BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — Indiana quarterback Jack Tuttle has been granted a waiver by the NCAA and will be eligible to play next season.
The redshirt freshman transferred from Utah in December and will have four years of eligibility remaining. Hoosiers coach Tom Allen issued a statement saying he "looks forward" to seeing Tuttle compete for the starting job this fall and thanked the NCAA.
The 6-foot-4, 211-pound California prep star was widely regarded as one of the nation's top 15 quarterbacks in the 2018 recruiting class. Allen has not disclosed why the Hoosiers sought a waiver for Tuttle, who did not play in a game for the Utes.
Last year's starter, Peyton Ramsey, has two years of eligibility remaining. Michael Penix Jr., Ramsey's backup, redshirted in 2018 and has four years remaining.
