Gonzaga’s Killian Tillie is expected to return to school, source told @Stadium. HUGE news for the Zags. If he can stay healthy, could be a guy who moves into first-round lock conversation a year from now.

Tillie emerged as a sophomore two seasons ago when he averaged 12.9 points, 5.9 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.0 blocks per game. He only played in 15 games last season though due to an ankle injury.
Tillie comes from France and has represented his country on their junior national teams, playing in under 16, under 18, and under 19 competitions. Both of the 6-foot-10 forward’s parents were professional volleyball players.
