He is ranked the No. 7 small forward in the Class of 2023 per 247Sports.com.
“UConn was really good,” he said. “Getting to see the history that UConn has and really getting the opportunity to see the campus and spend some time with the coaching staff.”
He added: “They think because of my versatility and my defensive mindset and the way they play, very fast and aggressive, I’ll be a modern day wing at UConn.”
Asked if he can see himself playing for head coach Dan Hurley, Middleton said, “Yes, I can envision myself playing at UConn and making an immediate impact as a freshman from the way they play and coach.”
