Jeremiah Tilmon is a strong, athletic big man that can garner numerous points and rebounds in the paint. He is a physical player that can bang in the middle, and he can score both in the post as well as on hustle plays.
He had a strong start to the season against Iowa State as a freshman, but he’s been inconsistent throughout his collegiate career. He’s had a tendency to fade into the background too much at times, and he will need to improve his rebounding, and cut down on the number of fouls he commits for him to be able to stay on the floor for longer stretches. Currently, he projects to be a long shot to be drafted in 2021.
