Donnie Tillman, a 6-foot-7 forward who played this past season at UNLV and two seasons with the Utah Utes prior to that, announced Monday he is transferring to play for the New Mexico State Aggies.

“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.
