Kentucky Travelers Fare Well in Peach Jam


As a side note to all the Peach Jam recruiting notes we’ve been shoving down your throat this week, it’s been a pleasant surprise to watch the Kentucky Travelers succeed at a high level of basketball. Although the team lost in overtime to the Meanstreets today (THESE NAMES Y’ALL) and didn’t finish high enough to advance out of their pool, the Travelers ended the event 2-3, with two games going to overtime (a win and a loss apiece there).


Guard James Bolden



The Travelers were led throughout the weekend by Justin Johnson (2014) and James “Beetle” Bolden (2015). Bolden has offers from Xavier, Purdue, and Ohio University and hopes to take his unofficial visit to Kentucky very soon; Johnson has been favoring Western Kentucky, Winthrop, Oklahoma State, Boston College, Virginia Tech and Tennessee- but his options could be expanding even more after his strong showing this weekend. Keep an eye on two Kentucky natives doing big things.

    I have played with Justin Johnson and always wondered if UK would look at him. Would be great to see a small town boy go play for the Cats. Always thought he was pretty good. Would love to see him in blue and white.

    I went to school with Justin Johnson back when he was at Sheldon Clark. He is a great kid with a big heart. I would love to see him get some looks from some big time programs. Kid is actually a heck of a baseball player as well. Very athletic!

    10. It’s not the fact that Johnson’s from KY, it’s the fact that he posted 23 points and 14 rebounds against a UK target in the EYBL and posterized the whole Meanstreets team. The kid can hoop.
