Middleton's Stock Rising & USC Visit On Tap

Khris Middleton is still the hottest player in the state in regards to hoops. Middleton has blown up in the past couple of months and the list of offers continues to grow. The South Carolina Gamecocks are set to get a visit from the 2009 prospect today.

To say things have been hot for Khris Middleton as of late would be putting it lightly. The 2009 prospect is starting to get more and more attention from colleges across the nation. Porter-Gaud head coach John Pearson shared with us the most recent schools showering Middleton with heavy interest and talked about his most recent performance down in Atlanta at the Wallace Prather Tournament.

"The Celtics played very well. They went 3-0 and envoked the mercy rule twice by having a 38 point lead and a 24 point lead in the 4th quarter with 3 minutes to play. Khris was unreal in the first game. He made 7 threes and ended the game with 33 points." Pearson also talked about the schools stepping up their interest in Middleton. "Michigan, Texas A&M, Penn State, American, South Carolina, and Temple are all coming on pretty strong. A&M and Temple are asking a lot of questions about him."

Middleton made the trip out to College Station, Texas recently and will be making the ride up I-26 to check out new head coach Darrin Horn's South Carolina Gamecocks. Although it isn't a certainty speculation is heavy that Middleton will receive an offer from the Gamecocks during his visit.

Khris recently saw his star rating move up to three stars with Scout.com. He is currently rated the #2 prospect in South Carolina for us here at SCPrepNation.com in the 2009 class. He continues to dazzle college coaching staffs with his ability to shoot the three, score, and length.
