Harry Giles, Thon Maker headline 247Sports 2016 basketball recruit rankings

Despite suffering a significant knee injury this summer playing for the USA 16U National Team, Harry Giles leads the way in the initial 247Sports 2016 ranking. One of the hotter names on the circuit since last year, Giles is an athletic 6-8 combo forward with the likes of Duke, Kentucky and North Carolina pursuing him. Sudanese 7-footer Thon Maker is right behind Giles and carries a grade of 100 as does Giles. Super skilled wing Jayson Tatum is at No. 3. (247 Sports)
