The six-foot, 160 pound point guard out of Sierra Canyon high school is currently ranked as a three-star recruit by 247sports.com and the 27th best point guard in the country. He also has offers from Washington St., Colorado St., UC Davis, and UC Santa Barbara.
Pippen Jr. has posted impressive stats so far in his high school career, averaging 13.4 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 5.4 assists per game to go along with 2.0 steals in his Jr. year for Sierra Canyon.
His games have been closely watched by scouts, not only because of his strong play but also because of his lineage.
Scottie Pippen Sr. was one of the greatest Bulls of all time and won six championships with the team. He is best known for being the Robin to Michael Jordan’s Batman in the championship runs, but Pippen was certainly a great player in his own right.
He was known for his tenacious defensive pressure and breathtaking athleticism and was a member of the NBA All-defensive first team an astounding eight years in a row. While Jordan received most of the press attention during the Bulls’ Golden Era, Pippen was a key piece.
While he might not be as heavily recruited as his father, Scottie Pippen Jr. has a chance to be a solid NBA player one day and ideally follow in his dad’s footsteps.
