WCIA — Illinois basketball commit Jeremiah Tilmon did not sign his National Letter of Intent on the opening day of the signing period Wednesday. The 5-star center from East St. Louis committed back in July and visited the campus in early September but now questions abound after he’s gone silent the last few days.
Tilmon is the signature recruit in the 2017 class for head coach John Groce and Illinois. Three others did sign their NLI’s on Wednesday, including Peoria Manual’s Da’Monte Williams, Florida’s Trent Frazier and Belleville East’s Javon Pickett. The 6-foot-4 wing joined WCIA 3’s Craig Choate live just a few minutes after his signing ceremony.
