Five-star East St. Louis center Jeremiah Tilmon will not sign with Illinois during the early signing period, Scout.com's Evan Daniels reports. Tilmon committed to Illinois in July.

Tilmon is the headliner recruit of an Illini recruiting class that currently ranks No. 6 in Scout.com's team recruiting rankings. Losing Tilmon would be a crushing blow to Illini head coach John Groce's efforts to build momentum in a program that has missed three straight NCAA Tournaments for the first time since 1980.

Three recruits are expected to sign with Illinois tomorrow: four-star Florida point guard Trent Frazier, four-star Peoria shooting guard DaMonte Williams and three-star Belleville wing Javon Pickett.
