Missouri announced the signing of forward Jeremiah Tilmon of East St. Louis, Ill.
The 6-foot-10, 235-pound big man averaged 15.3 points, 11.0 rebounds and 4.0 blocks per game. He previously committed to Illinois but then decommitted after the coaching change.
“It’s truly exciting to keep a young man like Jeremiah at home with Mizzou Basketball,” coach Cuonzo Martin said. “Jeremiah, as a player and person, possesses the type of skill and presence we’d like to become a staple of this program. We feel that he has the ability to become a game-changing presence on both ends of the floor. His parents, April and Jeremiah, Sr., raised a son who we feel can really flourish at the University of Missouri.”
