Despite at least three scholarships open for the 2009 recruiting class, Seton Hall did not receive a single signed letter of intent in the early signing period, missing out on several prospects along the way.

Recruiting is the obvious lifeblood of a program and is the biggest factor in determining the college basketball odds of success of a program.

Seton Hall has taken an odd approach to filling their roster, hitting the college basketball version of the waiver wire pretty heavily, brining in transfers such as Robert Mitchell (Duquesne), Keon Lawrence (Missouri) and Herb Pope (New Mexico State) and each will be expected to play key roles next season (if not sooner if Lawrence is granted a wiaver).

The Pirates did pick up a verbal commitment from JUCO forward Cliff Dixon at the time of the early signing period. Dixon, whi is currently suspended from the Hutchinson CC team, is expected to sign a letter of intent in the spring signing period.

As for spring targets, the Pirates are looking at Pittsburgh native DeAndre kane, currently at the Patterson School, NC forward Andre Marhold and have also been involved with Wake Forest transfer Jamie Skeen with their open scholarships.
