After a positive visit to Seton Hall, all indicators pointed to Paterson (N.J.) Caltholic point guard Jordan Theodore staying home to play college basketball. Theodore, 6-foot, 170-pounds, made it official Wednesday afternoon.
"I really like the fact that my mother, grandmother and other family members and friends can watch me play my games," said Theodore about his commitment to Seton Hall. "I also feel very comfortable with Bobby Gonzalez."
Theodore hopes to bring his winning ways to a program that he feels is on the rise. In Colorado Springs, Colo., Theodore helped lead his squad to a Gold Medal, and he has played an integral part of the enormous success of the New York Gauchos on the travel circuit.
"Seton Hall is definitely on the rise," he said. "They are bringing in a lot of better players like Michael Glover and Mike Davis. By the time I get there, I think we are going to be really good."
Already with a standout point guard Eugene Harvey on the roster, Theodore has no concerns about how he will fit into the Pirates' backcourt.
"Coach Gonzalez said we will play together in the backcourt," he said. "We will share the point guard position. Sometimes he'll have the ball and sometimes I'll have it. It's no big deal to me because I'm used to doing that with the Gauchos."
Theodore, who is the No. 92 ranked prospect in the Rivals150, also considered Memphis, Maryland, Gonzaga and Marquette.
