Tillman, who is a mammoth of a young man at 6’7” and 320 pounds, gave his pledge for the Wolverines in February of this past year, and it’s safe to assume that he won’t budge. Well, at least it’s safe to assume that he won’t be switching over to Michigan’s nemesis before National Signing Day rolls along.
The picture above is indeed a letter from Ohio State, which just happens to be in Tillman’s hand (you’d assume) and also on fire. It’s recruiting, and while Tillman has already announced his attentions for next year, it won’t be official until early 2013 when he can sign his letter of intent. This means Tillman will still be recruited before then, although after this that could change.
Tillman posted this photo on his Twitter page with the hashtags #goblue and #beatohio and likely instantly became loved and hated by millions at once. That’s hard to do.
Between this and Shane Morris—a talented Michigan QB commit—photobombing three Ohio Staters at a camp earlier this month, the Michigan/Ohio State rivalry appears to be doing just fine.
