Giles Bleeds Garnet and Black
Giles, a high 4-star prospect in Scout.com's rankings, selected South Carolina head-to-head over Tennessee at a 12 p.m. news conference at his school.
GamecockAnthem.com caught up with Gaither head football coach Mark Kantor, and he raved about Giles' ability on the football field, saying he is the complete package at the running back position.
"He's been a tremendous running back for us. He's rushed for almost 4,000 yards. He has speed, quickness, and athleticism. But he also has a little power behind him. He can run between the tackles. He's very instinctive," said Kantor. "He's a great person to be around. He works hard and is committed to being the best he can be. You don't get to coach guys like him every year. He's a special player."
Kantor believes that once Giles adjusts to the college level, he will be a tremendous player and a difference maker at South Carolina throughout his college career.
"I think he'll be really good once he gets in and learns their system. They're going to put him on a weight plan and a meal plan. I see him anywhere between 190 and 195," he said. "He'll keep his explosiveness and be able to run downhill. I think he'll be an outstanding player in the Southeastern Conference."
