Cuonzo Martin landed another ESPN 100 prospect at Missouri on Monday, with four-star center Jeremiah Tilmon signing with the Tigers. Tilmon, a 6-foot-10 center from East St. Louis High School (Illinois), originally signed with Illinois under head coach John Groce. When Groce was fired and replaced by Brad Underwood, Tilmon requested his release from the Fighting Illini in early April. Tilmon kept his recruitment very quiet in the weeks since receiving his release, although Missouri emerged as the early leader because of his connection to Martin. Martin is from East St. Louis as well and still has family ties to the area.
