3. Keyonte George | Baylor | Freshman | Guard

Keyonte George finds himself in a similar situation to Walker as he begins the NCAA Tournament fresh off back-to-back subpar outings in which his powerhouse program fell short to Iowa State. Those were his first games since spraining his right ankle in late February, so it makes sense that the six-four combo guard looked sluggish in his return to the hardwood.

The 19-year-old freshman is one of the shiftiest players in the nation, with a dynamic ballhandling package he uses to get wherever he wants on the court. George also possesses deep range off the bounce and a lightning-quick release. His dubious shot selection and minimal explosiveness have made him an extremely inefficient scorer. That is somewhat concerning.

A negative assist-to-turnover ratio also muddies the water for projecting whether he can handle primary ballhandling duties. He can potentially answer that question for front offices starting tomorrow when Baylor faces UC Santa Barbara. George is a pesky defender with a broad offensive arsenal, but would PATFO be interested in an erratic backcourt piece?
