There are many point guards in the 2014 college basketball recruiting class who will make an impact next season, but these are the five who could shift the national title landscape. Most of the blue blood programs are represented; however, we will also look at a couple guards who could shake things up in an unconventional conference. Keep in mind that this rates each floor general based on how they will do in college, and not on potential.

Tyler Ulis' name will be familiar to any Chicago readers of mine, and I was lucky enough to see him play at the McDonald's All American game. The cheers he received at the United Center were quite cool to witness, but I wonder if he will get the same attention if the Wildcats go on a national title run. The point guard must be pleased that John Calipari recently signed a contract extension.

It is rare that I write about the Texas A&M Aggies when it comes to basketball recruiting, but here we are. Alex Robinson is a 6-foot-1, 175 pound point guard out of Timberview High School (TX), and his family is probably quite pleased that they do not have to travel far to see him play. Expect him to fill out more at the college level; then we could be looking at an elite playmaker for the Aggies.

My regular readers probably know how highly I think of Emmanuel Mudiay, but he still makes this list without a doubt. Larry Brown does not seem to be nibbling at the NBA coaching offers that have been floated out there, which makes me quite pleased for the point guard out of Prime Prep (TX).

Joel Berry II may not see a whole lot of the floor next season under Marcus Paige; that is not a bad point guard to apprentice under though, and the UNC Tar Heels should be even better as a result. Roy Williams is probably quite ready to get this summer over with, because Rashad McCants has not made it a comfortable time down in Chapel Hill the last couple of weeks.

Tyus Jones is by far my favorite point guard in this class, and he will show why next season with the Duke Blue Devils. The ACC should be a wide open fight next season, but Jones and his high school buddy Jahlil Okafor should make it one to remember. Don't say I didn't warn you.

FAIL!
