Justice Kithcart is good, in fact he is damn good and has been for a while. While he has sat and watched other point guards in his class pick up offers and get all the headlines. The 6’2” 2016 has continued to grind out wins.

He is an alum of both the North Carolina Top 80 and the Virginia Top 80 as well have having participated in multiple NC Phenom 150 camps, Phenom High School showcases, and Phenom AAU Tournaments. After all these viewings, the common theme seems to be the same about Kithcart, the kid is tough, he is lightning quick, and the kid wins.

After seeing him at a NC Phenom 150 Camp, The Hoops Column wrote, “He broke down defenders at will and found himself finishing at the rim more times than not. He showed off an improved jumper to go along with noticeably more athleticism.”

After watching him at the 2014 North Carolina Top 80 All Metro Hoops wrote, “He has a crafty handle, is quick, and pushes the ball with a purpose. Knows how to set his guys up. Plays hard on both ends and can finish in traffic.”

After seeing him at the 2014 North Carolina Top 80 Marcus Shockley wrote, “He is a guard who showed an active, athletic game all day. Has an ability to get buckets in transition and an effective slasher in the halfcourt. Really solid looking prospect.”

Following the 2015 Virginia Top 80 we wrote,True to form, Kithcart was one of the more competitive players in this camp. He was faced with some very intriguing match-ups on the day, and went right at every one of them. During camp, Kithcart showed the ability to consistently knock down the 3 point shot, both off the catch and both ways off the dribble. He also showed good ball handling skills and the ability to get into the lane and finish through contact. Kithcart is a very good on ball defender, using his quickness and understanding of footwork to make life hard on his man.”

On Wednesday, Kithcart’s recruitment was kicked up a notch when Pittsburgh of the ACC offered him. That now puts Kitchart’s offer list at 11, and he is looking to narrow his list and set official visits, “I have three official visits set so far, I’ll narrow my list after I take those.”

While he hasn’t set all his officials, Kithcart does have an idea of who is recruiting him the hardest and what he is looking for through the process, “Pittsburgh, Wichita State, Creighton, Virginia Tech, and Old Dominion are recruiting me the hardest, but Wichita State and Virginia Tech have not offered. I have officials set for Old Dominion, Creighton, and Pittsburgh. I want to go where I am priority to the coaching staff and the team. I want to go somewhere that I will get better along with get a useful degree.”

While Kitchart is still open to new comers, he has a solid grasp on his game and what he will bring to any program at the next level, “I am a true point guard who is one of the fastest in the nation. I have the ability to get into the lane at will and either finish or create for my team mates. When you leave me open, I can knock down shots. I want a fast paced up-tempo system, because I am best in transition and in the pick and roll.”

As we mentioned above, Kithcart has been coming to many Phenom events throughout the years. It has stood out to him with the amount of help the platform has provided, “Phenom Hoops has been great. I’ve been going to Phenom events since I was small and they were the first to notice my talent.”

It is no surprise an ACC offered Kithcart, who plays with a constant chip on his shoulder. He has a fantastic frame from a point guard and is very quick with the ball in his hands.
