Alonzo Middleton Profile

Alonzo Middleton, of Orangeburg Wilkinson, S.C., favors South Carolina slightly over Clemson, East Carolina and Memphis--and each has offered. Alonzo is visiting the Gamecocks on 1/16 and says they are recruiting him the hardest. "It's relatively close to home (only 45 minutes), which is nice. I like that they are showing dedication to their program. They are building new facilities and are spending a lot of money to improve. The coaches were at my house on 11/30."

Clemson is about three hours from Alonzo's home and he says he likes that the Tigers are an up and coming team. "They are really making strides to be a contender in the ACC every year."

He also likes East Carolina and Memphis. "East Carolina just completed a new, huge weightlifting center. It's the best I've ever seen."

Alonzo says he won't decide until he takes all his visits. He's already been selected to play in the annual Shrine Bowl on 12/20.
