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. So far though, he’s had a solid senior season. Currently, he projects to be a borderline second round candidate for the 2021 draft.
