The talented prospect is hearing from many but favors two at this point.
"I am still wide open about where I am going to go, but I'd say Louisville and Ole Miss have the lead right now," he said.
"I've been a fan of Louisville since I was growing up and really have always liked that school," he said. "Also, I have a relationship with Coach Strong when he was down in Florida. We had gotten to know each other so when I got that offer from them I was real happy."
Ole Miss was another school that made the offer to Middleton.
"I like the coaches a lot there and the program in general," he said. "I had a great camp there and thought it might be a nice fit for me. They are really up and coming so they are high on my list too."
He also listed Southern Miss as a school that was high on his list.
"I have gotten to know Coach Zo through the process and I really enjoyed my time meeting the coaches at the camp in Birmingham," he said. "Southern Miss has a winning tradition that I like, and they want me to be on the defensive line and could see me coming after the QB in a LB spot as well.
"I know their coaches know how to coach defense, so yeah, they are a school I'm considering as well."
Middleton says he has no idea about a commitment, he wants to take his time and his visits this upcoming school year. For now, he'll be taking a few days to prepare for camp in the fall by just working out and trying to recover from the camp circuit.
