Vanderbilt Basketball Adds Former UT Recruit Camron Justice for 2015

Quick, someone photoshop some new players into this picture. - Frederick Breedon

First Cornell transfer Nolan Cressler, now Camron Justice. The Vanderbilt backcourt will be loaded with shooting talent in 2015-2016.

Kevin Stallings nailed down his first recruit for 2015 on Sunday, and it's bound to turn a few heads around Knoxville.

Vanderbilt got a verbal commitment from Camron Justice, a Kentucky shooting guard who decommitted from the University of Tennessee back in February. The 6'3" high school junior picked Vandy after an unofficial visit to Nashville last weekend. While the young shooter had nothing but good things to say about the Volunteers and suggested that he could end up back with the program this summer, he'll certainly earn some scorn from UT fans after picking their in-state rival two-and-a-half months after leaving Cuonzo Martin's last recruiting class in Knoxville.

Justice is a sweet-shooting guard who should thrive under Kevin Stallings's three-point emphasizing style of play. He averaged 24.8 points per game as a junior at Knott County Central High School in Hindman, Kentucky this past season. That performance made him a consensus three-star prospect from the major national recruiting services. Rivals has him rated as the 133rd best player in his class - a distinction that could change based on a strong senior season in Hindman.

He chose the Commodores over offers from UT, Wake Forest, Butler, Notre Dame, Gonzaga, and others. With Justice on board, Vanderbilt's 2015-2016 depth chart could potentially look like this:

G: Kedren Johnson, Riley LaChance
G: Nolan Cressler, Wade Baldwin
G: Matthew Fisher-Davis, Jeff Roberson
C: Damian Jones, Josh Henderson (pending medical redshirt)

That's a squad that has plenty of shooting, a point guard who can get into the paint and score, and a big man in the middle to block shots, pull down rebounds, and score from the block. However, the 'Dores will have to pad out their roster with some big man depth now that the backcourt is filled with young prospects. Adding a guy like Josh Sharma or Alex Illikailen for '15-16 would go a long way to fixing that problem.
