When will the 5-star visit Wake?

Harry Giles, the best high school basketball player in the country and Wake Forest's top target, has set his official visit dates. He has scheduled a visit with his five finalists: Wake Forest, Duke, Kentucky, North Carolina, and Kansas. When will the Winston-Salem native be taking his official visit to Wake?

Wake Forest will have the first official visit for Mr. Giles. That official will take place over the weekend of September 19th. Wake Forest will not be hosting a home football game that weekend. My opinion is that Danny Manning should personally drive to Oak Hill Academy and take Giles to Wake. Hope for great weather.

I won't read too much into the order of the visits, other than it's probably preferable to be either first or last. Granted, I'm not thrilled about Duke being last. He will also visit Kentucky for its Big Blue Madness event, which Giles also visited in 2013. Honestly, Giles has taken so many unofficial visits to Wake Forest, that I'm not sure the official visit even matters that much. Then again, I could be very wrong. While there's almost nothing I'd rather do than write an article on the weekend of September 19th that says that Harry Giles has committed to Wake Forest (it would be in ALL CAPS by the way), I expect that he will take all five of his official visits and announce some time in early November.

What do you all think about the order of the visits?
