Four-star guard George Washington III ready for visit to Michigan

With two pro basketball players as parents, a McDonald’s All-American sister and a brother receiving Division 1 offers, it’s safe to say playing basketball wasn’t a choice for George Washington III – as he said, it was in his blood.

And as the 2023 guard inches closer to his own Division 1 career, his college commitment process is heating up. Ranked 76th overall on the 247 Sports Composite, Washington announced its top five earlier this week after opting out of Ohio State on Sept. 5. That list includes Michigan, and if the Wolverines want to make it to the top of that list, they’ll have a chance to sway it when they visit on Oct. 8-9.

“I’m just really excited, this will be my first time on campus,” Washington told UM Hoops on Friday. “I’ll be very excited just to feel like, you know, really trying to figure out the ins and outs. I have already started to develop a relationship with the coaches, so I think the next step is to see the school and be there in person.

Washington has been in frequent contact with Michigan’s coaching staff, especially coach Juwan Howard. He said the two talked or texted every other day, and Howard himself had been instrumental in his recruiting process.
