Tulane is up to 10 commitments for their 2020 football recruiting class with the addition of defensive tackle Dane Middlebrook.

The 6-foot-1, 318 pounder from Brownsburg, Indiana considered other offers from Ball State, Yale, Kent State, Ohio State, Western Illinois, Miami (Ohio), Toledo,Bowling Green, Eastern Michigan, Dartmouth and Central Michigan. He took unofficial visits to Ohio State, Kentucky, Ball State, Missouri, Notre Dame and Purdue.

Middlebrook, who bench presses 325 pounds and squats 600, is the third defensive line pledge to the Green Wave during this class. He collapses the pocket as either a nose tackle or 3 tech and maintains his balance while disengaging with blockers. Middlebrook uses his hands very well and skates along the line to make tackles.
