Tillery learns more about Notre Dame
One of the seven 2015 commits on hand for Irish Invasion Friday night was four-star offensive tackle Jerry Tillery. "It was a great experience," Tillery said. "From experiencing the football meetings to meeting with Jack Swarbrick and the academic people, it was all very helpful in my evaluation of Notre Dame. The competition Friday night was great, too. It prepared me even more for The Opening in a couple of weeks." "It was also great working with Coach (Harry) Hiestand," Tillery said. "I love learning from him. I also liked working with Tristen Hoge. He's a great guy, which is good to know, because we're obviously going to be spending a lot of time together." Tillery plans to major in both biology and theology at Notre Dame. "I am going to go into pre-med," Tillery said. "They kind of showed me a complete outline of classes that I would take and what type of support system I would have. I would be very well-taken care of, especially since I would have a lot on my plate majoring in biology and theology." Tillery has no other visit plans this summer, other than heading to Oregon for The Opening -- but visiting other schools is a possibility. LSU is coming after the Evangel Christian Academy tackle hard. "Yeah, they are," Tillery said, when asked if LSU is recruiting him hard. "I don't have any (visit) plans as of now, but obviously that could change," Tillery said. Tillery is eyeing the Michigan game for when he'll be back at Notre Dame next. "That's definitely the game I want to try to go on for my official visit next season," Tillery said.
