I'm curious what the story is here. The kid clearly didn't think he was gonna play at Bama, left for dumpster fire at ASU which is very surprising for a kid from Alabama imo. Figured he would stay in the South.
Then he can't even crack the 2 deep at ASU and got zero PT this year. He's 6'5'' and throws a nice deep ball. Mobility is low but could be a Coan type of player. Would be nice to have someone who could throw more than 25 yards.
He's a Senior with 2 years left I believe.
I don't think so.
NC State quarterback Devin Leary was the 2022 ACC preseason player of the year in the ACC before getting injured this season.
He's been reportedly linked to Notre Dame already.
I would think he'd be on the top of Freeman's list of candidates.
going back to 2019. He was a 4/5 star depending on ranking service. Put up crazy stats in Nevada. He's a local kid, so I'm well aware of his background and had conversation with his High School Principal ( chance meeting) after the ND commitment. Solid kid. Might be some mutual interest.
Could have 2-3 years of Eligibility left.
Slightly worse numbers than Pyne in a system also built on the run game.
Although ND I believe had previously followed “only grad transfer” route…he’s already self selected a legitimate academic institution once….
He is inaccurate and turnover prone with a low completion percentage. Sort of like a Wimbush type.
Now available on the portal
And cue the Tuttle jokes.
Nice offer list out of high school
He stepped in for Michael Penix (injury) in late 2020 and beat Wisconsin in Madison. He started the bowl game vs Ole Miss but wasn't effective. Started the 2021 season behind Penix again, but Penix went down with another injury and Tuttle took over. Not long before he himself was injured behind IU's porous offensive line.
He apparently was leading out of fall camp to be the starter but staff went with incoming transfer Connor Bazelak (Missouri). Bazelak went down with injury and Tuttle got a start before he was hurt again.
It's unfair to characterize Tuttle as injury prone. He has arm talent but his offensive line has been dreadful 2031-present. That being said, he hasn't really improved and he isn't particularly mobile. If he was more accurate or had a stronger arm he might have a chance but I'm inclined to believe there will be higher upside options in the portal.
I'm an IU football fan and have always been hopeful for Tuttle to get his chance and flourish but it just hasn't come to pass. Great teammate too, elected captain this season. He announced mid-season he'd enter the portal but stayed with the team through the season for his teammates.
Pretty pedestrian looking QB. But that's with IU's roster.
but you can't really blame them; guys are declaring for the portal and/or entering it at huge numbers right now.
We'll see where things fall.
