Giles Commits to Texas Tech
Giles (6-0, 170,) who threw for over 3,000 yards and rushed for another 1,100 with 43 total touchdowns in 2013, announced his commitment on Twitter, "IT OFFICIAL!! I HAVE COMMIT TO TEXAS TECH UNIVERSITY!!! #GUNSUP!!!"
He chose the Red Raiders over offers from Colorado, Fresno State, Houston, Indiana, Maryland, Missouri and North Texas.
Giles told Scout.com's Ahmad Vital recently that Texas Tech visited a couple days ago, explained they wanted him as a receiver and offered him a scholarship. The Red Raiders apparently made an impression.
"The Texas Tech coaches (one of which was assistant – running backs coach Mike Jinks) came by practice. They like the way I am a leader on and off the field," Giles told Vital. "They (and most other staffs as well) say I can play the inside or outside receiver spot. They want me to be able to make plays."
