Just for kicks, Mark Miller updated his "Crystal Ball prediction" on 247 Sports a few weeks ago changing his prediction for Keshawn Justice from Northern Iowa to Green Bay: 247sports.com/Player/Keshawn-Justice-87762

That is kind of exciting. I don't think Justice is super athletic but he just has a confident and in control way about how he plays. Plus he is a good shooter. At his size he would be a match up problem for the HL.

I would be really disappointed if Justice ended up at Chattanooga. I know they have a Badger as their head coach but that is a guy with no track record and the best I can tell not a lot of connections in that area for recruiting. Plus it seems like their new coach is going to break in style from what they have had the last 4 years so I am not sure what kind of continuity there will be. To me that doesn't scream instant success.

I believe Justice has visited Chattanooga, Eastern Kentucky and Loyola. I think I read he is also going to visit Santa Clara. None of those basketball programs are currently better or at least a lot better than GB. If he can only take 5 visits that makes it kind of tight to see if GB can land him.
Congrats to him. I would imagine Justin Gainey who was recently on staff at Marquette for a few years was a key connection. Add in that they have a coach in Julius Hodge who was similar player and made it to the NBA, it probably wasn't a tough sell. Getting 4 games a year against St. Mary's and Gonzaga can't suck. Plus being close to Silicon Valley can set him up for after basketball.
They have a young team so I will be curious to see if he is able to play right away. If not he may be sitting awhile. They also have Herb Sendek who has been a high major guy twice and I would imagine would leave right away if he received another chance. So those will be two interesting things to watch over Justice's 4 years.
