Quick Take: Wallace is the highest rated lead guard prospect still available at No. 14 at his position. An intriguing prospect, Wallace has impressive physical attributes, as he stands 6-foot-4 and is blessed with a long, wiry frame. Wallace is a talented passer that sees the floor well and has a terrific feel for the game.

Recruiting: Fresno State, California, Colorado, Oregon, San Diego State, UNLV

Size: 6-0/160 |
Quick Take: An ultra talented combo guard, Jackson is ranked No. 16 at the point guard spot, but it's long be an issue trying to figure out who is targeting Jackson and among his list of suitors. There's no question about his talent, but trying to figure out his recruitment and who is involved is proving to be a difficult task.

Recruiting: N/A

Size: 6-1/170 |
Quick Take: An intriguing combo guard, Hairston had a strong showing at NBA Camp against the nation's best and has long been a debated prospect with Cade Lemcke's East Coast Fusion squad. He's a talented passer that plays well in an uptempo environment, but he's also a guy that can put up points.

Committed: Colorado, Marshall and Towson

Size: 6-4/175 |
Quick Take: One of the more talented guards left on the board, Lee checks in at No. 19 on the point guard list. He's always a threat to score, but he's more than capable of running the show and setting up his teams offense. He's more of a true combo than a true lead guard, but certainly a guy that could get some things done at the high major level.

Recruiting: Eastern Michigan, Central Florida

Size: 6-1/190 |
Quick Take: Rated as the No. 21 point guard in the 2012 class, Canty is a talent and one that knows how to get his teammates involved, but also mix in some scoring. He always appears to be in attack mode and is one that doesn't back down from a challenge.

Recruiting: Seton Hall, Marshall, Miami, Penn State, Nebraska, San Diego State

Other Availables: Jevon Thomas, Daiquan Walker, Olivier Hanlan, Adonis Filer, C.J. Ford
