UM Commit Threatened for Letter Burning
Offensive lineman and Michigan commit Logan Tuley-Tillman didn’t get a great response from Ohio State fans after he tweeted a photo of himself burning a Buckeyes recruiting letter.
“There have been a couple death threats,” Tuley-Tillman told Yahoo! Sports. “And they’ve been sending my mom messages on Facebook. I just told her you can’t listen to it because it’s one of he biggest rivalries in sports.”
Tuley-Tillman also told Yahoo! that OSU had shown interest in him but he was turned off by the behavior of fans who reportedly shot cuss words at him while he wore a Michigan hat in a Columbus mall. He also told the web site that Ohio State has continued to recruit him while he has been committed to Michigan.
His burning of the letter was a sign that he wasn’t going to make the switch. But Tuley-Tillman went ahead and made it clear.
“I’m all blue all the way,” Tuley-Tillman said. “I have no chance of switching to any school, especially not Ohio.”
The reported death threats made certain of that.
