Darel Middleton, who played at four schools before committing to Jackson State, has reopened his recruitment.

The announcement came on Twitter less than a month after the 6-foot-7, 305 pound defensive lineman committed to the Tigers on June 4.

"My recruitment is still 100% open," Middleton wrote on Twitter.

He played in 22 games and made 12 starts during his two seasons at Tennessee. He had 43 tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss, and a pair of sacks.

He spent his first two years at East Mississippi Community College where he was a member of the 2018 NJCAA national title team.
