Basketball player Jermaine Middleton will tell his story in his upcoming book for VIP Ink Publishing. Middleton spent most of his childhood and teen years in his birthplace of Los Angeles, California. He never played basketball until he was 16, when he underwent a seven inch growth spurt. At that point, Willie E. West Jr., the head coach at Crenshaw high school, recruited him to join the team. Middleton graduated in 2003, then finished his high school career at South Kent School, an all-boys prep school in Connecticut.
After that, Jermaine attended Central Connecticut State University for two years, then transferred to Northwood University in West Palm Beach, Florida. In a two year span where he played for Northwood, his team won 54 games, winning the regular season Sun Conference Championship both years. In 2008, the team advanced to the NAIA National Tournament Quarterfinals, and were ranked in the top16 of the NAIA in 2009.
Middleton was a huge success at Northwood. He displayed the ability to rebound the ball on both ends of the floor, as well as use a soft touch around the basket. He also runs the floor well, can shoot a jumper, shoot a jump-hook with two hands, and bock shots.
In 2009 at the Premier Basketball League Draft, Middleton was drafted ninth overall by the two-time defending champion Rochester Razor Sharks. In 2012, Jermaine “Stretch” Middleton signed with the Harlem Globetrotters. At 7’4”, he is the third tallest player in team history.
