The Hurricanes will have some more international flair when they take the court next season.

Miami added Swiss prospect Kyshawn George to its 2023 class, the team announced Thursday.


“We are delighted to welcome Kyshawn to the Miami basketball program,” UM coach Jim Larrañaga said in a press release. “In addition to being a tremendous player with significant upside, he is an excellent young man who comes from a great family. Kyshawn is a versatile guard who can play multiple positions and is a terrific shooter with unlimited range.

“A cerebral player, he is a true student of the game and has a strong basketball IQ. Kyshawn has competed at a high level in France, both with and against older players, which will help him adjust to the physicality of college basketball.”


While attending school in France, the 6-7 guard played for Élan Chalon, first at the under-18 level and then at the under-21 level last season. In the 2022-23 campaign, he averaged 17.6 points, 6.5 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 2.4 steals.

George, whose father, Deon, played college basketball at St. Francis (Pa.), is the second signee in Miami’s 2023 class, joining center Michael Nwoko.

George joins a team that is losing at least seven players from last season’s Final Four roster. Guard Isaiah Wong is foregoing his final year of eligibility to enter the NBA draft, and guard Jordan Miller is out of eligibility.

Additionally, forward Anthony Walker, center Favour Aire, forward Danilo Jovanovich, guard Harlond Beverly and forward Thomas Oosterbroek have reportedly entered the transfer portal.
