Jeremiah Tilmon dominates the paint when he steps on the basketball court and appears poised to be one of the best high school big men in the country. The 6’11, 16 year old high school sophomore from East St. Louis, IL is a TRUE big man that coaches covet.
In a tumultuous season in which his high school coach was suspended, Tilmon averaged over 11 points, 7 rebounds and 4 blocks for his East St. Louis Flyers (Class of 2017).
Playing up with the St Louis Eagles 17U (13-4) in the EYBL this Spring, Tilmon averages 8 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.2 blocks in 16 minutes per game.
Tilmon displays his athleticism, and ability to finish near the rim with ease in these highlights from his sophomore year of high school as he competed across the midwest.
Considered the top prospect in Illinois (regardless of class), Indiana, Illinois, Missouri and Kansas State have already offered Tilmon, but many more are expected to follow.
