Per TomVH he's moving up with his mom and sister:
OL commit Logan Tuley-Tillman (@LoganTillman) planning to move to Michigan:
Doesn't know where to yet, but not DeLeSalle because he plans on EE.
great...Not sure how that will help him to EE, but seems to strengthen that commit substantially. Kinda reminds me of Ricardo Miller. I hope he sees time this season, bc he just bled maize and blue...
But to get out of Peoria. He can't go to de la salle and then EE
Can't go wrong if you live in Michigan.
Other than East Lansing of course. Other than that, the state is phenomenal IMO
I don't consider that Michigan. I think of EL as its own shitty country.
April Fools? And wouldn't he have to sit out his senior year?
I thought of this at first as well but I would assume there's an exception made for people moving into the state.
thought this too... wary of any 4/1 posts - can we confirm if this is a legit news story? if i recall correctly he did say his mom was planning on moving closer to whichever college he chose to accept a scholarship to play football and get a degree... would make sense if he moves near ann arbor.... yet another step for LTT in achieving his goals. perhaps trips to core 6 no longer, but instead popping in to barwis instead senior year?
No April fools joke here. He wouldn't have to sit out a year because yes he is moving out of state and if I remember correctly MHSAA doesn't have the rule of having to sit out a year. ( maybe wrong with that however but I don't believe I am)
I'm pretty sure when I was in high school the rule was you had to sit out a semester, meaning if you transferred over winter break you would be eligible for fall sports. I also knew of a few kids that got exceptions pretty easily.
is a standard exception.
Yes but there is an exemption if you move into a new ditrict, which I'm pretty sure would qualify for him
There is also an exception if the school you are transferring from does not offer the sport you want to play. The school I attended was small and did not have a hockey team so a classmate would transfer to Sault Ste Marie for hockey season and then transfer back after the season was over and play baseball.
LTT would be able to play right away in the fall. I actually moved from Green Bay Wisconsin my senior year to play basketball in Menominee Michigan and I was allowed to play without sitting out at all. As long as a parent moves with the kid into the district, that kid can see playing time immediately.
What's "together" about this.
I've heard the thought is to go to Cass Tech.
He said he wants to move away from Peoria because it's kind of a rough town, so moving from Peoria to Detroit seems like a lateral move at best.
Just saying what I've heard from a pretty good source.
He does seem to have it together. In addition to all of the work he's put in at Core 6, he recently posted a picture of his report card and it was straight As.
It will make it easier to go to UofM to see the coaches. Just another move to make his committment solid.
Looks like no second thoughts of another school.
OH NOES!!! He must be considering switching to MSU!!!
If that were the case, why would he move in-state? MSU recruits nationally now.
So he's moving to Toledo then?
he ends up at East Grand Rapids. They seem to pull in all kinds of transfer talent from in state as well as out of state.
If this is legit, I would assume he would be moving in with his aunt who lives in Michigan. Not sure where that is but I remember it being mentioned in an interview that he has an aunt that live ~20 mins from ann arbor.
EDIT: didnt see the moving with mom and sister part (still assume it would be whereever is aunt lives though)
His aunt is in Wyandotte.
He should play at Riverview. Coach Carr would agree.
Wooooo Downriver represent!
Lincoln Park. So I'd say things are up in the air because of open schools in the area.
I would strongly doubt that he ends up at LP. If he's looking for good football in the downriver area, Wyandotte is prob his best bet. Southgate and AP aren't what they used to be. And if im not mistaken, I believe LTT is friends with Hunter Matt, 2012 EMU signee from Wyandotte. This isn't creepy knowledge, btw. I have a younger brother that goes to Wyandotte, and this is the scuttlebutt I hear
Wyandotte had a good year in 2011, but saying Allen Park and Southgate aren't what they used to be seems a little backwards. Wyandotte was winless in 2009 and 2010, then went 9-3 in 2011. Meanwhile, Allen Park had a couple .500-ish seasons and then went 8-3 in 2011. It just seems kind of misleading to tout Wyandotte when both teams had similar records last season while AP has been a much better team in recent years.
Wyandotte does not have much tradition as a good football program, either. We also traditionally do not put out any D1 prospects. The last one off the top of my head that actually made it D1 was a kicker for Michigan (h.s. class of '93)
I remember a kid named Jason Ptak, who I believe got a scholarship from MSU.
Southgate Anderson? Keith Mitchell FTW!! #90
Wyandotte Roosevelt is 55- 13 since Ron Adams took over, no winless seasons since the eighties, great facilities , training center,great field turf
Touche. I was looking at the wrong Wyandotte.
they are definitely on the upswing since Adams took over. Pretty darn good coach he is, beats the hell out of Baker and Estella's reigns. They started improvements in the mid '00s and seem to continue them. I wouldn't be surprised to see them grow into one of the consistently better public schools in the area. They're a choice/open district, too.
Wyandotte was senior laden last year, but they are well coached. Don't rule out Carlson.
Wyandotte has beat AP 5 times in a row including 43-,7 37-0, 48- 7 games and 26- 0 magnus is a little off
Take that USC! He wants to prove Magnus wrong.
Happy to hear this, enrolling early will be great for him not just for the s&c but the sooner this kid gets proper Oline coaching the better. I think he ends up a beast here and is the next great LT after long and Lewan.
99% of the time O-Linemen redshirt their first year. Is there really an advantage for them to enroll early?
He will probably still redshirt, but it gives him that much more of an advantage after that. Getting in early for those spring practices and summer workouts is huge, like really, really huge, regardless of position or how likely they are to redshirt.
I don't think you have to EE to participate in the summer workouts. I'm sure the extra Spring Practices help but I don't really see much of a difference in the long run. Then again what the hell do I know.
In his last presser Mattison said he would love to have all the freshmen enroll early so he could get that much more time with them. Maybe it doesn't make a difference if you have a lot of depth and they won't see the field for 2 years anyway, but we don't really have that. A lot of positions are wide open, and with extra practice LTT could move ahead of the other members of his ridiculous OL class for playing time.
You don't have to EE to participate in summer workouts, but usually the non-EE guys don't get there until the beginning on July, based on when they can move into the dorms. At that point, you get about one month to participate in whatever you can before fall camp starts. That's not a lot of time.
Compate that to getting to campus the first week of January, and starting with the S&C program then. By the time your classmates show up in July, you have 6 months of college workouts, all of spring practice with the coaches, and all of the summer workouts.
For the first half of July when the rest of the freshmen are acclimating to college practices, the coaching staff, being away from home, and figuring out how to get around campus, you're full speed as if you're a sophomore. It's a big advantage.
It has two primary benefits. You have the ability to acclimated to going to Michigan without having to deal with football at the same time and you get that extra time in a college strength and conditioning program. The extra 15 practices are just an added bonus.
Considering there will be the possibility of Taylor leaving after next season getting a LT prospect on campus early is a good thing.
From a talent perspective I can definitely see why people continue to mention Lewan as a potential early exit to the NFL, but I haven't heard anything from him on that subject and at least the most recent history shows that our top lineman (i.e. Jake Long) stayed to play all four years.
Long was with the program from the 2003 season through the 2007 season and he was a better player than Lewan (no disrespect meant... this is Jake Long we're talking about here). To go along with that, the emphasis this program places on "playing for the seniors" would lead me to believe that a guy like Lewan would want to stick around for his senior year just to be a part of that whole experience.
All I'm saying is that, while he has the talent to leave early, there is nothing that says he will for sure and there seems like plenty of evidence to suggest that he would want to stay.
I don't know, just my opinion I guess. Not trying to ruffle any feathers.
if i recall correctly, magnus sparked a mini mgomeltdown with a comment that LTT has tremendous upside but something to the effect that he was a bit raw and needed some improvements re technique/footwork ... EE gives him more time to do so right, plus access to the mich strength & conditioning facilities?
Yep, it wouldn't hurt to get him earlier. Plus, depending on which school he attends, he might get some better coaching in his senior season, too.
It could be for academic purposes. He would have the chance to experience college courses without having to practice for a few weeks. I imagine non EE have a lot to adjust to at one time and that enrolling in January would help ease the transition.
if you change addresses you dont have to sit out a year
I went to Wyandotte and the Bears would love to have him! But honestly he should be playing in a big time league with the best the state has to offer.
$10 says he goes to Carson City - Crystal or Fulton!!
Where I coach, I will take him gladly and in big need of a tackle lol. It is not too far from Wyandotte either. I wonder if I can recruit him.....
...could use a guy like Logan!
LTT told 247 he's recruiting a WR, RGB, & LB to go to Michigan, and he's confident they'll all commit?
