SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. (AP) - Shooting guard Eron Gordon has signed a letter of intent to play basketball at Seton Hall.

Pirates coach Kevin Willard announced the signing on Wednesday, about a week after guard Isaiah Whitehead said he was leaving the program to enter the NBA draft.

Gordon, who is from Indianapolis, averaged 24.5 points as a junior and 19.0 points as a senior at Cathedral High School. He was a finalist for Indiana’s Mr. Basketball award this past season.

Gordon’s brother, Eric Gordon Jr., was the seventh overall pick in the 2008 NBA draft.

Seton Hall posted a 25-9 record last season, winning its first Big East title since 1993 and going to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2006.
