Former Michigan Offensive Lineman Logan Tuley-Tillman Heading To UTEP
Former Michigan offensive lineman Logan Tuley-Tillman is transferring to the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP), and will be eligible to play for the Miners as a grad transfer this season.
After signing with the Wolverines as a four-star offensive tackle out of Peoria, Ill., in 2013, Tuley-Tillman’s career in Ann Arbor never really took off. He redshirted as a freshman in 2013, and then played in only one game the following season. As a redshirt sophomore in 2015, Tuley-Tillman played in the season opener against Utah, before being dismissed just one week later.
In June of 2016, it was announced he would be transferring to Akron, where he wound up starting all 12 games for the 5-7 Zips last year.
UTEP, who plays in Conference USA, went 4-8 last season, and is coached by Sean Kugler. Kugler is actually the father of Michigan fifth-year senior offensive lineman Pat Kugler, who is in the running to be the Wolverines’ starting center in 2017.
Tuley-Tillman is perhaps best remembered by Michigan fans when he posted a picture of himself burning a recruiting letter from Ohio State on social media while he was still in high school.
