Illinois commit Jeremiah Tilmon returns to the court following offseason shoulder surgery

Welcome to the Orange Minute for Friday, September 16.

Jeremiah Tilmon has officially returned to practice! While these post workouts have likely been going on for a little while now, Illinois fans got their first glimpse at the five-star commit since his shoulder surgery in late May.

Tilmon suffered a dislocation during the 2016 DICK'S Sporting Goods National title game, and his recovery from the procedure caused him to miss the entire AAU season.

[Fleck] has recruited the highest ranked class in the Mid-American Conference for three straight years, and one reason the Broncos are 3 1/2 point favorites over the Illini on Saturday is that they’ve strung together higher-ranked recruiting classes.
