Tillman is one of the under-the-radar guys that Tennessee discovered late in the recruiting process, and although 247Sports has awarded him three stars, he doesn’t appear on any national, positional, or state rankings. His offer list includes Hawaii, UNLV, and Weber State.
According to Rivals, Tillman grew four inches and put on 25 pounds between his junior and senior seasons, and he signed with the Vols without ever having stepped foot on campus because he appreciated the coaches taking a chance on him.
Word around the Twitters is that Tennessee has now also offered wide receiver Joseph Norwood, which might mean the other receivers higher on their board are going elsewhere. We’ll see.
