Harry Giles returns: latest mixtape of incredible junior big man


After his freshman season at Wesleyan Christian Academy (N.C) in 2013, word around the U.S. was that Harry Giles was legitimately in the conversation as the nation's most talented prospect in the class of 2016.

However, after tearing his ACL, MCL & meniscus while playing for the United States in the FIBA Americas U16 Championships in Uruguay last summer, he had to put his bright career on hold during an intense rehabilitation process over the past year. 

Since returning from the injury late this summer, he has proven that he is back and better than ever. Throughout the Nike EYBL circuit and into fall workouts, the 6-10, 210-pound power forward has not only regained his form, but has improved on his overall skill set.

A highly skilled forward, Giles has the capability of playing both on the low block as well as the perimeter. He has excellent footwork, deft touch on his jump shot, and impressive ball skills for a player of his size. 

Duke, Kansas, Kentucky and North Carolina are just a few of the prominent programs who have already extended scholarship offers, and the battle for his services will surely heat up over the coming months.

It's scary to think of how good of a junior season he may have. If his latest mixtape is any indication, it looks like he is once again in the conversation as the most talented young player in the country.
