Camron Justice a former Kentucky Mr. Basketball in 2015 is on the market and looking for a new home, could WKU be that home? This would be a way that 3 of the last 4 Mr. Basketball could team up, with Carson Williams and Taveion Hollingsworth.

Coming out of high school Justice was a 3-star player from Knott County Central according to 247 sports, had offers from Tennessee, UAB, Clemson, WKU and ultimately picked Vanderbilt.

After the 2017 season Justice decided to transfer to IUPUI in Indianapolis, IN. While at IUPUI Justice averaged 18.6 points a game 3 rebounds and 2 assists a game while playing 32 minutes a game.

Coming out of High School Justice held an offer from Western Kentucky then coached by Ray Harper. Would be interesting to see if Rick Stansbury makes a move for Justice as a grad transfer. Justice is a 6’3 point guard who could fill the opening left by Lamonte Bearden.
