The Indiana University football program received big news from the NCAA on Wednesday.
Quarterback Jack Tuttle, who transferred from the University of Utah to Indiana in December has been cleared to play this fall and will have four seasons of eligibility remaining.
Tuttle was born in Indianapolis and is the son of former IU walk-on kicker Jay Tuttle.
A former four-star recruit, Tuttle was one of the top ten rated quarterbacks in the country in the class of 2017. His offers included Alabama, LSU, Wisconsin and Nebraska.
The NCAA waiver sets up what should be a great quarterback competition between Tuttle, incumbent starter Peyton Ramsey, and Michael Penix.
Tuttle has been working with the team throughout the spring.
The full release from IU follows:
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – The Indiana football program announced Wednesday that the NCAA has approved a waiver for quarterback Jack Tuttle, which grants him immediate eligibility. The redshirt freshman transferred from Utah in December and has four seasons of eligibility remaining.
“We are very pleased for Jack and his family,” head football coach Tom Allen said. “We look forward to him competing this fall. We also appreciate the NCAA’s assistance throughout this process.”
A four-star prospect by Rivals and 247Sports, Tuttle garnered a place in the 2017 Elite 11 Finals in addition to The Opening. He was ranked the No. 4 pro-style quarterback nationally by Rivals, the No. 5 pro-style quarterback nationally by 247Sports and the No. 13 player in California by 247Sports.
