George Washington III is a 6′2′ 170-pound combo guard out of Dayton, Ohio, with a repertoire of skills that can be pivotal for the growth of the men’s program since guard play is a must to compete at the elite level.
The Ohio native initially committed to the Buckeyes in November of 2021, and a year later, he flipped to the Wolverines.
The ninth-ranked shooting guard in the 2023 class listed the Buckeyes, Louisville, Wake Forest, Dayton, and Virginia as his destinations before joining the men in maize on Tuesday (Nov. 1).
Washington III will join fellow 2023 4-star big man Papa Kante who committed to Michigan on Oct. 20.
Kante, a 6′10″ big man out of Senegal who currently plays for South Kent School in Connecticut, is ranked 108th in his class and 14th best at the center position.
