CHARLESTON, S.C. — With the 2017-18 season winding down, the vast majority of teams have turned their focus to the upcoming 2018-19 campaign.

The end of the season brings forth an influx of coaching changes and player transfers all across the country. Some have said the number of players transferring has been a problem over the last few years, with more and more players choosing to transfer with each passing year.

When it comes to sophomore guards in the NCAA, the list of talented players goes on and on. With so many players, it was nearly impossible to cut the list down to just 10 players without leaving star-calibre players off the list.

Much like we did last season, we have broken down each class into guards and forwards. Then, the list of guards and forwards were broken down even further into multiple parts, as there was too much talent to do it any other way.

Each will have 10 sophomore guards who will become household names in 2016-17, along with five others to keep a flag on as the season progresses.
