The Zips have locked up their third recruit for 2011.
Six-foot-2 guard Blake Justice committed to Akron today, a source confirmed. He is a shooter with deep range out of Peebles High School in Southwest Ohio.
HighMajorScoop.com called Justice one of the top returning players in Ohio's Division III. ESPN.com Insider says Justice has a quick release and deep range on his jump shot.
Justice is the second recruit to commit in the past week. Forward Nick Harney was the other. Akron also received a verbal commitment from point guard Dylan Ennis in the fall.
Akron has one more scholarship to give in this class, which Keith Dambrot will use to replace four graduating seniors (two guards, a forward and a center). Sometime next week, I will break down candidates for the fourth scholarship.
