Harry Giles may be the best college basketball prospect in a long time to play the game. The 6’10 forward is rated as the top overall prospect in the 2016 class and that’s even AFTER he tore his ACL for the second time in the last three years.
Friday, Giles announced where he was going to take his talents for college … and it was no surprise to many that he chose to join the defending national champs:
Needless to say, there are plenty of fans of the Blue Devils who are ecstatic that the rich are getting richer with a talent like Giles. Already, the congratulations are pouring in from all over, including from the top overall recruit in the 2014 class who also chose the Blue Devils, Jahlil Okafor:
Harry Giles to Duke! Congrats lil bro @TheReal_HG3! The best is yet to come.

Okafor is busy in the NBA now as a member of the Philadelphia 76ers after winning the title in his one year at Duke, so you can say his choice has paid off.
