Coach: Giles transferring to USF (Updated)

UPDATE: A Big East Conference official has confirmed that there are no exceptions to the conference’s policy that states once a student-athlete in football or men’s and women’s basketball attends a member institution that student-athlete cannot transfer to another member institution, directly or indirectly, and be eligible to compete in that sport.
So because Giles attended Louisville, and even though he did not play a down for the Cardinals, he cannot compete for another Big East football program.
Former Tampa Gaither running back Jarvis Giles is transferring to the University of South Florida, according to his high school coach.
Mark Kantor, who coached Giles at Gaither, said Saturday that the former Cowboys standout had informed him of his intentions to transfer to USF in the fall. It will be the third college for Giles, who originally began his career at South Carolina and recently left Louisville. Kantor said Giles would have to sit out the 2011 season per NCAA transfer rules.
Giles rushed for 277 yards as a freshman at South Carolina in 2009, but left the team during the 2010 season and ended up at Louisville. It was reported earlier this month that he was leaving the Cardinals program.
Rivals.com rated Giles a four-star recruit and the nation’s 122nd best prospect overall in the Class of 2009.
