It appears that Logan Tuley-Tillman‘s long odyssey will bring him back to the Midwest after a flirtation with the Great Northwest.
On Twitter Wednesday night, the erstwhile Michigan offensive lineman announced that he has decided to move on with his life at Akron and play his college football for Terry Bowden‘s Zips. The announcement comes five months after Tuley-Tillman appeared ticketed for Washington State, and three months after he put a sordid legal chapter of his life in the rear-view.

In September of last year, Michigan announced that Tuley-Tillman had been dismissed from the football program for “conduct unacceptable for a Michigan student-athlete.” A month later, it was revealed that the offensive lineman had been charged with three felonies stemming from a Sept. 4 incident in which he was accused of filming a sex act with a woman without her knowledge.
Tuley-Tillman was a four-star member of Brady Hoke‘s second-to-last UM recruiting class, rated as the No. 24 offensive tackle in the country and the No. 7 player at any position in the state of Illinois. He played in one game as a redshirt freshman in 2014, the season opener against Appalachian State.
Prior to his dismissal, he had been listed as the No. 2 left tackle and played in the 2015 opener.
In January, Tuley-Tillman announced that he would be transferring to Wazzu. However, the lineman was said to still be considering other schools, including Houston and Ole Miss. Because he graduated from Michigan in May, Tuley-Tillman will be eligible to play immediately in 2016. He will also have two years of eligibility remaining.
