If you thought the Michigan-Ohio State rivalry was intense before, a Wolverines recruit has added a layer of intrigue.
This photo on Tuley-Tillman's Twitter page sparked the reaction.
Logan Tuley-Tillman -- a Class of 2013 recruit who has already committed to Michigan -- posted a picture to his Twitter account last week that showed an official mailing from Ohio State in flames.
The post was picked up by news outlets across the country and led to several replies on Tuley-Tillman's Twitter feed.
In an interview with the Associated Press, Tuley-Tillman said the backlash from Ohio State fans has been "kind of crazy."
The 6-7, 235-pound offensive tackle from Peoria, Ill., won't be on campus for over a year but clearly has already found the spirit of the rivalry.

Tuley-Tillman is a four-star recruit and Scout's No. 16-ranked offensive tackle in the class. Michigan has three five-star and 12 four-star players already committed to the class.
The Michigan-Ohio State rivalry dates back to 1897, with the Wolverines leading the all-time series 58-43-6. Michigan won the annual game last year for the first time since 2003.
