Defensive end is another position that Michigan will look to target after losing three of their two deep to graduation, including both starters, Rondell Biggs and All-American and Lombardi award winner Lamarr Woodley. One of the top players at that position on the West Coast and one of Scout.com's 100 juniors to watch is Kavario Middleton out of Lakes High School in Lakewood, Washington.
Middleton currently stands at an imposing 6-6.5 and 240 pounds. His height and 4.76 sec. 40 speed enables him to be a threat at both tight end and defensive end for his squad.
When asked what makes him such a dominating player, Middleton credits his intensity, athleticism, and coaching. "I would describe my playing style as tough, finesse, well-coached understanding of the game of all sports that I play. I am a leader and difference maker in EVERY game that I am involved because of my over whelming physical presence."
Kavario told GoBlueWolverine currently has a top 5 of Washington, Oregon, USC, Michigan, and Miami, but he also says he remains open at this point in time.
He intends on spending his summer playing AAU basketball throughout the United States.
Middleton does cite specific criteria that he will be looking for in a school. "The most important factors are academics first and foremost, then the schools program, and the location."
