TTB Rating:

Tuttle enrolled at Utah way back in 2018 before deciding that was a bad idea, and then he transferred to Indiana for the past four years, which . . . I guess he was there for a couple decent Indiana years, but generally going to Bloomington is a bad idea if you’re a football player. On the plus side for him, he was on the only Indiana team of the last 763 years to beat Michigan, which was in The Year That Shall Not Be Mentioned.

(Pssssst…it was 2020.)

Tuttle spent last season as the backup to Missouri transfer Connor Bazelak, but shortly after being inserted in place of an injured Bazelak, he was injured himself, giving way to third-stringer Dexter Williams II, who was bad at throwing but still good enough to beat Michigan State. It was a mess of a situation. Tuttle completed 9/12 passes for 82 yards and touchdown against PSU in his only action.

Overall, Tuttle completed 104/182 passes for 901 yards, 5 touchdowns, and 6 interceptions during his career as a Hoosier. He looked gutsy in the spring game, and he can run a little bit, but he’s not exactly a star in the making. At this point it seems like he will end up as the #2 quarterback, but I would not be surprised if Davis Warren is pushing him in practice enough to get a shot at being the primary backup. That being said, Tuttle was a team captain at Indiana and seemed to have some moxie. I think Michigan will win enough blowout games this season to see the #2 guy get a good chunk of snaps. Do you get Davis Warren some seasoning because he has two more seasons of eligibility? Or do you let the “more proven” commodity play just in case you need him for an emergency situation down the stretch, even though this is his final year in college?

Only time will tell.

Prediction: Backup quarterback
