NCB On The Trail: Ismael Sanogo

Seton Hall welcomes four-man class

November, 16, 2013
Seton Hall basketball coach Kevin Willard announced the signing of four student-athletes -- including two ESPN 100 prospects -- to letters of intent on Friday.

Leading the way for the Pirates are ESPN 100 shooting guard Isaiah Whitehead (Brooklyn, N.Y./Lincoln) and ESPN 100 power forward Angel Delgado (Bronx, N.Y./Huntington Prep), along with three-star shooting guard Khadeen Carrington (Brooklyn, N.Y./Bishop Loughlin) and three-star small forward Ismael Sanogo (Newark, N.J./East Side).

"We are excited to officially welcome Isaiah, Angel, Khadeen and Ismael to the Seton Hall basketball family," Willard said. "The future for Pirate basketball looks bright with this talented group headed to South Orange next season. This class has an opportunity to elevate Seton Hall basketball to new heights and leave their mark on this program."

Khadeem Carrington (Brooklyn, N.Y./Bishop Loughlin) made a verbal commitment to Seton Hall on Thursday night, one week after taking an unofficial visit to the school.

Carrington becomes the second product of the New York Lightning to commit to the Pirates so far this year, joining ESPN 100 PF Angel Delgado (Dominican Republic/Huntington Prep).

ESPN 100 power forward Angel Delgado (Troy, N.Y./Huntington Prep) committed to Seton Hall on Friday night over a combination of offers and interest from Florida State, Fordham, Kentucky, Virginia and others.

This is a major pickup for Seton Hall head coach Kevin Willard because it not only lands him the nation’s No. 63 overall player in the Class of 2014 but also because Delgado is one of the best rebounding power forwards in the country regardless of class.

Why did Delgado pick Seton Hall and what will he bring to the Pirates? Let's break it down.
