Keyonte George’s list included Oklahoma State, NCAA Basketball blue-bloods Kansas and Kentucky, and in-state powers Baylor and Texas. Each program’s name carries significant weight and is the perfect platform for a player of his caliber. The list also shows the clear absence of the early professional route (i.e., the G-League or NBL) other top players have begun to increasingly pursue, but it has not been officially ruled out.
During his junior season for national prep program iSchool of Lewisville (TX), George accumulated 23.2 points, 2.8 assists, 4.8 rebounds, and 2.1 steals per game. The production for 5-star has been consistently strong throughout his high school career, but it’s the areas unseen on a stat sheet that he has really stepped into nicely to round out his presence on the court. George, both at iSchool and for grassroots program Southern Assault 3SSB, has taken the onus to become the leader and true captain at all times on the floor.
With the production and highlight plays that he brings throughout games, George is helping to bring along the talent of future classes and ensure games are won every time he steps onto the court. His preparedness in this role and the complete production he embodies make him a natural candidate to immediately contribute at the next level and become a fan favorite.
Regardless of his choice for a future basketball home, George is going to be hard to keep out of the starting lineup and will become a national name when it’s all said and done. A fun angle to keep tabs on is the potential to team up with fellow Dallas-native and 4-star guard Arterio Morris, which could occur at Texas or Kansas.
