Offensive Lineman Hoping For USC Offer

At 6-6 335 he is one of the more massive offensive line prospects in the country this year and he likes the Gamecocks ...

As the cousin and teammate of Alonzo Middleton, Orangeburg-Wilkinson (SC) offensive lineman Brandon Middleton is making a name as well.

"I am taking a look at a couple of schools now, but I like South Carolina and Tennessee," says the 6-foot-6, 335 pounder. "If I had to round out a top five, I would say North Carolina, Wake Forest, and Maryland."

Among the top-two schools, one could be on the verge of an offer.

"I talked to the South Carolina offensive line coach, and I think that if I have a good spring game, South Carolina should offer."

With no date set for the spring game, due to a new head coach, Middleton believes it could be May 19. However, a strong summer and fall in combination with his weightroom numbers, could garner more offers for the right tackle.

"Last year I graded out at 88 percent and I had 56 knockdown blocks. This year, the coaches are talking about playing defensive tackle as well as offensive line. I think I will probably be a right tackle in college."

Middleton has a 460 pound bench and 595 pound squat.
