Harry Giles Ultimate Mixtape | Most Versatile Big Man at Duke.. Ever??
Harry Giles ("HG") is a 6'10" man-child from Winston-Salem, NC where he spent most of his high school career at Wesleyan Christian Academy in High Point, NC. At Wesleyan, HG won a state championship alongside teammate and current UNC wing, Theo Pinson, even though HG missed most of the season with a torn left knee. Currently a 225 pound, 18-year-old freshman at Duke University, Giles will likely be the next in line of one-and-done candidates for Mike Krzyzewski. Before committing to Duke, Giles attended Oak Hill Academy but hurt his right knee during the first scrimmage of the season and returned home to finish his high school near family. HG is a super skilled big-man with the frame and athleticism that should separate him in his match-ups, especially towards the end of the ACC season. More than just a basketball players, HG is a great person too; always taking opportunities to help and connect with the youth in our communities. If Giles stays injury free this season, don't be surprised to see him come across Freshman of the Year honors or even mess around with ACC Player of the Year. A lot of time and a lot left to play out, check out what all the hype is about!
