryland, Auburn, Arkansas, Pitt, VaTech, and Indiana among others.
So, safe to say the Pirates have been active recently and doing their due diligence across the board. The next few weeks of the live period should be interesting to see if SHU offers anyone else or, perhaps, goes so far as to land any commits. But you can’t say that Willard & Co. aren’t busy right now. That much is certain.
