Class of 2016 five-star forward Harry Giles, the number one recruit in the country, suffered a partially torn ACL in Oak Hill Academy’s season opener last night per multiple sources and will miss the entirety of his senior season.
Giles was set to announce his decision in the next couple of weeks, with his personal final four being Kentucky, Duke, Kansas and Wake Forest.
Now, per SNY’s Adam Zagoria, that process may be accelerated.
Source says Harry Giles will 'most likely ' announce tomorrow.

This could mean multiple things.
ACL injuries can be pretty serious, and Giles could want to commit to a program immediately before the prospect of scholarship offers being pulled becomes a possibility. But there’s also the fact that with no playing time left to accumulate, Giles could just want to get the process over and done with so he can focus on his recovery.
That said, stay tuned to Campus Sports for any and all updates on Giles’ decision.
