Harry Giles Transfers To Oak Hill For Senior Season

Jul 29, 2015 4:10 PM

Harry Giles will transfer to Oak Hill for his senior season.

“At this point I just really want to lock in on school and basketball at the highest level,” Giles told USA TODAY High School Sports. “I feel like going to Oak Hill it’ll give me the chance to do both. I won’t have anything to do but be a better student and a better player.”

Giles is considered the top player in the incoming college class of 2016.

“It was a really tough decision to leave my teammates and Coach Keith (Gatlin), that’s my guy that I’ve been rocking with since I got here,” said Giles, who recently cut his list of schools down to North Carolina, Kentucky, Wake Forest, Kansas and Duke. “But, at the end of the day, I’ve got to do what I feel is best for me to develop on and off the court.”
