Middleton Drafted By Detroit
A 6-foot-7 forward from North Charleston, S.C., Middleton played in 87 games and drew 72 starts for the Aggies over three seasons. An All-Big 12 and all-district selection, he finished his career with 983 points, averaging 11.3 per game with 4.6 rebounds and 2.0 assists. Despite playing in just 20 games due to injuries this past season, Middleton ranked second on the squad in points (13.2) and rebounds (5.0).
Middleton becomes the first draft pick for head coach Billy Kennedy at Texas A&M after taking the reins of the program prior to the last season. Overall, Middleton is the 29th Aggie to be selected in the NBA Draft and the first since Chinemelu Elonu in 2009.
Texas A&M has enjoyed a notable recent run of success in developing NBA draft picks with five selections since 2005, including Antoine Wright, Acie Law IV, DeAndre Jordan and Elonu.
