Vanderbilt lands commitment from son of former NBA star, 2019 power forward
Apparently, the sons of former NBA stars all go to Sierra Canyon High School in Chatsworth, California. And, apparently, the Vanderbilt Commodores are focusing heavily on landing players from that high school.
After landing Scotty Pippen Jr. back when Bryce Drew was still the coach, Jerry Stackhouse and the Commodores added Kenyon Martin Jr. to their 2019 class on Sunday.
As you can see below, Martin announced his decision via Twitter:

Per the 247Sports composite, Martin is a 3-star recruit. He’s the No. 44 power forward in the class of 2019 and the No. 24 overall recruit from the state of California.
Martin is the fourth player in the Commodores’ 2019 class. Prior to his commitment, the class ranked No. 9 in the SEC and No. 51 in the nation, per 247Sports.
Stackhouse never played with Martin’s dad in the NBA, but their careers did overlap from 2000 to 2013.
