Tom Allen has just landed the top quarterback prospect in Indiana program history.
On Monday, the Hoosiers received a commitment from former 4-star and ex-Utah quarterback Jack Tuttle. His decision was announced through a program release.
It’s a huge boost for Allen and the Hoosiers with the Early Signing Period just two days away. Tuttle was a member of the Utes for just one season.

Tuttle was ranked as the No. 8 pro-style quarterback out of high school and was the No. 167 player out of the 2018 class. He had several offers out of high school, including Alabama, Wisconsin, USC, LSU and Nebraska.
It’s a bit of a homecoming for Tuttle, who was born in Indianapolis. His father, Jay Tuttle, was a former walk-on for the Hoosiers from 1986-1989.
The addition of Tuttle gives the Hoosiers some much-needed depth at the position. He’ll join returning starter Peyton Ramsey and backup Michael Penix Jr. in the quarterback room in Bloomington.
Prior to Tuttle’s announcement, Indiana had the B1G’s 10th-ranked recruiting class and was slotted 41st nationally.
