RB Jarvis Giles Profile

6-0, 180 pound running back prospect Jarvis Giles would like to take several visits this summer.

"I am probably going to visit Tennessee," he told CUTigers.com in a recent interview. "It will probably be around June. I am thinking about trying to get up to Nebraska as well. That is a long ways so I need to talk to my family."

Will Clemson get a visit this summer?

"I am thinking about it," Giles said. "I looked at their roster and they have a bunch of good running backs coming in. When I see that I said I may not want to go to a school that is so populated with running backs. I still like them, but I am concerned about their depth chart."

The top running back has taken it easy the last few weeks.

"I didn't go anywhere this weekend. The last visit I took was to see the Florida practice," said Giles.

A decision will likely come before his senior season begins.

"I actually want to get it done before the season starts. When I come back to school from the summer I will have my decision made," said Giles.

What will be the most important factors when the 4-star running back makes his selection?

"I want to feel like I am not too far from home," he said. "I want to be comfortable with the school. I want to be comfortable with the coaches. I don't want to go somewhere that I will feel homesick. I will look at the academics. I want to go to school where they are tops in my major or at least know for that program."

The Florida standout already knows his major?

"Right now I want to major in surgical technology. That is just something I want to do," said Giles.

One of the state's top running back prospects, Giles was a workhorse in 2007, carrying the ball 236 times for 1,378 yards and 19 touchdowns. He was also the team's leading receiver, with just three catches for 59 yards.
