It’s tough to forget Scottie Pippen. He’s a basketball Hall of Famer who was an integral part of the Chicago Bulls’ dominant run in the ’90s. Pippen retired following the 2003-04 season — which doesn’t seem like it was that long ago.
Turns out, it actually was a long time ago, because Scottie Pippen’s son, Scotty Pippen Jr., is old enough to commit to a college.
Pippen Jr. has decided to take his talents to Vanderbilt. He announced the news on Twitter on Friday.
Pippen Jr. — a point guard who is listed at 6-0, 160 pounds — had offers from four other colleges, according to 247sports. He’s considered a three-star recruit.
If he can develop at Vanderbilt, it’s possible Pippen Jr. could work his way into draft consideration. He wouldn’t be able to team with Michael Jordan’s son on a future NBA team, but LeBron James Jr. is only a few years behind him.
