After an immensely successful collegiate career, George Pickens has taken the NFL by storm. The 23-year-old Steelers wide receiver is all people can talk about today. To be more specific, Pickens’s dating life is the real talk of the town.

Who Is George Pickens Dating In 2024?

The straightforward answer to this question would be a “No.” The wide receiver isn’t dating anyone publicly as of now.

Drafted by the NFL in 2022, Pickens is still single because he is busy with his career
Wide receiver in action.

Pickens has just started his playing days, so he might be thinking that it’s not the right time to get into a relationship. Now, on one hand, we think he does not have a partner because he does not want to be distracted. However, the secrecy is quite concerning. On the other hand, it is also possible that he could be hiding his girlfriend from the world.

As for his past affair, well, the athlete didn’t have a girlfriend before as well.

Pickens’s Father Was An Athlete But He Isn’t Who You Think He Is

Contrary to popular belief, the Steelers rookie isn’t the son of the former Bengals wide receiver, Carl McNally Pickens. We know, the confusion is a bit too much to handle. But rest assured, the two of them are far from even being related to one another – the “fact” was nothing but a big hokum.

So, who is, in fact, George’s father? It’s George Pickens Sr.; this explains why his full name is George Makik Jr. As mentioned, his dad was once an athlete. Pickens Sr. had a successful collegiate basketball career, playing for Phillips Academy Birmingham. Sadly, the man did not chase a career in basketball further. At present, he is a proud owner of Cascade Auto Details, a car wash company.

Although now divorced, George Sr. and his partner, Dee Humes gave their son a loving home to grow up in while younger. Their son is the apple of their eyes. Despite the separation, the couple continue to be present for their kid and cheer him on!

George’s Brother Is Also A Fatherly Figure In His Life

Chris Humes is the eldest brother of the 22-year-old Steelers athlete. He was born on 31st July 1994 and the two siblings share an age gap of 7 years.

Now, keeping his relationship with his father aside, George has a fairly healthy bond with his big bro. As a matter of fact, he’s thanked Chris for helping him grow into the man that he is today.

To add, his sibling has helped him “in the whole game of football”. He’s also encouraged him and was “super, super tough”, to quote Pickens. Having a big brother with a huge age gap sure helped him get a grasp of the game early on in life.

Interestingly enough, the footballer’s brother was once a footballer too. After a successful collegiate career at Arkansas State, he played defensive back with the Oakland Riders for a season.

A Brief Summary Of The Young Wide Receiver’s Career

As you can guess, the single/handsome footballer began playing in high school; he was an asset to the team at Hoover High School based in Hoover, Alabama. Following this, he initially committed to playing at Auburn University, until he moved on to the University of Georgia.

Furthermore, his time in Georgia was shortened due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. In due course, he was selected by the Pittsburgh Steelers during the second round of their 2022 NFL draft. Since then, the young athlete has been working hard to help the team foster in the big leagues.
