Scotty Pippen, son of NBA Hall of Fame member and Chicago Bulls great Scottie Pippen, announced his commitment to the Commodores in a Twitter post in which he thanked God and his parents and coaches.
I would like to thank god for blessing me to be able to play the game that I love. I would also like to thank everyone who has ever supported me. A huge thank you to my parents and the rest of my family for always supporting me and helping me to be the best I could be. I would like to thank my coaches, trainers, and people around me who have pushed me to the next level and helped me reach where I am today. I want to thank all the coaches who took the time and recruited me. What that being said I would like to announce my commitment to VANDERBILT UNIVERSITY. #AnchorDown.
Watching his video, Pippen is very quick and a great ball handler. He has excellent passing skills and solid shooting ability. Playing for the AAU Oakland soldiers he made 34% of his threes (12 of 35), was 47% on FGs, and 65% at the line. Over 10 games (averaging 12 minutes per game) he had 23 assists, 16 steals, 7 blocks and 32 rebounds.
Pippen and his father had visited Vanderbilt on Monday and apparently liked what they saw.
Pippen Jr. joins guard Austin Crowley and forward Dylan Disu as commits for the 2019 Vanderbilt basketball recruiting class.
