Despite a knee injury that will cost him his sophomore season, Wesleyan's Harry Giles still has plenty of fans in the scouting community.
In Scout.com's ranking of all high school basketball recruits (regardless of year in school), Giles came in at No. 2 overall, only behind Chicago's Jahlil Okafor.
But Giles wasn't the only Wesleyan player to make the list, which the website called the "Ultimate 100." Teammate Theo Pinson, a North Carolina commit, checked in at No. 59.
Giles, the MaxPreps.com Freshman of the Year a season ago, averaged 12.5 points and 9.5 rebounds last year. He was the PACIS co-player of the year and an NCISAA all-state selection. He is being recruited by a long list of schools already, including Kentucky, North Carolina and Duke.

The Trojans won the NCISAA Class 3-A state title in February.
