Utah’s highest rated commit in their 2018 recruiting class is San Marcos (Calif.) Mission Hills four-star quarterback Jack Tuttle. Tuttle committed to Utah back in December. Tuttle has been solid on his commitment even with powerhouse Alabama extending the talented California passer extending him an offer. Tuttle is competing this weekend at the Elite 11. After day one, Tuttle is receiving praise from many in the recruiting industry.
247Sports writer Luke Stampini included Tuttle as one of the top 11 performers from day one at No. 9 saying:
“Utah commit Jack Tuttle flashed a live arm that was able to get the ball to his receivers quickly. The 6-foot-4, 195-pounder put the ball on his receivers regularly, but the routes that allowed him to reach back and rip the football — deep outs, cover-2 hole shots, etc. — is where he excelled the most.”
There are five 247Sports Composite quarterbacks competing in the event, and yet Tuttle was called a top five prospect by several people.
Obviously a lot of good players at the Elite 11 finals, but Utah commit Jack Tuttle really stood out. https://t.co/L03VyPJ8TW— Kyle Bonagura (@BonaguraESPN) June 3, 2017
Kyle Bonagura of ESPN.com praised Tuttle, saying:
“There is obviously a lot of good players at the Elite 11 finals, but one guy who really stood out today was Utah commit Jack Tuttle. He was smooth in everything he did, delivered accurate balls with tight spirals and was easily one of the five best performers of the day.”
