“The Clemson Family certainly rings true with the Middlebrooks. I’m very happy that Ben chose to join his sister and become a Tiger,” said Brownell. “Ben is a skilled, versatile big who moves very well for his size and rebounds the ball at a high level. He has a high motor and excels because of his skill level and high basketball IQ. His passion for Clemson was evident throughout the recruiting process and fans will see it in his play.”
