Report: Scottie Pippen's son on Vanderbilt basketball recruiting visit this weekend

Report: Scottie Pippen's son on Vanderbilt basketball recruiting visit this weekend Scotty Pippen Jr., the son of former NBA great Scottie Pippen, will make a recruiting visit to Vanderbilt this weekend, ESPN reported. Pippen, a 6-foot-1 recruit in the class of 2019, is listed as a four-star shooting guard by Scout and a three-star point guard by both 247 Sports and Rivals. Paul Biancardi, national recruiting director for ESPN, tweeted Saturday that Pippen will visit Vanderbilt this weekend. It’s unknown if he will attend the Commodores’ SEC opener against Ole Miss Saturday night.

Scotty Pippen Jr ., son of Hall of Famer and Chicago Bulls great Scottie Pippen , has committed to play basketball at Vanderbilt . He posted the message with graphics onto his Twitter account on Friday. Pippen , a three - star point guard , is in his senior season at Sierra Canyon (Chatsworth, Calif.).

Three - star point guard Scotty Pippen Jr ., son of NBA great Scottie Pippen , committed to Vanderbilt in January. "He had put together a great recruiting class . A guy that he built the program around (Garland) got hurt five games into the season," Barnes said.

The three-star point guard from Sierra Canyon high school in Chatsworth, Calif. will fill an immediate void for Vanderbilt after the loss of starting floor general Darius Garland, a top 2019 draft prospect.

Garland tore his left meniscus attempting a layup during the Commodores' 77–75 loss to Kent State in November. Vanderbilt announced the freshman would be out indefinitely.

With Garland's almost-certain departure for the draft after this season, Pippen Jr. has a good chance step in as one of the program's starting guards. The 6'0" senior averaged 15 points and 2.6 assists per game through 23 games on the Nike NYBL circuit last summer.

His father had a 17-year NBA career, during which he won six NBA Championships with the Chicago Bulls. Pippen Jr., told 247Sports that his dad has helped his game tremendously.
