Opening Comment:

On Sunday, February 19th, Michigan continued the firestorm pace that resulted in the mother of all recruiting weekends.

Of the 2013 Michigan commits, four are offensive linemen, leaving a pertinent question to be placed into discussion: Is Michigan actually done regarding offensive line recruiting, or is there room for one more?

Without question, Michigan targeted the very likeable Tuley-Tillman very early in the overall process. The lineman from the 2013 rich Illinois big man group has many of the characteristics of those who committed mere hours earlier.

In many ways this is a big get for Michigan and frankly help wanted sign was just established for a pair of big power backs.

One never knows but Michigan may have two candidates for a power back, Johnson and Shallman, already in the fold; time will tell.

But Michigan football followers may have seen the end of the previous years of one yard and a cloud of nothing on power running plays.

Overview:

Tillman is a Wolverine

Logan Tuley-Tillman is yet another huge body with a nasty attitude. He is a rare combination of size and athletic ability.

Those who keep asking the question, “What about left tackle?” may have finally received an answer. LTT has the skill set to play left tackle.

Strengths: Film on LTT indicates he has a very good get off and 1st step.

He shows good agility and fluid movement, again especially for a 6’ 7” 290 (or so) pound athlete.

LTT uses a left-handed stance, and as one can conclude that asset is a big help in playing left tackle.

Logan moves his feet well and shows a nice level of quickness; again he is impressive on the critical first step.

Film shows him driving defenders 10 yards off the ball and then burying them just for fun.

Needs work:

Like some big guys Logan needs to improve his overall conditioning and continue to add strength.

He would also he well served to improve his balance and overall technique. Again like many linemen 6’6 or bigger Logan needs to be bit more consistent with his pad level.

Final Thoughts:

We welcome Logan Tuley-Tillman to Michigan and hope he has a successful career on and off the football field as a student-athlete at the University of Michigan. Go Blue!

Red-shirt or play his Freshman Year?

GBMWolverine believes he will likely red-shirt his first year. The depth is now adequate for many 2013 guys to grow and learn before hitting the field. Being a left tackle, LTT could quickly move up the depth chart.

Logan Tuley-Tillman reminds the GBMWolverine Staff of — Former Michigan Football Player — Maurice Williams — who played Offensive Line.
