The highest-rated quarterback in Indiana football history will be eligible to play immediately.
Former four-star quarterback Jack Tuttle transferred to Indiana from Utah in December and he has been granted his waiver for immediate eligibility, the school announced on Wednesday. Tuttle is a redshirt freshman and will have four seasons of eligibility at Indiana.
"We are very pleased for Jack and his family," Hoosiers head coach Tom Allen said in a statement. "We look forward to him competing this fall. We also appreciate the NCAA's assistance throughout this process."
Tuttle, an Elite 11 quarterback, was the No. 167 player and the No. 8 pro-style quarterback in the 2018 class.
At one time, Tuttle was recruited by Ryan Day at Ohio State. Though Tuttle never ended up in a Buckeye uniform, one of his teammates did. While on a recruiting trip to watch Tuttle, Day was impressed with now-Buckeye receiver Chris Olave, and quickly gave him an Ohio State offer.
The Buckeyes take on the Hoosiers on Sept. 14 this year, and with Tuttle granted eligibility, there's a good chance he will be Indiana's starting quarterback when Ohio State comes to town.
