After eye-popping performances during the first three EYBL sessions, Pro Skills guard Justin Webster is now firmly on the radar of high-major programs after being one of the most under-valued sophomore prospects.
Not many prospects have raised their stock as much as Prestonwood Christian (TX) sophomore Justin Webster. The 6’3 guard has seemingly come out of nowhere over the past month and emerged as a highly skilled scorer with great potential.
Webster has been extremely productive with Pro Skills on the EYBL circuit, averaging close to 16 points per game while shooting better than 45% from the field and 35% beyond the arch. Justin has range out to 30 feet, with one of the quickest releases we’ve seen this Spring. He’s a versatile shooter that is excellent off the catch but also has the ability to hit the midrange pullup off the dribble.
“Shooting and scoring is most definitely the strongest part of my game,” said Webster.
While Pro Skills got off to a slow start during EYBL play, Justin was instrumental in helping the Texas-based club go 4-0 in Atlanta by averaging 20.3 points per game for the weekend and keeping hopes alive for a spot in the Peach Jam.
“Things have been a challenge this Spring. We started 0-8 which really shocked us, but we still believe that we are capable and can do anything as long as we keep working. I feel I have played pretty good but not as well as I’ve wanted. I’m still capable of doing way more than I’ve been doing, but it will all all come I’m not worried about that.”
On the recruiting trail, Oklahoma, Tulsa and Oklahoma State have all extended official offers so far with Oregon, Illinois, Tulane, SMU and Creighton showing interest per Justin.
While Webster’s recruitment is still in the very early stages, he has a few schools he’s planning to check out in the near future.
“This summer I’d like to visit Oklahoma, Oregon, Oklahoma State and Illinois.”
The recent recognition for Justin is well deserved considering the ability he’s displayed, but his primary goal is to continue to develop and improve his game.
“I just want to continue to get better each and every day, pick up some more offers, and show coaches and scouts I’m truly ready for the spotlight.”
Look for Webster to continue picking up high major offers in July, as his scoring ability and shooting prowess against elite competition while playing up a year is certainly going to capture attention from coaches across the country.
