Ranking every Big Ten point guard for the 2024-25 season: Does Ace Baldwin take the top spot?

With an abundance of new faces in the Big Ten due to the transfer portal and conference realignment, the conference will look as unique as ever, and there is certainly no shortage of star power at the ball handler position.

Boswell returns to his hometown of Champaign to play for Brad Underwood’s Fighting Illini. He spent two seasons at Arizona after being a five-star recruit in 2022. He averaged 9.6 points, 3.6 assists, and 1.4 steals per game for the 27-9 Wildcats last season.

Boswell thrives with the ball in his hands, he does not turn the ball over often, and he shot 38.2% from three at his time in Tucson. He will be given the keys to the Illinois offense next season, and I expect him to flourish in Underwood’s system.
