Giles Visits Miami, CAA School Next

C.J. Giles has four official visits scheduled and he's already completed one of them. The Seattle Rotary standout hits the trail again this weekend.

Coming off a strong summer, C.J. Giles is starting to put the finishing touches on his college list. As it stands, he's got Miami, Old Dominion, Arizona and Kansas in the mix. Oregon, Southern Cal and Washington were in the hunt, but Giles said they've been eliminated.

However, he thinks USC coach Henry Bibby is still likely to do an in-home presentation with him.

Last weekend, Giles visited the Miami Hurricanes.

"I didn't even know it was a private institute," Giles said. "I really need a private school. It's a small school with small classes. I need that to focus a lot more."

Miami's pitch to Giles is a simple one: playing time. "They're saying that they really need a four. I really liked the coaching staff and the players."

This weekend, he'll visit Old Dominion. The Monarchs have a coach on their staff that once coached him back in Washington and while Giles is considering them, it would be a significant upset if they were to land him.

Kansas and Arizona also have visits scheduled for later in September and October. His fifth visit is currently open and he's looking around. Recently, North Carolina came up in a conversation about him but Giles himself has never spoken to anyone from the staff. He did leave open the possibility that his father might have, but the contact with the player has been non-existent.
