Updated: My Top 5 Shooting guard in College Ball this season

Top 5 Shooting Guards in the College BBall going to this season

1. Gary Harris (Michigan St) - One of best player in Big ten maybe #1 on some people list. At 6-4 Harris will go out every time he on the court don't matter either offense or defense bad thing some had some injuries last season. What make him one on my list have complete package for college 2 guard cause Harris score anywhere on court either with sweet jump shot or going to the rack but need to be aggressive on offense more score and to be playmaker. He still little work on defensive but overall he will do job.

2. Wayne Selden (Kansas) - Big time freshman out of Kansas even know Wayne is in Andrew Wiggins shadow in Jayhawk town to me it is good thing he can relax and take some pressure off Andrew scoring during the game he can be more playmaker on offense too cause kind of Dwayne Wade game. Offensively Selden like to the rack either dunk, lay-up or get a foul line. Defensively he got 6-10 wingspan got potential create havoc on defense.

3. James Young (Kentucky) - Another big time freshman in big blue country. Lefty can shoot the ball cause he has sweet shoot I like his mechanic too and pure scorer probably in his freshman class remind of Athletic version of Michael Redd. Young don't have to score much this season because of Wildcats got 6 others good freshmen on the team but most likely to be big x-factor on the team the reason why cause of offense ability.

4. Russ Smith (Louisville) - Russ is under size two guard at 5-11 he can shoot and fill it up too he's one of reason why that Louisville for there successful running season & National title run last season. Russ Smith one of quickest player in the country cause top elite speed. What I like Russ is that very aggressive going to the basket in alert rate, very tough and never back down from anyone.

5. Jordan McRae (Tennessee) - The most improve & underrated player in the country to me. Jordan have a ball last season cause his game slowly come along together the impressive thing he did in the 4 stretch game Jordan average 28 points and the Vols went 4-1 during that stretch. He's pretty solid scorer he still need work jumper and to be little unselfish make plays for other teammates and defense he got potential cause of length but have some room to improve on the other end.

Honorable Mention: Sean Kilpatrick, Rasheed Sulaimon, Tyler Haws, P.J. Hairston & Jordan Adams

This list was tough put together but hopefully in next few days put the small forward list together

I also think Matt Jones is

I also think Matt Jones is going to put up great numbers under Coach K. He has an amazing stroke and will get plenty of open looks.

I would like to know this as well.

To me it looks like it is more based on NBA potential.

It's definitely based upon NBA potential. Otherwise, Tyler Haws would be in the top 3.

if its...

If it's more pro then Rasheed Sulaimon should be higher than Russ Smith. Only time Russ will be able to play 2 is during college he is way too small to play it in the pros. Also based on either pro potential or college production PJ hairston (barring any suspension) should definitely be higher at least 4th maybe even higher.

everyone is entitled to their

everyone is entitled to their own views on this site, i understand, but dude how can you rate guys who havent even played a game in college and guys like gary who did have a sold freshman season but nothing great above proven guys. This is a list for college's best you say? Well lets not rate guys on hype like the media and analysists do all the time. Russ smith, jordan mcrae are deserving of your top 5. I also think haws and jerian grant should be there as well. pJ Hairston was on another level ahead of gary harris. He was the tar heel's best player this past year. Your pg list was just like this. I see you admitted this list is based on nba potential so i understand your rankings are simply based on potential not who actually dominated college last year.
Now that I see this list cant wait for you to have wiggins and parker on you top small forward lists above guys who have actually played college ball.

I like the list. Good post.

I don't think it's perfect, but everyone can agree this is a bit of a craps shoot at this point anyway. I think, at the very least, your list named the guards that I think have a chance of being top at their position.

For college play, I think Tyler Haws is going to surprise people. He averaged almost 22 ppg last year despite having been away from the game for over two years prior. He's an elite shooter w/very good handles and enough athleticism to dominate at the college level. However, he will only be a role player at the next level.

I think you have him pegged just right as a pro prospect (6-10 range at the position). However, as a college player I think he'll be in the top 3 next year for sure.

I applaud the attempt. I

I applaud the attempt. I think that we need to be weary of putting freshman on that list (especially above proven college players such as Haws, Hairston, Saulimon etc.) Remember everyone's obsession with Paul Harris?
