Kavario Middleton says all of his favorites are recruiting him for offense (tight end), except Michigan, which wants Middleton for defensive end. "I get mail from Michigan everyday," Middleton said. "They are recruiting me the most. They send lots of stuff. I really like their program because they are always good and I like how fast and hard they play..."

Kavario Middleton, the 6-foot-6, 240-pound five-star defensive end/tight end from Lakes High School in Lakewood, Wash., still has six favorites from among 13 scholarship offers.

Middleton, ranked No. 1 in the Northwest and No. 3 in the West by Scout.com, has narrowed down his choices to Washington, Oregon, California, Arizona State, Michigan and Miami. All of his favorites have offered, plus Minnesota, Washington State, Arizona, Idaho and Oregon State.

"I think I'll decide after all my visits," Middleton said. "I think going to each school and experiencing it in person is gonna be important."

He doesn't have any official visits scheduled yet, but has visited Washington and Oregon previously.

"Washington is building a new program," he said. "They are young and up-and-coming. I also like the coaches a lot. They are cool people. I'm hearing from (assistant) coach Charlie Baggett a lot. He's a cool person and we seem to get along well."

Middleton camped at Oregon. "It was a great time," he said. "I liked being able to check out the competition and work with the coaches. They are great coaches too. I also like the facilities a lot because everything is new and top of the line."

Middleton says all of his favorites are recruiting him for offense, except Michigan, which wants Middleton for defensive end. "I get mail from Michigan everyday," Middleton said. "They are recruiting me the most. They send lots of stuff. I really like their program because they are always good and I like how fast and hard they play.

"Obviously, they are always a top team and I expect Michigan to have another great season," he said. "I think Miami will also be very improved. Michigan and Miami are the two schools I'm most looking forward to watching this season."

He reports a 2.5 core GPA and a 19 ACT.
