New York, NY (Future150) -- With the NCAA tournament starting this week, we predict five of our camp alums who could make a huge impact this time next season. Granted, they will be at the mercy of the selection committee, but for this exercise, we're assuming these teams will be in the tournament field. 

De'Aaron Fox, PG, Kentucky Wildcats: He may only be a freshman next year, but he also may be the best point guard prospect that Calipari has had since John Wall. With great size, speed, and vision, Fox could have the same type of impact in what may be his only college season. 

Carsen Edwards, PG, Purdue Boilermakers: Edwards is a flat out winner, something that will endear him to both Matt Painter and the Purdue fan base. He has taken his game to another level this year, and appears poised to have a big freshman campaign. Rapheal Davis graduates this year, and while those minutes certainly aren't promised to him, we're confident that Edwards will step into an important role for a Boilermaker program that will welcome his play making abilites. 

Quinndary Weatherspoon, SG, MIssissppi State Bulldogs: Weatherspoon was arguably MSU's top player as a freshman this season and has begun to ping the NBA radar thanks to his scoring ability. The talent around him will get upgraded in a serious way next season thanks to a stellar recruiting class. If Weatherspoon takes another jump forward next year, we could be talking about him as a lottery pick and one of the top stars in the NCAA tournament. 

Dwayne Bacon, SG/SF, Florida State Seminoles: Bacon is half of the highest scoring freshman duo in the ACC in quite some time. While the Seminoles were on the wrong side of the bubble this year, it appears next year won't be a repeat performance. He is one of the most versatile scorers in the country, and if the Noles are going to make noise, it's more than likely that Bacon will be in the middle of it. 

Shake Milton, SG/PG, SMU Mustangs: There's a good chance that Milton would have made the list for this season if SMU were actually eligible for the tournament. Averaging 10.5 points, 3 boards, and 2.7 assists while playing alongside Nic Moore is very impressive, and Milton will be counted on to take the reins of the program next season. SMU has a bright future with him at the helm.
