Justin Webster commits to play for Warriors

Justin Webster, a 6-foot-3 guard from Dallas, Texas, made a commitment to join the University of Hawai’i basketball team. He made the announcement through a social media video:

Webster averaged 16.2 points per game as a senior at Hargrave Military Academy in Virginia last season. Prior to enrolling at Hargrave Military, Webster was a three-year starter on three consecutive championship teams at Prestonwood Christian Academy in Plano, Texas. He averaged more than 20 points per game as a junior at Prestonwood and was a first-team all-state selection.

Webster recently made a recruiting visit to Oahu, and had narrowed his final two college choices to Siena and Hawai’i.

He will still have to sign a scholarship agreement and enroll in classes at UH to make it official.

  5. Funny how automatically this guard is welcomed with opened arms, and viewed as a quality recruit by some of you. His highlights are all 3 point shots, no above the rim ability, and played at a Prep school that was in a down year. They were 13-12 and 1-5 in conference play. Many sources have him listed at 6’1”…..

    All I’m saying is, chastise this new recruits the same way you do the other recruits, that just so happen to be from Hawaii.

    For instance, I too, believe that it MAY take a while for Jessiya Villa to get back to where he left off after a two year mission. However, being LDS myself and serving a mission, I will say that things have changed. Missionaries are allowed to workout now, where as when I was on a mission, we could not. He was also the player of the year in two states, not just one, being Gatorade POY as a senior in Hawaii. But, he’s not a quality recruit?

    Just my opinion. Other than that, it really doesn’t matter what any of us think, these men will rally together like always.

  6. I was starting to get very worried about this recruiting class but the latest signings are a boost to the program. Villa at PG, Madut at the 3, Webster is a combo and De Silva on the front line fill our needs. Do we have any other scholies available?

  7. idk bout boost to the program….the two latest additions will mostly get playing time due to the lack of talent ganot has put together so far

  8. AT LEAST TWO ( More Likely All) of the Three 7-footers will probably play Pro…(NBA dev league scouts)
    Samuta AND Hemsley likely have Break-out Years (I think Hemsley could prove better than his smaller, older SDSU bro;)
    Drew Take 2 or 3 more Threes per game easily makes him Top Two league point guard
    Stansberry AND RAIMO WILL Improve ( just making his layups and 3-5 footers)
    And IF TWO OF newcomers Crack Top 8-10 you have SOLID Depth for 18-22 Wins….

    IF ANY Of THE Recruit HYPE pans out…
    THEY Will be Fun to Watch…
    And Improve their Win Totals…


    At Least ONE MORE Scholie…

    I feel people are overlooking Villa in this recruiting class… Maybe because it’s been a while since the public has seen him so it may be an ‘out of sight, out of mind’ type of thing. But I feel even if they can get Villa back 75% of his speed, agility, handles, and court sense that he had prior to the mission in his first year back, he’ll be a heavily relied upon guard to share pg duties with Biggs. I do not see anyone else other than Biggs and Villa on the roster capable of handling the ball with tight defensive pressure on them. I feel good about those guys hopefully Buggs will be the type of leader to take Villa under his wing.

  10. BuffBlu – Slight correction. The 13-12 record was Hargrave’s Varsity team’s. Hargrave’s elite players including Webster were members of the school’s Postgraduate team which had 35-3 record. I was initially confused also.
