"I'm headed to Vanderbilt," he said, according to 247Sports' Evan Daniels. "I picked them because I have a good relationship with the coaches. I like the school a lot.
"I think it's a great fit for me academically and athletically. I feel like they needed me at the point guard position."
Pippen Jr. is rated as a three-star point guard with a small 6-foot, 160-pound build. He's 276th on the 247Sports composite ranking.
Vanderbilt is currently struggling at point guard after losing five-star recruit Darius Garland for the season due to a meniscus injury. The 6-foot-2 sharpshooter is expected to declare for the 2019 NBA Draft, potentially leaving an opening for Pippen Jr. next season.
