2016 Intro: Justice Kithcart

While Lynchburg (Va.) Virginia Episcopal may feature top-100 big man Sacha Killeya-Jones as its main attraction, 2016 guard Justice Kithcart has attracted major conference interest as well.

No doubt due in part to the presence of his heralded teammate, Justice Kithcart will enjoy the opportunity to impress myriad college coaches this season. A 6-2 junior combo guard, Kithcart is a quick and hard-charging athlete with legitimate high-major quickness.

He also boasts a lean, powerful frame that should fill out and become even more of a weapon over time. Kithcart does his best work in the open floor and blazing to the rim after receiving a high ball screen. Though not yet a classical floor general, he projects as a tough defender who can handle players at either backcourt position.

To accompany with his progress, a variety of schools are keeping tabs.

Clemson was my latest offer,” Kithcart said. “I also have offers from UC-Irvine, James Madison, ODU (Old Dominion), Northern Arizona and UNC-Wilmington.”

Kithcart is busy on the court with VES this fall yet also intends to visit both the Tigers and East Carolina. He and Killeya-Jones took a trip to Virginia, though that visit was more for his teammate and less for him.

Still, he clearly is piecing together a solid recruitment with an opportunity to expand his interest during the next several months.

”Schools like me as a pure point, and I can also be a combo,” Kitcart said. “I’m looking for my playing style, which is to get up and down.”

Kithcart said he’s in no rush to make a decision or whittle his list.
