Notre Dame in touch with 2013 tackle


The interest in Class of 2013 offensive tackle Logan Tuley-Tillman (Peoria, Ill./Manual) is starting to pick up from a number of Midwest schools.

On Monday, Notre Dame offensive line coach Ed Warriner was the latest to reach out to Tuley-Tillman by sending him a message on Facebook.

“They sent me a long message and it said how they’re going to follow me and how they like me and are super interested,” Tuley-Tillman said. “I talked to him for a little bit.”

In the message, Warriner also told Tuley-Tillman to call him every couple days so they can start building a relationship with each other.

Tuley-Tillman doesn’t know much about Notre Dame as of now but is starting to educate himself about the program and school. He also recently received some mail from the Irish.

“It was just basically about the academics,” he said.

Nebraska assistant offensive line coach John Garrison has also been in touch with Tuley-Tillman recently. The Huskers invited Tuley-Tillman to their game against Iowa, but Lincoln is too far away for an unofficial visit he said.

Tuley-Tillman continues to keep in contact with Garrison, and, much like Notre Dame, was told to keep in contact every few days.

Oregon offensive line coach Steve Greatwood is another assistant to get in touch with Tuley-Tillman over the last several days.

“He said he just saw my film and likes it and they’re going to check me out,” Tuley-Tillman said of his short conversation with Greatwood.

An Illinois lean before Ron Zook was fired, Tuley-Tillman has been in contact with the Illini staff and is still waiting to see what happens.

Tuley-Tillman said Boise State, Illinois, Michigan, Missouri, Oklahoma State and Oregon comprise his early leaders.
