Tom Allen’s backup quarterback Jack Tuttle has announced that he’ll be entering the transfer portal at the end of the season. Thanks to the new transfer windows for graduate transfers, he’ll be sticking around.

Indy Star’s Dustin Dopirak and Zach Osterman posted Allen’s comments.

Tuttle has no reason to leave the team during the middle of the season now that the deadline to enter the transfer portal is May 1 for fall and winter sports. Allen stated that he could see  instances like this becoming more common.

Connor Bazelak has been the starting quarterback for Indiana this season. Tuttle has not played in a game this season, but Allen expects him to play when called upon by the Hoosiers. Tuttle will still be the backup quarterback, according to Allen.

Tuttle came to Indiana after spending time with Utah in 2018. He has played in 21 total games for Indiana and earned his degree last season.

Allen will definitely be glad that a player like Tuttle is staying with the team instead of leaving instantly.
