Knott County Central shooting guard Camron Justice announced his commitment to Vanderbilt on Sunday night.
Justice — a 6-foot-2 prospect in the class of 2015 — was committed to Tennessee until February, when he opened up his recruitment and almost immediately named the Commodores his new favorite.
Gonzaga, Boston College, Butler, Notre Dame and Western Kentucky were among the other schools near the top of Justice’s list, but he went ahead and ended the recruitment Sunday.
Justice averaged 25.5 points per game and made 41 percent of his three-point attempts this season, leading Knott Central to its third consecutive appearance in the Sweet Sixteen. He was one of only two juniors — along with Holmes guard Beetle Bolden — to be a first-team selection on the Herald-Leader’s all-state list. Justice will also be among the favorites for Mr. Basketball honors next season.
Rivals.com ranks him as the No. 133 overall prospect in the 2015 class.
