New York, NY (Future150) -- It's the most wonderful time of the year and the NCAA tournament is upon us. With that in mind, Future150 takes a look at several of our alumni who could make a lasting imprint on this year's big dance:

Skal Labissiere, PF, Kentucky Wildcats: The big man appears to be putting it together after a slow start to the season. The Wildcats are becoming a trendy pick to make a deep run this year, and Labissiere's defense has a lot to do with it. If he can keep this level of play up, Kentucky becomes all the more dangerous. 

Kyle Kuzma, SF, Utah Utes: Kuzma is argubaly the Utes' second most dangerous offensive weapon next to Poetl, and will need to play at a high level if they are going to make the sweet sixteen. His versatility makes him a hard player to account for, especially when a team only has two days to prepare. Kuzma could shine this first weekend and even further. 

Justin Jackson, SF, North Carolina Tar Heels: Jackson is a key cog to the talented Tar Heels and he will need to keep playing well if they are going to win the whole thing. While his 12 points and 4 rebounds a game are impressive, if he can take his game to another level,, the Tar Heels could be the favorites after this weekend. 

Rasheed Sulimon, SG, Maryland Terrapins: One of the elderstatesmen on this list, Sulimon has been a calming force for the Terps. They will need his leadership and defense if they want to get past Cal. Sulimon also has a habit of playing his best when the lights are brightest, and making the final four could be a fitting final chapter in what has been a roller coaster career. 

Sheldon McClellan, SG, Miami Hurricanes: Miami is insanely dangerous because of their experience. McClellan has been averaging close to 16 points this season, and should continue to do so in the tournament as well. 

Keep an eye out, as later today, Future150 breaks down five alumni who could have a serious imprint on next year's tournament.
