Jeremiah Tilmon Chooses Mizzou Over Illini

Local Sports

All-State center Jeremiah Tilmon, who initially signed with Illinois in November, announced Monday he will play at Missouri next season.

Tilmon, a top 50 recruit nationally, was given his release in April shortly after the Illini hired Brad Underwood to replace the fired John Groce. The 6-foot-11 center is from East St. Louis, Ill., the same home town as new Missouri coach Cuonzo Martin.
