Michigan picked up a key piece for the 2024 recruiting class, adding the son of an NBA Hall of Famer in the process.

The player is Justin Pippen, son of the legendary Chicago Bulls forward Scottie Pippen. He revealed his commitment after a weekend visit to Ann Arbor.

“They see me coming in as a player that can impact the floor right away, so I’m excited to get to work,” said Pippen. He becomes the first high school commitment for new head coach Dusty May in the 2024 recruiting class.

Pippen is 6-foot-3 and 180 pounds and is rated as a 4-star prospect per the 247 Sports Composite. He is rated as a combo guard for the next level and is the No. 13 CG for the cycle along with being rated the 101st overall player in the country.

Pippen’s father is in the Hall of Fame after a legendary career alongside Michael Jordan, and his older brother, Scotty Pippen Jr., starred at Vanderbilt before beginning his NBA career with stints at the Los Angeles Lakers and the Memphis Grizzlies.

Pippen joins a Michigan recruiting class for May that has already signed 3-star point guard Durral Brooks, the No. 2 in-state player for the cycle. Brooks signed with the program in November but has not wavered in the coaching change up to this point.
