Mac Hippenhammer is an athletic 6’0 170 pound wideout that has jumped onto the radar of not only the football team at Vanderbilt but also head coach Tim Corbin and the Commodores baseball team too.
The Indiana native is considered a top prospect in baseball because his range and athleticism in the outfield but his stock as a football recruit continues to get bigger and bigger. Thus far, Hippenhammer has received three college football offers from Eastern Michigan, Miami (OH) and Toledo and more are sure to arrive in time.
Vanderbilt has began to ramp up their interest with the Indiana native and Hippenhammer has equally strong interest in the Commodores as well.
“Honestly, I really like Vanderbilt a lot,” he said. “Vanderbilt is a place that not only can you earn one of the best educations in the country but also play on the highest level of collegiate sports.”
The Vanderbilt baseball team has actually been in longer contact with Hippenhammer more so than the football coaches have.
“I have actually talked more with the Vanderbilt baseball coaches more than I have with the football team,” said Hippenhammer. “The Vanderbilt baseball program is the best in the country and it’s an honor to be recruited by them. I love playing baseball as much as I do playing the game of football, so having both sports at Vanderbilt recruiting me is really an honor.”
Hippenhammer is still two years away from making into the collegiate ranks. He has a long road of recruiting and school to go through before he has to make any decisions.
Early on, Vanderbilt appears to be a favorite of his and his goal is to play both baseball and football once he makes it to college.
“I am already taking a serious interest with my recruitment because I want to make sure I eventually make the absolute best decision for me. Vanderbilt is a school that will remain high on my list all the way throughout my recruitment. My goal is to play both baseball and football in college, so I want to find a place that will allow me to do both but also a place I feel I can succeed at.” said Hippenhammer.
Look for the two sport star to unofficially visit Vanderbilt sometime in the near future.
“I don’t have an exact date set yet but soon I am planning to make it down to Nashville to visit Vanderbilt,” he said. “I really want to get down there and meet everyone but also see the surroundings as well. I will definitely be there to see both the baseball and football coaches. I am excited about getting down there and continuing my relationship with them.”
