We have been focused on finding, analyzing, scrutinizing and debating about point guards who have a great chance at elevating their recruitment and helping an elite-level team win. Look for point guards like Javan Felix (New Orleans, La./Saint Augustine), Mike Gesell (Sioux City, Neb./South Sioux City), Charles Mann (McDonough, Ga./Union Grove), Jordan Roper (Columbia, S.C./Irmo), Michael Carey (Baytown, Texas/Trent Internationale) and Phil Forte (Flower Mound, Texas/Flower Mound) to find their way onto the war room walls of high-major programs. If teams at the highest level can mine through the evaluation process and find a diamond in the rough, it could have a huge impact on their future.
