Jarvis Giles officially heading to Louisville

I'm ecstatic about this. Vic and Bilal will be gone by the time Giles is eligible (2012), and there's no telling how Jeremy Wright is going to develop. Also, you can never have too much talent in the backfield.

Giles played as a true freshman in 2009, rushing for 277 yards (5.3 a carry), but played sparingly in three games this season before announcing his intent to transfer. Due to the emergence of freshman running back Marcus Lattimore, Giles had carried the ball just twice in 2010.

Giles was one of the top running back prospects in the nation coming out of Gaither. He initially committed to Tennessee before his senior season, but decommitted when former Vols coach Phillip Fulmer resigned.
