Seton Hall's quest to land elite Class of 2012 prospect Kyle Anderson is so important to the future of the program that Pirates fans will over-analyze any scrap of information to gain insight on what school the New Jersey native will choose.
As a result, expect a pair of cryptic Seton Hall-related tweets from Anderson to garner plenty of attention the next few days.
On the same night as Georgetown coach John Thompson III was at Anderson's house for an in-home visit, the 6-foot-8 point guard had this to say about Seton Hall:
"I want to know if i dont choose SHU will i still be able to come to all the games i been going to them every year since i was 9 lol," he wrote. "I love everything about SHU tho being a pirate will be great tho!! I hate wen ppl tell me not to go there."
Landing Anderson would be a game changer for a Seton Hall program that is attempting to climb back into the upper echelon of the Big East under second-year coach Kevin Willard.
Anderson, who attends New Jersey's famed St. Anthony's High School, is Rivals.com's No. 2 prospect in the Class of 2012 and is still considering UCLA, Florida, Georgetown and St. John's in addition to the Pirates. If he were to spurn those more established programs in favor of Seton Hall, it could be the spark the Pirates need to jumpstart a program that last made the NCAA tournament in 2006 and last won a tournament game in 2004.
The plan for Anderson is to announce his college destination next Tuesday night, so Seton Hall fans won't have to ponder his cryptic tweets too much longer. Until then, however, it will be an anxious week for the Pirates.

Kyle Anderson sure is a heck of a poker player.
He’s got everyone guessing about his future.
On the same night that he had a home visit with Georgetown head coach John Thompson III, the 6-foot-8 St. Anthony point guard tweeted about potentially picking Seton Hall.
“I want to know if i dont choose SHU will i still be able to come to all the games i been going to them every year since i was 9 lol,” he Tweeted.
“I love everything about SHU tho being a pirate will be great tho!! I hate wen ppl tell me not to go there,” he added.
Anderson has two former Paterson Catholic teammates currently at Seton Hall in Jordan Theodore and Fuquan Edwin.
Against this backdrop, Seton Hall fans plans to flock to his game Wednesday night in the Fall Ball League at Paterson (N.J.) Kennedy. They were out in force last week, as was reported here.
Meantime, Thompson and Hoyas assistant Robert Kirby visited Anderson Tuesday after taking in an open gym at St. Benedict’s Prep. Anderson was accompanied by his mother, Suzanne, his brother and sister.
Amid all this, others in the Anderson camp believe St. John’s is still very much in play.
And don’t count out Florida. He is headed there this weekend on an official visit that his father told SNY.tv could be “very instrumental” in his “recruiting process.”
Anderson plans to announce Sept. 20, his 18th birthday.
For more news and videos on this Mr. Anderson (not Keaanu Reeves), do a search on the blog by using the search box on right sidebar. The search box is there somewhere, I tell you. Right now, it's right after COB's SLAM "UCLA Don't call it a comback" cover and the prospects lists.
