Nashville, TN (Future150) -- With high school seasons winding down across the country and teams starting their playoff runs, AAU season is right around the corner. Over the next few weeks Future150 will be taking a closer look at some players who appear to be peaking at the right time and are seemingly poised for big springs.Today we start with the point guard group. Some of these players may be familiar names, while others are just beginning to take off.

Traci Carter- Life Center Academy (NJ): Carter transferred from Roman Catholic in Philadelphia to Life Center and the move has paid off for him. While Carter has been known for his ability to get to the rim, he has been able to show his ability to run a team. Having an elite big like Trayvon Reed and a scorer like Malik Ellison flanking him, Carter has been able to prove that he is more than capable of playing a traditional PG role.  He will team up with Derrick Jones with We-R-1 on the AAU circuit.

Justin Robinson- St. James (MD): Robinson has been playing at a high level all year and on a high level team like St. James, which will get you noticed. He has good size for a point guard and knows when to run the offense and when to hunt his own shot. He has really come on in the past few months and it appears that his recruitment is on the verge of taking off. He will be handling the ball with Boo Williams and the added exposure and competition of playing on the EYBL circuit will only help him.

David Crisp- Rainier Beach (WA): Crisp recently re-classed to 2015 and the Washington commit is looking to use the extra year to both develop his game and boost his profile nationally. He put on a shooting clinic at the HoopHall Classic in January as well and set his teammates up. Crisp was a bit of a question mark nationally before Springfield, but in a few months we may be looking back and saying that was the springboard for him to be put in the conversation as one of the best lead guards in 2015.

Terrance Phillips- Oak Hill Academy (VA): Phillips is the younger brother of NBA PG Brandon Jennings and it is easy to see some similarities between the two. Phillips is shifty and can always get a piece of the lane. He has grown a couple of inches, making him more attractive to college coaches as well. Running with the Atlanta Xpress again this year should only help to improve his stock as he will be surrounded with all sorts of talent at every position, allowing him to showcase his playmaking ability.

Corey Sanders- Kathleen (FL): Sanders might be one of the most explosive players in the class of 2015, regardless of position. He will team with Dwayne Bacon and the Showtime Ballers again this spring and could be in line to see his stock blow up. His shot has improved and was previously considered streaky. He has turned himself into a complete scorer with good vision and speed, making him incredibly hard to guard.

Nych Smith- White Station (TN): Smith plays off the ball for a loaded White Station team that features the likes of Florida commit Chris Chiozza and Illinois commit Leron Black. This AAU season he should be able to play more of a facilitating role with Team Penny on the EYBL circuit. He is an electric guard who is a bit like Sanders in that he can score it with the best of the lead guards in the country. He’s been averaging around 25 points a game this high school season and could be primed for monster AAU season.

Kevin Dorsey- Paul VI (VA): Dorsey is one of the more steady point guards on this list and is sometimes the unsung hero for an absolutely loaded Paul VI team. The Takeover guard also plays with his high school teammates on the AAU circuit as well and knows how to balance out the scoring and distributing of the ball amongst his teammates. He is quickly climbing up the rankings and making himself known as a high major lead guard. If Team Takeover were to have a big year, Dorsey could be the engine that makes that team go, further boosting his stock.

Noah Blackwell- Woodcreek (CA): Blackwell is a shifty lead guard out of Northern California that has been slept on quite a bit nationally. Standing at 5-foot-11, he doesn’t have great size, but he is very quick. He has a knack for making the right play as well as finishing tough shots around the rim. Blackwell could prove his doubters wrong playing with the Oakland Soldiers this spring.
