It’s the staple of his game and the reason he’s attracted attention from some of the top programs in college basketball.
Keyonte George Highlights
Once George crosses half court, he has the green light. The 6-foot-4, 185-pound guard can heat up quickly. He’ll rise for one or two-dribble pull-ups with ease. Give George an inch of space, and it’s a good look for him.
As a spot up shooter, he hunts open space along the perimeter. His pure stroke forces defenders to close out aggressively, opening up mid-range opportunities.
George attacks the rim most often in transition. He flies ahead of the pack and finishes with athletic dunks. He also likes pulling up from downtown. An emphasis on getting to the rim in the half court and polishing his handle will improve his scoring arsenal.
Defensively, George is a sturdy defender when engaged. His physical tools bother smaller guards and force turnovers. It’s a question of when he turns it on.
The five-star recruit has drawn comparisons to NBA guard D’Angelo Russell for his smooth game. Neither Russell nor George are overly athletic. Rather, they are deadly shooters with the skillset to create a bucket at any time.
