Finesse Middleton, a 6-foot-2 255-pound defensive tackle from Garden City, AL., had been committed to Ole Miss since late July, but had a change of heart over the weekend while on his official visit to Louisville. Middleton switched his commitment from the Rebels to the Cards earlier today.
This was Middleton’s second visit to Louisville in recent months. He visited unofficially for Louisville’s game against South Florida in October. Middleton also has offers from Southern Miss, Tulane, UAB and Middle Tennessee State.
Middleton says Charlie Strong told him on his visit that he will be at Louisville next season. With the Cardinals having a limited amount of scholarships to give in the 2013 class, it’s nice to steal a recruit from an SEC school.
