"There are a lot of schools showing interest in me," said Fleming. "I have been offered by Kennesaw State, Cincinnati, Jackson State, ULM, Mississippi Valley State, Stephen F. Austin, Alabama, Auburn, Southern Miss and Iowa State. I have talked to Mississippi State and Ole Miss one time. They are just getting into my recruiting. Others that are showing interest in me are Murray State, South Alabama and Kansas State."
He pointed out what colleges coaches have told him that they like about him.
"The coaches have told me that they like my skill-set and how well I played during the summer."
He has unofficially visited a couple of colleges.
"I have visited Auburn, Alabama and Southern Miss," said Fleming. "When I visited they basically showed me around and talked about their school a little bit. Of course, they talked about their basketball program."
Fleming knows what his strengths are but he also knows he is a long way from being a finish product.
"Right now, my strength is playing with my back to the basket," said Fleming. "I'm also good at getting offensive rebounds. Defensively, I am good at rebounding and blocking shots.
"What I am working on is getting in better shape and improving my jump shot."
