Makur relocated to the United States in 2015, and started his freshman in West Hills, Los Angeles at Chaminade College Preparatory Schools. He had to live away from his family for quite some time. As a freshman, Makur scored an average of 9.5 points, 8.2 rebounds, and 2.5 blocks per game. He later transferred to The Tech Academy in 2016, a prep school in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario where he played basketball for Prolific Prep North.

Makur was attracted to the program by his cousins Than Maker and Matur Maker who also played basketball. In addition, his cousins brought him under the supervision of Ed Smith a mentor, who had ushered them during their own basketball profession. Makur joined the basketball group with Matur where he played in the National Preparatory Association.

In the following year, The Tech Academy closed and as a result, Makur had to home school. He encountered a foot injury that sidelined him for the 2017 – 2018 season.
