George is regarded as one of the elite offensive tackles in his recruiting class. He utilizes his long arms to his advantage and doesn’t have a problem with finishing off defenders.
A teammate of key Texas 2020 running back target Zachary Evans, George holds a total of 19 offers from the likes of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, LSU, Ohio State, Oklahoma, and Texas A&M, among numerous others. The North Shore standout has had an impressive junior campaign, and will see his stock continue to rise heading into the offseason.
As for the Longhorns, they currently hold two commitments at the offensive tackle position in the 2019 recruiting cycle from Houston North Forest standout Javonne Shepherd and Conroe Oak Ridge star Tyler Johnson. Texas has offered a total of nine offensive tackles in the 2020 cycle and will be looking to add some more depth at the position as they intend to re-up for another spectacular year of recruiting.
At 6-foot-6, 320 pounds, George is ranked as the nation’s No. 268 prospect and as the No. 30 player in the state for the 2020 cycle, per the 247Sports Composite rankings.
