The 6-foot-7, 235-pound forward is generating recruiting interest from all over the country as he claimed scholarship offers from Cornell, NC State, Creighton, DePaul, Kentucky, Michigan State, Ohio State, Purdue and Xavier. But the Wolfpack have shown a lot of interest, as Tillman also has some contact with Duke, Florida, Louisville, North Carolina, Stanford and Syracuse.
Tillman indicated that they're the school recruiting him the hardest.
"Right now, N.C. State. They're texting me a lot, calling me a lot, checking in on me a lot," Tillman said.
N.C. State has already made a big of an impression on Tillman for their recent success.
"They're a good team overall. Last year they beat Duke, which is a high-level team, so you know they can play," Tillman said of the Wolfpack.
It's still early in the recruiting process for Tillman, but he will try to make some trips to see some campuses in the near future. It's also possible that he starts to form a list soon, as well.
"Probably the end of this August I might cut it down to 10 or 15 or so. And then later on I'll keep cutting it down as I go," Tillman said. "I think after the fall, I'll have my 10 or my 15."
When deciding on a future program, Tillman is very much about being a positive environment where a good support system is in place.
"First off, they have to have a family, like my team has to be all together. No selfishness," Tillman said. "They have to be a winning team. They have to want to win no matter what. And the coach has to be a good guy."
During the spring and summer, Tillman played with the Michigan Mustangs 16U team.
