Justice has early interest

LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Cameron Justice, a 2015 prospect, was one of the main attractions at the Republic Bank Holiday Classic at Lexington Catholic on Thursday and he didn't disappoint with a 26-point outing.

One of the top guards in Kentucky, regardless of class, took the floor at the Republic Bank Holiday Classic at Lexington Catholic on Thursday.

Cameron Justice, a sophomore at Hindman (Ky.) Knott County Central, led the Patriots to the quarterfinals of the event with a 26-point, five-assist effort against Simon Kenton.

A true combo guard, Justice does a little of everything for Knott County Central. He spends quite a bit of time on the ball, but is also capable of coming off screens and filling it up from the wing.

"I like to do what is best for my team, whether that's putting points up on the board or bringing the ball up the court and distributing the ball," Justice said. "I just want to be the best player I can be and the best player I can be for my team to win."

"I've learned a lot over AAU playing against guys bigger than me," Justice added. "I like getting out in transition and playing a little bit ahead of the ball and get some open looks."

On Thursday a handful of colleges were on hand to evaluate Justice. Tennessee, UAB, Belmont, Northern Kentucky were all in the gym.

"It's going real good," he said of his recruitment. "I've heard from all kinds of schools. Tennessee, UAB, Western [Kentucky] and Eastern [Kentucky]."

"I've heard a little bit from Louisville," he added. "They called somebody and said they were interested and that's a big one for me. There has been all kinds of schools."

To date, Justice holds scholarship offers from UAB and Western Kentucky. He's already visited WKU, as well as EKU and Tennessee.

"They were great," he said of his visits. "With Tennessee I looked at the facilities down there and the coaching staff was great."

A 2015 recruit, Justice is still feeling out the recruiting process.

"It's the very beginning," he said. "I've got a lot to do and need to work on my game and see where it goes from there."
