The UH basketball team today received a commitment from a Dallas-area high school guard.
Justin Webster, who is 6 feet 3, averaged 16.2 points per game this season for Hargrave Military Academy, a boarding school in Chatham, Va.
Webster and his parents recently took an official recruiting visit to Hawaii.

Webster is set to enroll at UH for the July 1 start of Summer Session II.
“I chose UH because Coach (Eran) Ganot has a great coaching staff,” Webster told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser. “They’ve been to where I want to go. They’ve produced a lot of good players. They’re all about putting in the work, and that’s one thing about me. I like to work hard.”
He is the third scholarship member of UH’s 2019 recruiting class. The other commits are Junior Madut, a 6-foot-5 guard from Eastern Florida College, and former Kahuku guard Jessiya Villa, who recently returned from a two-year church mission. Kamereon Ng, a Saint Francis School graduate who was the Honolulu Star-Advertiser’s 2018-19 Player of the Year, is joining as a preferred walk-on.
The Warriors have two remaining available scholarships.
