Pippen Jr. took an official visit to the Commodores' campus earlier this month, and also had Washington State, San Francisco, Colorado State, UC Santa Barbara and Hofstra on his list.
A 6-foot-1 point guard out of Sierra Canyon High School (California), Pippen Jr. is considered a four-star prospect by ESPN. He played for the Oakland Soldiers on the Nike EYBL circuit last spring and summer, averaging 15.0 points, 3.6 rebounds and 2.6 assists over the 23-game season. Pippen Jr. also racked up 1.1 steals per game, while making just over 30 percent of his 3-point attempts.
Vanderbilt landed elite point guard Darius Garland in the 2018 class, but he will miss the rest of the season with a meniscus injury in his left knee and could enter June's NBA draft.
Pippen Jr.'s father won six NBA championships with the Chicago Bulls and played in seven NBA All-Star Games. He was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame in 2010 and currently works as an NBA analyst for ESPN.
