Baylor lands another elite talent in Keyonte George, helping to solidify the program as a national powerhouse.
George is a big 6-5 guard with broad shoulders and a solid frame. He’s a smooth athlete with good quickness and explosiveness for a player his size. This combination of size, strength and quickness makes him too much to handle at the high school level and he will likely be a problem in college as well.
He’s a born bucket getter who can score the ball at will and has a nose for the basket. He’s got an easy release on his jumper and a really smooth 3pt shot.
George doesn’t have elite blow-by speed or an elite first step but he’s very crafty with the ball in his hands, using ball fakes and jab steps to keep the defender off balance and he can also use his big frame to power his way into the lane.
He’s got great hops, can finish above the rim and gets really good elevation on his mid range jumper. His powerful build allows him to absorb a lot of hits on the way to the rim and score through contact.
George is an elite level prospect who has a very bright future and looks like a future lottery pick.
