RB Jarvis Giles Profile

4-star running back Jarvis Giles is planning a summer visit tour that should include a stop in Clemson, S.C.

"I don't have my summer visits set yet," he told CUTigers.com in a recent interview. "The only one I have set right now is Tennessee. I am coming to Clemson, but I am not sure when. I would also like to visit Nebraska, but that is pretty far away. I might also look to see Louisville and Ole Miss."

A recent report had Giles listing Tennessee as his current leader. Is that still the case today?

When asked that very question, Giles responded, "No, I like Tennessee and everything, but I am open to everyone right now."

Clemson assistant coach Chris Rumph has visited Gaither High (Tampa) two times in the past month to check on the star running back.

"It was cool," he said. "I really like his personality. He just said we want you to come up and see everything for yourself. He thinks I will like it. He said Clemson needs me."

Previously Giles had been concerned about the depth chart at Clemson, but he now feels much better.

"He straightened me out on the depth chart. He explained it to me and I feel much better. I had just looked at the running backs they were bringing in, but I didn't realize they had two leaving," said Giles.

Don't expect a decision from the prize recruit for a while.

"First I am going to take some unofficial visits this summer," he said. "Then I will plan some official visits. Then I will be ready to make a decision."

One thing may speed up the commitment a little.

"I am going to try to enroll early so I won't wait too long," said Giles.

Which teams are recruiting Giles the hardest right now?

"It is pretty much Nebraska, Ole Miss, Louisville, Tennessee and Clemson. I am getting a feel for all of their coaches. They all have a shot because they are talking with me a good bit," replied 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.
