While in New York, Rick Pitino payed Junior Isaiah Whitehead a visit and decided to extend a scholarship offer to the 6’4 guard. Whitehead currently holds offers from Arizona, Syracuse, UCLA, and now Louisville. Teams like UConn, Florida, and Kentucky are also showing interest. It also should be noted that Whitehead attends Lincoln HS, which is Sebastian Telfair’s former high school.
ESPN’s scouting report on Whitehead reads:
Excellent vision and touch on passes when he draws a second defender with his slashing and penetration. He is a big guard with a strong frame who can get to the rim east to west as well as he does north to south.
