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.

. 486. Jeremy Fears. . Jeremy Fears. 12. player. 6'2 185 lbs. Jeremy Fears. Sophomore

Fears will be a sophomore next season after being a top 40 recruit in 2023. He only appeared in twelve games last season in a crowded Michigan State backcourt. With Tyson Walker no longer having eligibility remaining and AJ Hoggard transferring to Vanderbilt, it creates an opportunity for Fears to have a significant role for the Spartans next season.

Fears ranks here on this list due to his projected leap as a high four-star recruit. I was intrigued to rank him higher but will temper expectations and slide him in here just outside the top ten.
