Baylor’s Keyonte George will forgo his remaining college eligibility and enter the 2023 NBA draft, he tells Jonathan Givony of ESPN.
The 6’4″ guard is a potential lottery pick, currently ranked ninth overall on ESPN’s big board.
“I don’t really worry about (how high) I’ll be picked – I respect everyone that is trying to fulfill their dreams,” George said. “I’m looking for fit, somewhere where I can learn and grow at the same time. It’s important for me to be an all-around player and not just a scorer. I’m looking forward to showing NBA teams how tough I am and the savvy I carry myself with.”
As a freshman for the Bears in 2022/23, George averaged 15.3 PPG, 4.2 RPG, 2.8 APG and 1.1 SPG on .373/.338/.793 shooting in 33 games (28.6 MPG). He was named to the All-Big 12 Second Team and was also named the top freshman in the conference.
According to Givony, George is a dynamic scorer with long range who has an impressive ability to change speeds. He also praises George’s creativity, footwork and body control.

Yeah he sure looked ready with his immense failure in big games!
Yeah, I don’t see it in him either.
When was your big game? Wait was it sitting on the sofa watching his games?
Great another 6’4 6’3 shooting guard. Learn to be a PG or be another one of millions undersized players in todays NBA
