The Opening continued yesterday, and like day one, it was only quarterbacks and receivers/tight ends without any defenders. This means that quarterbacks can only be judged on their mechanics, accuracy, and arm strength and not on their ability to read a defense or how they react under pressure. Utah quarterback commit Jack Tuttle of San Marcos (Calif.) Mission Hills High School has performed well in the first two days, and he will have a chance to continue his strong play with the rest of the field being to compete today.
College football insider and Director of Scouting for 247Sports Barton Simmons was really high on Tuttle for the second day in a row. He ranked him No. 2 out of the 12 quarterbacks at the event behind only Justin Fields. On Tuttle, Simmons said this,
“Tuttle has been outstanding through two days. While others are going through the motions, every rep looks like he's taking it at game speed with game intensity. He's been accurate, has made some 'wow' throws and is totally on time and on-point computing his progressions. The Utah commit looks like the real deal.”
Simmons had rankings that differed vastly from Greg Biggins, National Recruiting Analyst for CBS Sports/Scout.com, and Blair Angulo College Football Recruiting Analyst, covering the Mountain and Island regions for Scout. Biggins and Angulo had their top five quarterbacks from day two, three of whom were outside the top five from Simmons (Tanner McKee, Devin Leary, and Dorian Thompson-Robinson), and they did not include Tuttle, though they did mention him as one they considered.
What this illustrates is how subject rankings from camps, especially in a setting that differs so much from an actual football game (no pads and no defense). What is not subjective however is that Tuttle is a stud. He is competing with and standing out amongst some of the best quarterbacks in the nation.
