Elite prospect Harry Giles is getting closer to making a decision. Giles cut down his list of schools, posting his Top 5 on Twitter Monday night. “Top 5 Schools No Order North Carolina Duke Kentucky Kansas Wake Forest” Giles is ranked as the top prospect in the Class of 2016 according to ESPN. Giles talked to SNY.tv about those schools in what was his Top 8 earlier this month. He has since cut Syracuse, Ohio State and UNLV from his list.
This week’s Poster of the Week winner is WE-R1 (Del.) guard Trevon Duval for the insane poster he created during the Under Armour All-American Camp. Duval, who is ranked No. 13 overall in the ESPN 60, came off the high screen on the right wing, darted left to the top of the key and got the second defender off balance with a simple hesitation dribble.
Despite the hot seat under head coach Mike London, the Hoos continue to reel in commitments. Today’s newest addition is WR/DB Hasise Dubois, out of Depaul Catholic High School in Wayne, NJ. Dubois had offers from Boston College, Wake Forest, Syracuse and Pitt. And Ohio State.
Syracuse picked up its second commitment in the Class of 2017 on Monday, beating out another Northeast Power-5 school. Bennett (Buffalo, N.Y.) High School prospect Isaiah McDuffie said he chose the Orange over offers from Penn State, UConn, Washington State and Buffalo during a phone interview Monday afternoon. The 6-foot-1, 190-pound junior is being recruited as an outside linebacker or safety depending on how his body develops over the next two years.
