Tuley-Tillman has what Michigan is looking for

Peoria (Ill.) Manual junior offensive lineman Logan Tuley-Tillman stands 6-7, 280 pounds, and looks the part of a college offensive tackle. He will get the opportunity to extend his football career in college, already earning scholarship offers from four BCS-conference programs. Michigan was the latest to offer, and he got good news from the Wolverines yesterday.

Manual High School struggled during the 2011 season. Several key players missed large chunks of the season due to injury, and the Rams finished with a disappointing 3-6 record. Despite the lack of team success, Michigan's coaches saw a lot to like on Tuley-Tillman's junior film.

Indiana, Missouri and Illinois have also offered Tuley-Tillman, but his relationships with Michigan's coaches have the Wolverines in an enviable position.

Tuley-Tillman experienced gameday at Michigan Stadium twice this fall. He witnessed Michigan wins over Nebraska and Ohio State in consecutive weeks. Each time, he left with a greater appreciation of the atmosphere inside the Big House.

Michigan wasn't the only school he saw this fall, though. Tuley-Tillman also took trips to Indiana, South Carolina, Missouri, and Illinois. Over the winter, he'll continue his travels, making visits to Notre Dame, Arkansas, Tennessee, and Nebraska. Of course, he'll also be returning to Ann Arbor.

Despite all the attention from colleges, Tuley-Tillman has remained humble. He plans to narrow down his list - and possibly make a decision - by the beginning of his senior football season. Right now though, he's just enjoying the ride.
