The guard position continues to evolve in both the College and NBA levels while seeing point guards with the abilities to score while shooting guards have evolved into players who can manage the offense while showing their ability to shoot from nearly every portion of the hardwood. 

With the 2021-2022 group of shooting guards, many of these top players have the ability to run either the point or shooting guard spot while playing a key role in their team’s success in March Madness and possibly the Final Four this season. 



One of these shooting guards is Ochai Agbaji from the Kansas Jayhawks who leads all shooting guards within the Top 10 College Basketball Shooting Guards in 22 rankings. Agbaji is one of the best shooters in the country while also having the ability to play against any program in the country. Meanwhile the list of top shooting guards also includes the likes of Buddy Boeheim, Johnny Juzang, Jaden Ivey and Taevion Kinsey. 




With that said, here is our list of the Top 10 Best Shooting Guards in College Basketball in 2022.
