Harry Giles now No. 1 on ESPN, Scout rankings

Harry Giles is easily the most polarizing athlete in the basketball class of 2016. In the some of the most recent rankings for the class of 2016, he is now considered the best player in the country.

According to Fay Observer, Giles has now been ranked as the number one player for next year’s class by both ESPN and Scout. The power forward has garnered all sorts of attention this summer as he continues to prove why he is a surefire lottery pick in the 2017 NBA Draft.

Giles has yet to select a school, but he is considering Duke, North Carolina, Kentucky, Wake Forest, and Kansas.

Duke has already made a strong play towards getting Giles after they landed a commitment from Jayson Tatum, the second ranked player in the class.
