Trevor George is accustomed to finishing first.
He helped his Princeton (Ind.) High School basketball team to an undefeated season and an Indiana state championship as a senior.
He helped his Wabash Valley College team to a district championship and a spot in the NJCAA (National Junior College Athletic Association) national tournament.
Now he's the first signee in the Indiana University East men's basketball program's 2011 recruiting class.
IU East coach Mark Hester announced the signing April 14.
George is a 6-3 forward.
"He has been a winner everywhere he's been," Hester said. "He fits our system, and he also brings an element of physicality that we needed to add."
George averaged 3.0 points and 3.0 rebounds per game to help Wabash Valley to a 29-7 record this past season.
The Warriors advanced to the NJCAA Division I national tournament.
George averaged 16.0 points, 8.0 rebounds and 4.0 assists per game during his senior year of high school to help Princeton to a 28-0 record and an Indiana Class 3A state championship.
George liked what he saw when he visited the IU East campus and saw the Red Wolves' free-flowing, unselfish style of play.
"Their system interested me a lot," he said. "I feel like I can attack the rim and get to the basket and that my defense is good and I can play well with my teammates.
"As long as we win, I'm glad."
Trevor is the son of William George and Jan Ayers.
He plans to major in law enforcement or physical therapy.
IU East is an NAIA program. The Red Wolves are coming off of a 23-10 season. IU East won a share of the Kentucky Intercollegiate Athletic Conference regular season championship and advanced to the NAIA Division II Men's Basketball National Championship for the first time.
