While C.J. Giles is considered to be very heavy lean towards the University of Washington, his father acknowledges that a number of big time programs would likely be interested in his son. However, none of the schools can contact the Seattle native until the release is granted and processed.
"We'd be open to looking at anyone as soon as we get this release," said the elder Giles. "The problem is that with passing day we lose more and more of our window of opportunity."
"He hasn't pinned down one school," Rainier Beach coach Mike Bethea said. "He would want to look at Duke, Kansas, Georgia Tech, and Arizona if time permits."
The new interest from the Blue Devils isn't falling on deaf ears either.
"They would certainly be one of the teams we would love to look at, but until we get the release our hands are tied. It looks like a good situation and there may be some early playing time there."
