Preseason power rankings - Point guards

Who is the best point guard in the state? It is a debate worth discussing as the season is right around the corner. The Peach State has a handful of talented floor generals. We ranked the top five players at the position regardless of class. The power rankings will be updated as the season progresses and we see how the players perform.

  1. Mfon Udofia (pictured), Miller Grove, Jr. – Tough as a bull, quick as a jet and a fiery competitive spirit, Udofia is primed for a big season this year. He has improved his young team year in and year out. This year is his most important to date. Udofia has a lot of the same characteristics as Javaris Crittenton.
  2. Lorenzo Brown, Centennial, Jr. – After a dynamic second semester last year as a sophomore and a trip to the state title game, Brown is back for more this season. He's a little bigger, a little hungrier and a little more focused for this season. Brown starts the year at the top of our point guard power rankings. And the second player on the list is very close behind.
  3. Dustin Ware, North Cobb Christian, Sr. – You haven't seen him probably. And you are truly missing out. One of the best pure leaders in the Southeast, Ware is every bit the high-major player and a winner to boot. He may play in
  4. Andre Young, Deerfield-Windsor, Sr. – When it comes to winning big games and raising the level of play of his teammates, few do a better job at it than Young. He's one of the best players in the state that most Georgians haven't seen in person.
  5. Cashmere Wright, Urban Christian, Sr. – Need buckets? Wright is one of the elite scorers in the state. He'll average 40 points a game this year at the Savannah private school before heading off to Cincinnati.
