Out of Missouri’s 2025 class, Cohen George is a post that has continued to develop his game. He has great size already standing at 6’10” and attends Ozark High School and plays with the Yanders Law program. 

Throughout the spring and summer with Yanders Law, the game of George only greatly improved. “My season with YLB was amazing, this was my second summer playing there and both have been awesome. I have grown completely as a player and a person while playing for the team.”

Even with his 6’10” height and good length, there is much more to like about his game. He moves very well for his size and plays with plenty of energy. He is a standout playing in the paint on both ends of the floor but has also shown growing versatility to his game. He is at his best playing with his back to the basket scoring with good touch paired with strong post moves. George is also a tough interior defender and is very effective on the boards. 

With his already established post game, George is looking to round out his game. “I’ve been working on my perimeter game in hopes to become a better perimeter player,” George said about working on his handle, shooting, and passing. “I think I have a lot more to bring to teams than just playing in the post. Towards the end of this summer, I started knocking down some mid-range shots and expanding my range a little bit. Since then, I have improved it even more, so I hope to keep working on that and become an elite shooter as well as improving my post moves and touch around the rim.” 

Even with all his tools and tremendous upside, he has yet to see much college interest so far. As he enters his junior year, George already shows plenty of tools for the college level. In his upcoming high school season, he is looking to “make a run for a state title.”
