Tillman is a prospect on the rise as the more he plays the more college recruiters like him.
A two-year starter, Tillman made 53 tackles a year ago, scored one touchdown off a punt block, broke up seven passes and had 31 assisted tackles. Tillman also came up with seven sacks a year ago.
Tillman attended the OU and Florida State camps this past summer and played well at both. Tillman can bench 310 pounds, squats 375 and has posted a 27-inch vertical jump. Tillman also has a 5.0 shuttle run.
"My top five schools are Oklahoma, Florida State, LSU, USC, Michigan State and Texas A&M," said Tillman. "So far West Virginia and Colorado have offered me scholarships. The teams that are showing me the most interest right now are Florida State, Oklahoma, Texas A&M,
Michigan State and LSU. All of those coaches called me on the first day they could."
"I like Oklahoma and the way they play defense. They are a good team, I like Coach (Brent) Venables, who would be my position coach there. I like the defense they run and they are a well-balanced team."
