Paul George had some nice things to say about Baker Mayfield.
Oklahoma Thunder forward Paul George, a four-time All Star himself, was asked about another in-state star on Tuesday. George was asked about Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield and the “it” factor that makes him one of the country’s best signal-callers.
George’s response was captured by Fred Katz of the Norman Transcript.
Here’s what George had to say:
“Yeah man he’s been a stud. I’ve been following up on him being here in Oklahoma. He just has that “it” about him. As far as being a leader, he holds everybody accountable and he’s always ready. He’s the perfect guy if you’re a team and you want somebody in that spot. He’s the perfect guy for it.
He’s definitely a guy that’s going to play on Sundays and there’s a lot of money on Sundays. Big fan. Big fan of Baker, he’s been playing really well. His team’s playing really well. Offense – the offense is one of the best in college football. He’s one of the biggest reasons for it.”
Paul George is a big Baker Mayfield fan: “He has that ‘it’ about him as far as being a leader.”
He also might be picking OU to win it all bc of its great offense and “underrated” defense. pic.twitter.com/uBf1xM3X6e

Mayfield and the Sooners will take on Georgia in the Rose Bowl on January 1. Two more wins and Mayfield will be an all-time legend in the state.
