The nation’s No. 1 prospect for the super early class of 2016 basketball recruiting class has run into some trouble. Harry Giles who many expect to be named the No. 1 ranking player when the first 2016 rankings are released has injured himself tearing his ACL, MCL, and meniscus.
Giles injured himself in a FIBA World Basketball Championship game against Argentina. The U16 FIBA World Basketball Championships are underway in Paraguay. As of now, no surgery has been scheduled for the young fifteen year old.
Giles is considered by many a freak of nature and the most talented player that college basketball has ever seen. Yes, to some, this kid is better than Andrew Wiggins.
The 6’8″, 205 pound power forward is talented and you cannot argue that. He’s caught the eyes of Kentucky’s John Calipari and our very own Roy Williams, both of whom have made scholarship offers already. Yes, Roy has made an offer to a high school freshman, and we all know that never happens. Giles is that good!
Thus far the Kentucky Wildcats and Tar Heels are the only two schools to offer Giles, but we all know that will change when the 2016 recruiting class becomes more relevant. The 2015 class is just beginning to get going as the 2014 class is beginning to take shape still in its early stages. So you know 2016…is far ahead if Giles is already receiving offers.
