07:21 AM ET 07.17 | On June 28, both Isaiah Whitehead and Ja'Quan Newton sent tweets that hinted of a package deal. [Whitehead and Newton] initially confirmed the rumors to Jeff Borzello of CBS Sports on June 28. Following the first July live period this weekend, Whitehead continued to fuel the fire of the package deal that would send two top-50 players to one school's backcourt. "We're just talking about it," Whitehead told NBC Sports [on Saturday]. ... The duo both hold offers from Georgetown, Minnesota, Rutgers and Syracuse. As Borzello mentioned in June, Richard Pitino and his staff have made an effort to recruit the northeast and it appears it is paying off for the Golden Gophers. "I'm taking [my official visits] after the live period," Whitehead said. As for taking any official visits with Newton? "Possibly Minnesota," Whitehead answered.
