Central Signs 7-3 Recruit
April 27, 2004
Staff And Wire Reports

Jermaine Middleton, a 7-foot-3 center from South Kent School, signed a national letter of intent Monday with Central Connecticut.

"I know Coach [Howie] Dickenman was an assistant before for Jim Calhoun at UConn and has had a long history of helping out big men," Middleton said.

Middleton says he weighs 230.

"He's long and thin," Dickenman said. "He'll be on the reverse Atkins diet."

Middleton averaged 13 points and nine rebounds as a postgraduate at South Kent. He also visited the University of Washington and St. John's.

"Central's a small school; the environment is good," Middleton said. "I think I can play, do well there and contribute in [the Northeast Conference]. And I don't have to redshirt a season."

Middleton said he needs to get stronger and play more aggressively on defense.

"The big thing for us is he's a player with upside," Dickenman said. "He has good hands and a sky hook with range. He certainly has to work and get stronger - his bed will be in the weight room - but he's 7-3."

Central needs help inside with the graduation of NEC Player of the Year Ron Robinson.

Central plays NCAA champion UConn next season. The game will be a reunion for Middleton and Huskies guard Marcus Williams, teammates for three years at Crenshaw High in Los Angeles.

"I'm looking forward to seeing Marcus," Middleton said.
