Justin Pippen, one of the major stockrisers in the 2024 class, is officially off the board and headed to Michigan to play for new head coach Dusty May.

The 6-foot-3 four-star shooting guard out of Sierra Canyon (CA) chose the Wolverines over a final group of Cal, Florida, Stanford, and Texas A&M.

Pippen discusses his decision to choose the Wolverines with On3.

“I chose Michigan because my long-term goal is to make the NBA,” he said. “Michigan is great for my development and playing on that big of a stage in that conference is great for me.”

According to the 2024 On3 Industry Ranking, Pippen is ranked as the No. 93 overall player in the country.

Justin Pippen Scouting Report

“Justin Pippen is an aggressive guard. He has a good frame, growing to the 6-3, 6-4 range with long arms and a projectable build. He is comfortable on or off the ball. Pippen aggressively touches the paint in the half court and finishes well at and above the rim. The jump shot is becoming a weapon as he continues to learn his shot selection. Pippen will need to continue working on the footwork and angles to help get to his spots. Simplifying his game, working on decision making as he enters a college offense is a next step as well. Pippen is a late bloomer, having grown a few inches over the last year. He was a focal point of his high school’s offense for the first time this season and proved up to the task at Sierra Canyon/CA. Pippen’s game continues to improve and he is on a clear upward trajectory. He has defensive upside, guarding on and off the ball with purpose. He is the son of NBA Hall of Famer Scottie Pippen.” – On3’s Jamie Shaw
