    I've been following this page for a few months now and finally decided to sign up. I didn't see a thread on this guy so I thought I'd make one. This guy is a O-Line grad transfer from Michigan with 2 to play 2. Has been following Tumpkin for a while on Twitter and recently started following Coach Mac, Klayton Adams and the TCU QB transfer Zach Allen

    And let that be a lesson to anyone lurking on how to make a first post. Best bet is to either bring info or to be funny. And since most of us aren't nearly as funny as we think we are...

    Regarding Logan Tuley-Tillman, let's get the felony charges out of the way first. One dismissed, the other resulted in a year's probation (teen offender at the time). Basically, he got caught filming consensual sex with a girl and putting it online. Whatever the specific details, he's no longer at Michigan and is available. Doesn't seem like a bad guy, just someone who made a bad mistake and owned up to it. Illinois and others have been seeking his transfer.

    Dude is 6'7" 309 lbs and played in last year's season opener for Michigan with the legal issue surfacing the next day. The former 4* OT had committed to Washington State in January, but decided to open things up.

    Would be a great addition to the CU program.

    Hopefully the Gordon, Falo and Robbins situations don't cause issues with a move like this.

    With a healthy Sefo, I would have picked Tuley-Tillman over Davis Webb if given my choice between grad transfers. Need to solidify the RT spot for the next 2 seasons much more than we need a QB.

    Tuley-Tillman and Irwin (hopefully) as the starting tackles for the next two years would be a great bridge for the young guys. Fills a huge need.

    From LTT's LinkedIn page (really impressive young man who not only graduated early but is working hard to be a community leader):

    Inspirational Speaker
    Public Speaking
    January 2011 – Present (5 years 5 months)Peoria, Illinois Area

    Giving 20 to 40 minute speech about how "Failure is never final", overcoming adversity, self worth, self love, and how I made the strategic and intentional change to go from a 14 year old kid on the south side of Peoria living in a lower socioeconomic household with limited positive role models to becoming a 2013 Under Armour All-American, college athlete, researcher, and soon to be graduate student.

    Summary
    My objective in public speaking is to inspire and convince society to chase and protect their dreams. I strive to uplift every person that I get the chance to speak to. Concepts of self-worth, overcoming adversity, negative self talk, and the overarching theme of how "failure is never final" are my big points of emphasis. I will also share my story of hardships, perseverance, breaking the cycle of poverty, being a first-gen graduate and the process of how I made my dream a reality. "Failure is never final" epitomizes many things in all of our lives today. Other themes that inspire me to speak are the importance of having "a why", adversity, self worth, and self love. I want is to inspire any and everyone I get the chance to cross paths with through solution based planning and thinking with positivity unknown to man-kind.

    The research I conduct is on African American men ages 12-32 and pertains to social, systemic, and racial disparities. Most of my time is spent on analyzing statistics, recognizing racial disparities, and making assessments in hope of figuring out why homicide is the # 1 cause of death for black males in this age range.

    There hasn't been much traction with us here in a while with how far back those follows were nor does he tend to like Chev's tweets like he does other schools, I wouldn't get your hopes up, JMO.

    That was my first impression. Then I noticed that he and Zach Allen recently started following each other. Hmmm...

    Tillman would be an awesome get. We need him badly. Getting him here for 2016 would be huge news!

    Updated the OP into a standard profile and pruned out the long discussion of Zach Allen.

    This could potentiall change the outlook on our season. He along with Irwin coming back at the tackles could turn the OL from a positon of great concern to one that is a strength.

    Having two years to play would also add some stability. This would be a big get for us.

    I suspect he got caught up in the politics due to the **** bailer! situation. Very few problems were going to announce they were taking a transfer from someone who had been convicted of a sex-based offense. Details wouldn't matter to most of the public right now.
