The waiting game continues for Jack Tuttle and Indiana.

On Thursday, prior to the Hoosiers’ first day of spring practice, head coach Tom Allen told reporters that there’s been no word from the NCAA on Tuttle’s eligibility for the 2019 season. Tuttle transferred to IU after spending half of the 2018 campaign at Utah.

Tuttle, a former four-star prospect out of high school, is the highest-rated quarterback ever to join Indiana’s football program. He would be immediately in the race to challenge Peyton Ramsey for the starting job in Bloomington, should he be granted his waiver.

Entering spring practice, Ramsey and Tuttle will split reps with the first unit, Allen told reporters. Michael Penix, who suffered a season-ending ACL injury a year ago, will be more limited through the spring.

Indiana is coming off back-to-back 5-7 seasons and is hoping to return to bowl eligibility in 2019. The Hoosiers will also have a new look offensively, as Kalen DeBoer steps in for Mike DeBord.

Tuttle’s eligibility status doesn’t really affect the Hoosiers through spring workouts. He’ll still be permitted to practice and provide competition to Ramsey over the next month or so. Still, Indiana would like an answer sooner rather than later.

The NCAA doesn’t seem to be in any rush, though.
