On Tuesday afternoon, former Indiana quarterback Jack Tuttle announced on Twitter his intention to move to Michigan after four seasons with the Hoosiers.
The 23-year-old quarterback never featured prominently during his time with the Hoosiers, as he spent several seasons behind Michael Penix Jr. sat. This season he played the third string role behind Connor Bazelak and Dexter Williams II.
In his four seasons with the Hoosiers, Tuttle completed 104 of 182 passes for 801 yards with five touchdowns and six interceptions. He appeared in only one game this season, as Indiana hosted Penn State on November 5. He completed nine of twelve passes for 82 yards and a touchdown in a blowout loss at the hands of the Nittany Lions.
Tuttle will arrive in Ann Arbor as a low and will likely only see the field in waste time. JJ McCarthy will be the team’s starting quarterback next season, and junior-in-waiting Davis Warren will likely retain the backup role.
The signing of Tuttle can be seen as a replacement for Alan Bowman, who entered the transfer portal late last week. Bowman certainly didn’t break any records in his time at Michigan, but he was a low point that coaches were happy to have in case they needed him.
Tuttle’s four years of experience at Indiana will prove useful as he helps the two younger quarterbacks, McCarthy and Warren, develop into signal callers. He’ll add an extra element of knowledge and experience to a quarterback room that, quite frankly, isn’t the most experienced bunch out there.
