Michigan Football 2013: Getting to Know More About Recruit Logan Tuley-Tillman

RJ LuchenbillCorrespondent IIIApril 2, 2012

Logan Tuley-Tillman is a true Michigan man, and yet he doesn't enroll into the university until 2013.

He was able to make the trip up to Ann Arbor over the weekend to spring practice with the other Wolverines. 

At 6'7", 300 pounds, Tuley-Tillman is already bigger and taller than most offensive lineman in college football. 

“I’m glad I was able to make it up here for practice because I got to meet another one of my future teammates, Patrick Kugler,” said Tuley-Tillman. “I got to hang out a lot with him and his family. They are great people and we just talked about how exciting it is going to be when we are teammates here at Michigan.”

He currently resides in Peoria, Illinois, but his family is considering a move to Michigan very soon.

“My family and I decided that it’s going to be best for me to move up here for my last year in high school,” said Tuley-Tillman. “I have a lot of family that are real close to Ann Arbor so it will makes things a lot easier. I have been in contact with Shane Morris about possible high schools I should go to because obviously he is really familiar with the schools around here.”

Shane Morris is known around Michigan for actively recruiting other members for the 2013 class. Logan Tuley-Tillman is just as active as Morris.

“I have been helping recruit a running back, wide receiver, and a linebacker from my class,” said Tuley-Tillman. “I can’t say which ones but I am pretty confident they will be going to Michigan. I just try to stress to those recruits about how much of a family we are at Michigan and that we really have something special going on here. The support at Michigan from the fans and everyone around the university is better than anywhere else in my opinion.”

Tuley-Tillman committed to Michigan on February 19th of this year. He also held offers from universities such as Ohio State, Alabama, Florida State, South Carolina, Tennessee and Wisconsin. 

Rated 4-stars by Scout, Rivals and 247Sports, he was pursued by seemingly every major college football program. But he chose Michigan for a reason.

“It was the perfect fit for me,” said Tuley-Tillman. “The coaches were really the deciding factor. I can really trust these coaches and they are straightforward about anything you ask them. That’s why I believe Michigan has had so much success recruiting lately is because of the coaches. I also wanted the best combination of football and academics so Michigan was really a no brainer. They have the best college for my major which is business administration.”

This young man is completely sold out to Michigan. Not only is he an active recruiter, but he also wants to get to know his future teammates and will even go as far as move his entire family to Michigan from Illinois before enrolling in school. 

The future looks extremely bright for Tuley-Tillman. He will only get stronger and perhaps even a bit taller. Get ready for the year 2013.
