After deciding to transfer at the completion of the fal semester, Camron Justice has already found a new home. The sophomore guard has decided to continue his career with Jason Gardner and the IUPUI Jaguars, according to Jon Rothstein of Fan Rag Sports.

Justice will rejoin a familiar face with the Jags, as he played high school ball with Jaguar forward Evan Hall at Knott County Central in Kentucky. Justice was one of the best players in the state as he was named the Kentucky Gatorade Player of the Year and Mr. Basketball during his senior season. He also finished as the third-leading scorer in Kentucky high school history with 3,588 points during his career.

As a freshman at Vanderbilt, Justice saw limited playing time, at just under 10 minutes per contest. In that time, he contributed 3.4 points per game.

This year, his role had been much of the same under new coach Bryce Drew.

Justice is the second player to transfer from the Commodores since Drew was hired. Samir Sehic transferred to Tulane in May after Drew replaced Kevin Stallings.

Per NCAA transfer rules, Justice will be ineligible to play for the Jaguars for one year. Since he transferred in the middle of the year, he should be eligible for the second half of the 2017-18 season.
