The Syracuse Orange will be adding a bunch of players to their team in the 2013-14 college basketball season, but which freshman will have the biggest impact?

Joining the team will be one five-star, three four-stars and one three-star, according to ESPN. As you can see, Syracuse will be adding a bunch of talent to the team in the 2013-14 season.

However, it will have to replace its point guard in Michael Carter-Williams. Carter-Williams was arguably the most important player on the team last season. He put up 11.9 points per game, 4.9 rebounds per game and 7.3 assists per game. Him leaving is a big loss for the Orange, but luckily a very talented point guard will be coming in.

That point guard will be five-star Tyler Ennis and he will have the biggest impact on the team. Ennis is ranked No. 20 in the class of 2013, according to ESPN. He is the highest rated recruit joining the team and he will have the tough task of replacing Carter-Williams.

Other freshmen could easily step up and could be even better than Ennis in the upcoming season, but the point guard position is arguably the most important one on the court.

Syracuse had a great PG last season and it made it all of the way to the Final Four. If Ennis can have a positive impact and take over as the field general right away, then the Orange very well could go on a deep run in the 2014 NCAA Tournament. If not, who knows how the Orange will fair.

Regardless, Ennis will have the biggest impact on the team and I am sure Syracuse fans are hoping for that impact to be a positive one.
