A four-star prospect by 247Sports, Tuttle was ranked as the No. 5 pro-style quarterback. At 6-foot-4 and 211 pounds, Tuttle has all of the tools to be a high level starter.
In his senior year of high school, Tuttle completed over 69 percent of his passes (205-295) and threw for 3,171 yards with 41 touchdowns and only four interceptions, while also running for 207 yards and a couple of touchdowns.
Paired with new offensive coordinator Kalen DeBoer, the upside for Tuttle is extremely high. With good showings in spring practice as of now, the quarterback battle has officially begun between Tuttle and Peyton Ramsey.
After missing the bowl season in each of the past two years, Tuttle could be the quarterback to lead them back to the postseason.
