Harry Lee Giles III was born in 1998 in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. The big center has one brother and three sisters and is the son of Melissa Addison-Giles and Harry Giles. His father played both collegiate football and basketball at Winston-Salem State University. Giles attended two different high schools. For his first three years, he attended Wesleyan Christian Academy in High Point, North Carolina. He led the basketball team to a 2013 NCISAA 3A state championship as a freshman but missed his sophomore season due to a left knee injury. As a junior (2014-15), Giles earned First Team All-USA honors by USA Today. That summer, Giles won a gold medal as a member of Team USA in the 2015 FIBA Under-19 World Cup in Greece. Before his senior year, Giles transferred to Oak Hill Academy in Virginia but tore the ACL in his right knee during his first scrimmage. Giles then enrolled at Forest Trail Academy to take online courses while rehabbing his knee. After one year at Duke, Giles declared for the 2017 NBA Draft. Giles enjoys getting pedicures and treated 10 dads from the local nonprofit, Center for Fathers and Families, for a day at a spa as part of the Season of Doing Good.
