Knott County Central junior Camron Justice announced Saturday that he has committed to play basketball for the University of Tennessee. Justice is considered one of the top prospects in the state and played for the Lexington-based Kentucky Travelers team this past summer.

The 6-foot-2 shooting guard has helped lead Knott Central to the Sweet Sixteen in each of the past two seasons. He also had scholarship offers from Western Kentucky and UAB, and he has received interest from several other schools, including Louisville. 

Rivals.com ranks Justice as the No. 139 overall prospect in the Class of 2015. He is Tennessee’s first commitment for that class.
