Giles Ready to Report to Texas Tech

RaiderPower.com caught up with Texas Tech 2015 signee Jonathan Giles who is set to report to Lubbock in a matter of days.

It has been a long time dream for Texas Tech signee Jonathan Giles to suit up in red and black and now he will officially be a Red Raider in less than a week.

Giles, along with many of the other 2015 signees will report to campus on Monday.

“I’m very excited. I’m ready to be around my new teammates, coaching staff, and I’m just excited to be in the city of Lubbock itself,” Giles said.

Between signing day and now Giles said he has been working out and working with his high school coach on getting ready to play inside receiver at the college level. More recently, he said he has been getting things ready for graduation and his move to the Hub City.

“It feels good to graduate,” Giles said. “That is very big for me and my family, so I’m very excited.”


Once he gets to Lubbock, Giles will be moving in with fellow signees D’Vonta Hinton, Furquan Shorts, and Corey Dauphine. He said he is excited to live with guys he knows well because it will help his transition.

“I’m looking forward to building a bond with my future teammates,” Giles said.

Giles, who threw for almost 2,200 yards, 17 touchdowns and rushed for another 750 and 15 scores last fall for Elkins, has set the bar high for himself and said that when he arrives on campus everyone can expect “a humble, hardworking, dedicated young man who desires to be great whether in the classroom or on the field.”

As for the classroom, Giles plans to major in communications and is confident about minoring in athletic coaching because he wants to coach later on in his life.

Although, Giles said he is just looking forward to getting football ready again because he has been “missing football for awhile now.”

Giles wanted to add a little shout out to the fans:

“Guns Up, and I can’t wait to get up there and play and be around y'all, lets get ready to go to work.”
