Throughout most drafts in the NBA, the top 1-6 contain mostly forwards and shooting guards, while the point guards fall behind. However, a new class of guards are yet to join the NCAA, and have a fair chance of making the NBA.
Tyus Jones (Duke commit) is ranked 4th on the ESPN 100 rankings for the class of 2014. Jones has proved to everyone that guards sure can dominate games. Also, his ability to get to the basket and shoot NBA threes already has given him a chance to make the league, and spread his name out.
Tyler Ulis (Kentucky commit) has reestablished the presence of small point guards. Standing 5’9″, Ulis has proven that size doesn’t matter, and that he too can dominate the game. Playing for Calipari’s team requires a lot of skill, unselfishness, and hard-work, and Ulis has yet again shown that he belongs in the NCAA, and can possibly spring his way up to the NBA.
Surely, there are more future phenoms of this position yet to come. There are many outstanding guards who have a great chance of making it to the NBA.
