Tillman, who is the second-ranked player in Michigan, per ESPN’s Top 100, had Michigan State, Marquette, and Purdue in his final three.
Michigan State held the majority in Tillman’s Crystal Ball, however, there was late traction towards Marquette.
Marquette’s attention now turns to Hasahn French, another 2017 big man, who visited the school a few weeks back.
