“It’s all part of the journey! Excited to announce I am committing to New Mexico State! #Aggieup,” Tillman posted of his announcement on social media, accompanied by him wearing a No. 2 NMSU jersey.

Tillman, a Detroit native, was the 2019 Pac-12 Sixth Man of the Year as a sophomore for the Utes, where he started 15 of 31 games and averaged 10.5 points per game on 43.9% shooting.
He transferred to UNLV and the NCAA granted him immediate eligibility to play for first-year UNLV head coach T.J. Otzelberger. Injuries prevented Tillman from ever finding a rhythm with the Rebels, starting 11 of the 25 games he played and averaging 10.1 points and 4.7 rebounds on 37.5% shooting. In his lone game against the Lobos, he had 7 points on 3-of-12 shooting.
It is unclear if Tillman will be a graduate transfer, immediately eligible for the Aggies, or if he will have to sit out a year per NCAA transfer rules.
