It is becoming more and more obvious that new Vanderbilt men’s head basketball coach Jerry Stackhouse has jumped into the job with a game plan for success.

The former NBA standout nabbed one of the best prospects in Louisiana when shooting guard Jordan Wright inked with the Commodores. The 6-foot-6, 200 pounder becomes the third signee in Vandy’s current class. Another notable signee is Scottie Pippen, Jr.

Wright prepped at Dunham, averaging 19.3 points, 12 rebounds and 7.0 assists per outing this past season. He attacks the rim, demonstrates explosive ability around the rim and creates his own shot off the dribble. A fit for Vanderbilt’s high academic standards, he holds a 4.2 GPA.

Other offers Wright considered were from Tulane, Louisiana Tech, Houston, Ga. Tech, TCU, Iona, Minnesota, UAB, Grambling, Southern, UAB, Stephen F. Austin, UC Riverside, Texas A&M, Va. Tech and Richmond.

Wright is close friends with LSU true freshman cornerback Derek Stingley, Jr. who also attended Dunham.
