Middleton discusses decommitment
The 6'5", 245 pound Middleton explained how he came to the decision to decommit from South Carolina.
"It was a mutual decommitment, really," said Middleton. "The (USC) coaches weren't too sure about how I would fit into their offense, and I just had a change of heart."
Middleton, who estimated that he runs a 4.8 or 4.9 in the forty yard dash, said that concerns about his speed played a part in this decision on South Carolina's end.
"I was just up at their football camp Sunday through Tuesday," he said. "Catching the ball, they thought I did well and all that. But they were more worried about my speed than anything else."
Middleton stated that he is "totally open" again in his recruitment. While he still plans to keep in touch with the Gamecocks, he listed off Rutgers, Louisville, Arkansas, Mississippi State, and Maryland as other schools that he plans to take a look at now.
The Peach State tight end totaled 25 catches for 350 yards and two receiving touchdowns in his junior season.
