WATCH: Texas Longhorns Basketball Target Keyonte George Heats up At NBPA Top 100 Camp in Orlando

New head coach Chris Beard is off to a fast start with the Texas Longhorns, picking up extensive talent from the transfer portal, all while building an elite coaching staff.

Longhorns target Keyonte George ranks as one of the top players in the 2022 class, receiving offers from Texas, Kansas, Oklahoma State, Baylor and Kentucky.

On Tuesday, George was lighting it up from deep at the NBPA Top 100 camp in Orlando.

Assistant head coach Ulric Maligi, who came to Austin from Texas Tech, has been actively recruiting the prospect for some time now according to 247Sports. Here’s what George had to say on the matter.

“Coach Ulric Maligi called me and told me that I was one of the first players that they were calling. They wanted to make sure that I knew that I was still a priority as they made the move from Texas Tech to Texas so that was big for me.”
