Junior day visit produces offer

Peoria (Ill.) Manual offensive tackle Logan Tuley-Tillman is one of the hottest 2013 prospects in the country this winter, adding close to two dozen offers since the end of his junior season.
One program that Tuley-Tillman had not been offered by, however, was Iowa, but a junior day visit to Iowa City this past weekend took care of that.
"I was up at Iowa on Sunday and they offered me," Tuley-Tillman said. "They have a good history of putting out offensive linemen - they had a whole spread and there were at least 20 o-linemen [in the NFL] - so that was great to be recognized as a talent that can fit in their offense."
The junior day visit gave Tuley-Tillman the opportunity to meet the offensive line coach responsible for producing many of those current NFL offensive linemen, Reese Morgan.
"I actually sat there and talked to him while we were watching film and saw how he teaches them how to play," Tuley-Tillman said.
With the addition of Iowa, Tuley-Tillman now holds 23 scholarship offers. An offer from Wisconsin immediately preceded the one from Iowa.
"That came on Signing Day from Coach Bielema," Tuley-Tillman said. "He was just talking about the player I am and how I'll fit in there."
Campus visits have been going on since late in the fall for Tuley-Tillman, and two teams he has seen in recent months are starting to rise to the top of his interest list.
"There's Michigan and Alabama, then all the other ones are equally [spread out] across the board," he said.
Tuley-Tillman plans to continue his junior day tour with visits to Michigan and Michigan State this coming weekend. He will then travel to North Carolina on Feb. 18, Tennessee on March 3 and expects to see USC next month as well.
