Harry Giles was the top recruit in the class of 2016 and it should come as no surprise at this point that Duke is heavily favored to win the ACC and go far in the NCAA Tournament. The Blue Devils return veterans Amile Jefferson, Grayson Allen and Matt Jones as well as bring in the top recruiting class in 2016.
The prize of the class was No. 1 recruit Harry Giles who is a super athletic big that Duke has lacked in recent years. However, he suffered an ACL tear in his senior season of high school so he hasn’t played basketball competitively for almost a year.

I think it’s safe to say that Giles is going to be just fine and he looks the lottery pick everyone expects him to be in 2017.
