WKU has announced the signing of graduate transfer guard Camron Justice from IUPUI, where he played following a stint at Vanderbilt.

Justice finished third in the Horizon League in scoring last season. He averaged 18.6 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.9 assists for the Jaguars last season. 

“We’re really excited to have Cam join our family,” WKU head coach Rick Stansbury said. “He fills a great need with his outstanding ability to shoot and pass the ball, and he brings tremendous experience and leadership to our program. He’s also been fortunate to have a lot of great basketball coaches in his life, including his dad and a legendary Kentucky high school coach in B.B. King.”

Justice is from Hindman, and played high school basketball at Knott County Central High School. He becomes the third Kentucky Mr. Basketball winner on the Hilltoppers’ roster, joining Taveion Hollingsworth and Carson Williams.

As a graduate transfer, Justice will be immediately eligible to play
