Michigan recruit burns Ohio State letter
By Brian Bennett
Urban Meyer had great success in changing some recruits' minds and getting them to commit to Ohio State last winter.
But Michigan commit Logan Tuley-Tillman does not appear willing to listen to any overtures from the Buckeyes. The offensive tackle set fire to a recruiting letter he'd received from Ohio State and tweeted this picture of the correspondence in flames. He used the hash tags #goblue and #beatohio along with his picture.
Tuley-Tillman is a 6-foot-7 tackle who is an ESPN 150 prospect. He is ranked as the No. 9 offensive tackle in the nation by ESPN.com
Another Michigan committed recruit, linebacker Mike McCray II, reportedly received an offer from Ohio State. That's interesting because his father was a Buckeyes linebacker and captain. But McCray -- who's from Trotwood, Ohio -- appears to be solid in his commitment to the Wolverines and tweeted that he had no interest in Ohio State's offer.
Michigan coach Brady Hoke has not not had any committed players flip to Meyer yet. It seems like a safe bet that Tuley-Tillman won't be the first.
