Considered the No. 1 recruit in the 2016 high school class by ESPN, Harry Giles is looking to prove that his potential has not been diminished by an injury-filled past. The talent that put him on so many schools’ radars could outweigh a ledger that includes ACL tears on both legs and a left-knee procedure all in the past four years.
Despite getting short playing time at Duke, Giles crashed the boards for 13.3 rebounds per 40 minutes, while 41 percent of those came on the offensive glass. And while his rebounding is his calling card at the moment, he projects to be a solid defender that can handle fours and fives.
