At 6’4” 185 lbs., what separates George from other combo-guards from the 2014 NBA Draft class are his uncanny ability to score from anywhere on the court and his ability to be defensive stopper at the 1. George played his college ball at Manhattan College, where he developed into one of the Nation's best scorers. He finished his career as the 4th all-time leading scorer in school history (1942 points). During his Junior season (2012-13), he averaged 19.0 points, 5.6 rebounds and 2.0 steals per game, while shooting 51% from 2, 43% from 3 and 80% from the FT line. During his Senior season (2013-2014), his best game came against GW, when he had 34 points (9-15 FG) & 9 rebounds. George was named to the all-MAAC and NABC all-district first teams, after leading the Jaspers to their first appearance in the NCAA Tournament in over 10 years, garnering MAAC Tourney MVP in the process. In 2014-15, George was drafted by The Oklahoma City Blue in the 3rd round of the NBA Development League Draft. His best game came against the Reno big Horns when he had 12 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists. He was later traded to The Texas Legends, where he finished the 2014-15 season.
