NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Vanderbilt men’s basketball officially welcomed transfer Terren Frank as the newest member of the Commodore family on Thursday.
“Terren is a versatile and talented forward with size and tremendous basketball pedigree,” said head coach Jerry Stackhouse. “We recruited him heavily as a high school prospect. Our familiarity with Terren and his family and what they are about gives us great confidence in the impact he will make within the Vanderbilt community on and off the floor.”
A rising sophomore, Frank will be immediately eligible after spending his freshman campaign at TCU. The 6-foot-8 forward was No. 90 in the ESPN Top 100 recruits out of Sierra Canyon High School.
Frank averaged 11 points and seven rebounds as a senior. He was named first-team all-league and helped Sierra Canyon to a 30-4 record as the top-ranked team in California in 2020. After winning the Southern Section Open Division and CIF State Regional Open Division, the COVID-19 pandemic canceled the rest of the season. In all, the Los Angeles, California, native helped lead Sierra Canyon to a record of 89-11 and two state championships during his three seasons there.
While at Sierra Canyon, Frank played with Vanderbilt’s Scotty Pippen Jr. (son of Scottie Pippen), Bronny James (son of LeBron James), Zaire Wade (son of Dwyane Wade), Duane Washington Jr. (son of Duane Washington and nephew of Derek Fisher) and Kenyon Martin Jr. (son of Kenyon Martin).
During his rookie campaign in Forth Worth, Frank played in 14 games and averaged 1.9 points and grabbed 12 rebounds in 8.6 minutes per game, which included a season-high eight points against Iowa State and Texas.
Frank joins a pair of graduate transfers in Liam Robbins and Rodney Chatman as well as two incoming four-star freshmen—Gabe Dorsey and Peyton Daniels for Coach Stackhouse’s third season at the helm of the Commodores.
