Harry Giles will visit for Big Blue Madness

(Photo: Matt Scott, 247Sports)

Big Blue Madness is always a big recruiting event, but we’re hearing that UK is pulling out all the stops this year, and with good reason. According to Jon Rothstein, Harry Giles, the number one player in a loaded 2016 class, will take his official visit to Kentucky on October 16, the day of Big Blue Madness. He will also visit Wake Forest on September 19, North Carolina on September 25, Kansas on October 10, and Duke on October 31. This will be Giles’ second trip to Big Blue Madness after attending in 2013.

While Duke is considered the heavy favorite for the 6’10” power forward, getting him on campus for Big Blue Madness is huge; there’s no event that showcases the mania of Kentucky basketball better. A little wow factor can’t hurt, right?

Drake’s great and everything, but is there any way to get the floor turned into a giant screen again?

      Because I knew you “UK fans since 2009” would be like “YEAH MAN WE’RE GOING TO GET HIM” No you’re not.

      Dukie where did you come up with this “UK fans since 2009” bologna? Almost every UK fan I know has been a fan since birth. Its the way were raised. Thanks for visiting.

      Dookie, come back and talk when your school has demonstrated sustained excellence and domination through seven decades like UK. Kentucky has won championships under FIVE different head coaches, while Dook has won all 5 of theirs under one man. Ever notice what happened to pretenders like IU and UCLA after their one good coach retired? Although he defies aging and is probably a vampire, Kzyskjghekrhski can’t coach forever.

      Better yet, were you even a UK fan for half of those? Didn’t think so. Bandwagon nation = UK.

      Every Duke fan I’VE ever met has been a bandwagon fan. They also like the Lakers, Yankees, etc. Nice try again. I think you just exposed yourself. 😀

      Um, I don’t see one post on here saying anything close to “YEAH MAN WE’RE GOING TO GET HIM”…. just sayin’.

      8-5

      Face it, Duke is a great program. UK however, is even better. UNC is better than Duke too, most would agree.

      Thanks for visiting!

      (Does anyone know of a Duke site? Just kidding — nobody around here cares)

    I’m sorry for being an idiot Big Blue Nation. In all honesty I’m just a little jealous of your fan base and how awesome it is. I’ll leave you guys alone and stop always getting so butt hurt and defensive.

      @ Brian
      Yes you’re correct
      Myself (DukeCrazie)=Cats paw
      I’m a low down dirty snitch but I do not freebase.

    The last visit being Duke is decidedly not a good thing.

      He’s going to Duke. All the experts believe it.

      Like Nerlens to Georgetown, Randle to Texas, Twins to Maryland, Murray to Oregon, Jaylen Brown to UCLA or Kentucky, Malik Newman to Kentucky, Teague to Louisville, Blakeney to Kentucky, Diallo to St. Johns, Wiggins to Florida State, Luke Kennard to Kentucky, Maverick Rowan to Louisville, Jabari Parker to Michigan State…….

      My sources say that Giles has been a lock for Dook for quite a while…

    Personally, I think the alumni game is a better recruiting vehicle, but I’m too lazy to go into all my reasons for that opinion right now…

    Dukecrazie. How old are you? Just wondering? Do you have a duke site? What a tool. Only someone who is scared of another program would troll on another site. I know I wouldn’t look at a duke site. Hell I don’t even know of one. What an idiot
