Michigan Recruit To Buckeyes : Fuck Off

OL Logan Tuley-Tillman (Manuel High, Peoria, IL) committed to the University Of Michigan earlier this year.  Recruiting letters have continued to arrive, however, including one from Ohio State.   A photo of OSU’s envelope in flames was posted to Tuley-Tillman’s Twitter acccount, and he claims he’s received death threats as a result.  From The Detroit Free-Press’ Erick Smith :

Tuley-Tillman participated in a Nike Camp in Columbus and was turned off by the behavior of Ohio State fans while he was wearing a Michigan hat.

“I was up there and the fans were cussing me out and they were saying ‘(expletive) you’ and stuff like that while I was walking through the mall,” Tuley-Tillman said. “It wasn’t like in my face. They were like saying things and then would power walk away. One of them actually threw something at me, but it didn’t hit me. So, that’s how it started.”

Those harsh feelings continue for Tuley-Tillman.

“There was just something about them,” he said. “They’re a good school, I just really hate the whole state of Ohio. I just can’t wait to get a chance to play them.”
