Delgado makes his pick

Angel Delgado, a native of the Dominican Republic, informed Scout.com that he's come up with a college decision. He plans to play his college basketball at Seton Hall.

Angel Delgado came to his college decision on Friday.

Delgado, who will spend his final season of high school at Huntington (W.V.) Prep, verbally pledged to Kevin Willard and his staff at Seton Hall.

Delgado confirmed the news from the Dominican Republic, where he's been participating with their National Team.

"I felt like it was a great opportunity and this is a chance to go and play right away and try to get to my dream of getting to the NBA," Delgado told Scout.com through a translator.

"Playing time as a freshman was a big factor," he added.

The Pirates beat out a host of schools to reel in the four-star recruit. Among the schools that tracked Delgado, a 6-foot-8, 220-pounder, were Louisville, Kentucky, Fordham, Virginia and Florida State. Delgado liked the fact that Willard prioritized him.

"He did a real good job because I felt like he made me a priority," Delgado said. "He kept in contact with me throughout the summer. The fact that he worked in the NBA was attractive."

Scout.com currently ranks Delgado No. 13 at the power forward position and No. 61 overall in the 2014 recruiting class.

Delgado is Seton Hall's first pledge of the class.
