"I feel like I played good to make up from all of the time I missed out on," said Tillman of his junior year. "I think I did a good job of scoring in the paint, playing defense, blocking shots, and rebounding."
At about 6-foot-7 and 200 pounds, Tillman is a good athlete who can finish well around the rim and just has the nose to know how to rebound. That combination has some top schools in the area turning up the attention on him.
The Wolverines have stayed in touch with Tillman, and they will continue to monitor him this spring and summer.
"It is good that a school that is in the top 10 sees my talents and likes me," said Tillman of Michigan. "It is close to home and I like them."
Tillman's high school team visited Xavier last June, and the Musketeers have been in close contact ever since.
"They tell me I would be a great forward for them and I could be very effective," said Tillman of Xavier. "Their coaches and I have a good relationship."
Also the Purdue Boilermakers are starting to pick up the interest in Tillman, and will be taking a look at him this spring.
"I don't know a lot about Purdue, but I am hearing from them and they stay in contact," said Tillman.
With AAU play set to get under way in the next few weeks, Tillman's goal is simple.
"I am hoping to show people my skill and improvement, and how much better I am from last summer," said Tillman.
