Justin Gladney might not have a story to tell like his co-athletes, but his basketball talent is second to none. As a point guard, Justin’s court vision has often led the Huskies to victories.
Get to know him better as this Justin Gladney Bio proceeds.
Justin Gladney On Netflix’s Last Chance U: Basketball Season 2
If you’re a basketball fanatic, Netflix’s Last Chance U: Basketball is just the show for you. It features the basketball team of East Los Angeles College (ELAC) as they climb the ranks each passing season. However, they were once a team struggling to win any match, and it was only after the arrival of Head coach John Mosley, the players showed the world exactly what they are made of.
The basketball prodigy, Justin Gladney joined the Huskies for its 2021-22 season. So, this means, he appeared on Last Chance U season 2 alongside several new faces with struggle stories of their own. However, unlike others, Justin didn’t have a tough life. He wasn’t adopted (just so he could play basketball) like Shemar Morrow or suffered from autism like Josh Phillips.
Rather, Justin’s talent for basketball was recognized at a young age, which even got him the opportunity to participate in the 2016 Ballislife Jr. All-American Camp — an event organized by Open Gym Premier and West Coast Elite 25. Later, the basketball player then joined Fairfax High School and became an integral part of the institute’s basketball team, the Fairfax Lions. Also, thanks to his impressive performance, the team then earned several achievements.
Thereafter, in 2021, Justin finally joined East Los Angeles College’s basketball team. As a guard, his eagle-eyed vision was vital in winning several matches. Reportedly, he has already played 29 matches as a Husky and participated in 8 conferences. To be precise, he’s spent over 461 minutes on the basketball court and started 10 games. Also, he has scored 186 points, blocked once, and stolen the ball 28 times.
Besides remarkable solo statistics, Justin also has a whopping 106 assists on his record with 50 turnovers.

Unlike most of his teammates, Justin Gladney is still with ELAC Husky today (as of 2022). He signed up with East Los Angeles College for the 2022-2023 season, meaning, we might be seeing him in the next season of Last Chance U as well.
At the time of writing this article, the Huskies already had 8 official games of the 2022-2023 season with 6 wins and 2 losses. The two defeats came on November 13, and December 2, while ELAC was paired against West Los Angeles College and Fullerton College, respectively.
On the other hand, ELAC won all three of its games in the Riverside City Tournament.
Also, continuing his journey at ELAC alongside Justin was Shemar Morrow who never dreamed of making it big.
