Dismissed Michigan Wolverines offensive lineman Logan Tuley-Tillman has interest in the Texas Longhorns and wants to visit in the near future, according to a report from 247Sports.
Tuley-Tillman holds an offer from the Houston Cougars and will stop by head coach Tom Herman's program while in Texas and also has interest in Louisville, Ole Miss, Texas Tech, and Washington State. Another recent list of schools connected to the 6'7, 309-pounder did not include the Longhorns.
A former consensus four-star prospect and 2013 Under Armour All-American, Tuley-Tillman redshirted in 2013 and then appeared in only one game in 2014 before encountering legal trouble last fall that resulted in his dismissal from the Michigan program.
He's pleaded not guilty to three felony charges related to a consensual sexual encounter with another Michigan student. The charges are two counts of capturing/distributing an image of an unclothed person and one count of using computers to commit a crime and he was supposed to go to trial early in January, but had a scheduling conflict that caused a delay.
According to the Detroit Free-Press, Tuley-Tillman admitted to being drunk and high at the time of the encounter and then allegedly took two short videos of himself having sex with her. Tuley-Tillman later apologized to police for the incident, said he did not remember filming the video, and admitted to having a drinking problem that he wanted to address immediately.
The addition of drugs to the equation and the fact that his alleged actions would violate two of Texas head coach Charlie Strong's five core values would seem to raise some serious questions about whether the Longhorns are even interested.
In fact, it seems that Texas is not interested:

Regardless of the Tuley-Tillman's eventual guilt or innocence in a court of law, taking such a trouble player doesn't make sense for Texas, even though the program could use all the instant-impact tackles it can find.
