Middle Nabs Center

Jontaveous Sulton is headed to Middle Tennessee State, according to a newspaper report.

Middle Tennessee State, according to The Daily News Journal, has picked up its third – and possibly most significant commitment – from a member of the Class of 2009.

Yazoo City (Miss.) High center Jontaveous Sulton picked the Raiders after considering Murray State and Tulane. Last season he averaged 15 points and 8 boards.

"He's still developing his skills, and he's turning into a good player one-on-one facing the basket," Joffre Washington, one of Sulton's coaches told the paper. "He's just a game-changer, and his motor is always running."

Kermit Davis' program previously held pledges from guards John David Little and James Gallman.
