Morning Rumble: Harry Giles cuts his list to five, Kris Dunn versus Arizona?

Today in the Morning Rumble, Harry Giles cuts his list, Providence could play Arizona, and Randy Edsall makes a huge mistake on social media.

The number one overall recruit in the 2016 recruiting class, Harry Giles, cut his college list to five schools on Monday night. Three home town schools, Wake Forest, Duke and North Carolina, along with two major national programs, Kentucky and Kansas, are the finalists for the services of the athletic big man.

Giles made Nike EYBL Peach Jam First Team during the first live recruiting period and has drastically improved his motor and ability to finish around the rim since the U19 World Championships (he won a gold medal) in Greece.

The Wooden Legacy classic, which will be played at the Honda Center in Anaheim, released it's schedule for the late November Tournament on Tuesday. The field features Arizona, Michigan State, Boise State, Boston College and the Big East's very own, Providence. Kris Dunn and the Friars will face off against Evansville in the opening round with a possible match-up against the Wildcats in the second round.

It would be fun to watch one of the best players in the country, Dunn, play against Sean Miller and Arizona on a national televised stage. We certainly hope the Friars can win their first round game and then break up a possible Michigan State-Arizona final!

Maryland doesn't like Duke. Maryland fans don't like Coach K. Shouldn't Terps football head coach Randy Edsall know that?

Edsall, like many college coaches, puts inspirational quotes on Twitter to help his players, but this particular tweet certainly backfired. Edsall put up a quote from the great Mike Krzyzewski. Well he's not "great" in Maryland...

Another excellent interview from Jon Rothstein (of CBS Sports) on Tuesday as he spoke to Maryland head basketball coach Mark Turgeon about their national title hopes, the switch to the Big Ten, the chemistry of the roster and Melo Trimble.

If your looking to watch a Top 10 play live this year in college hoops, turn on UNLV. Freshman Derrick Jones can jump through the roof and it's rather scary. Check out his latest slam. I sort of feel bad for the defender.

5-star recruit from Huntington Prep, Miles Bridges, is down to five schools, Michigan, Michigan State, Kentucky, Indiana and North Carolina. So who has the early lead? Bridges is from Michigan so maybe the Wolverines and Spartans have the early edge. Or maybe it's Kentucky because...well they are Kentucky.

No one would guess Indiana (he just added them to his list) and Bridges tweeted a shoutout to Hoosier fans for making some cool edits. It could mean nothing or it could mean something but it's notable given that it's July and the small forward is the seventh ranked player in the 2016 class.
