The Vanderbilt Commodores may have had several players leave via the transfer portal after the season ended, but head coach Jerry Stackhouse has filled their spots just as quickly.
On Monday, Vanderbilt landed a commitment from TCU transfer Terren Frank, filling the team’s final open scholarship and adding the program’s second transfer player in the last three days after landed former Dayton guard Rodney Chatman over the weekend.
Frank, a 6-foot-8 forward, is a former high school teammate of VU point guard Scotty Pippen Jr. at Sierra Canyon and was recruited heavily by Vanderbilt last year before committing to TCU. The ‘Dores were one of four finalists along with Arizona and USC.
A three-star recruit according to the 247Sports’ composite rankings in 2019, Frank played in just 14 of the Horned Frogs’ 26 games last season, averaging 8.6 minutes, 1.9 points and 0.9 rebounds per game. He reportedly missed time due to struggles with COVID-19.
Due to the NCAA’s COVID-19 waiver rule and its new one-time transfer rule, Frank will be eligibility and have four years of eligibility remaining. He’s the third transfer Stackhouse has brought in, joining Chatman and former Minnesota center Liam Robbins.
Should Pippen Jr. remain in the NBA draft, the Commodores will have another open scholarship to fill.
