The number-one ranked shooting guard in the country will be staying in his home state

One of the Texas Longhorn's top basketball recruiting targets for the class of 2022 announced his college commitment on Sunday, as Keyonte George of iSchool Entrepreneurial Academy (Lewisville, TX) declared that he will be taking his talents to Waco to play for the defending national champion Baylor Bears. 

In the hoops class of 2022, George is the number-one ranked shooting guard in Texas and the number two overall player in the country, according to 247Sports.

This commitment to a rival Big 12 school like Baylor is a huge loss on the recruiting trail for Texas and head coach Chris Beard. The Longhorns are in the midst of a major roster overhaul that saw the team land some of the best transfers in the country over the summer, as George would have added to the elite talent level for the future of the program.
