The Utes highest rated recruit leaves the program
His career in Salt Lake ends with paperwork. The freshman quarterback out of Mission Hills (California) High School will not play a down for the Utes. According to UteZone, Jack Tuttle will transfer from Utah.
Having not played a snap for the Utes, Tuttle will presumably enter the crowded transfer market. Due to the Pac-12’s restrictive intra-conference transfer rules, it’s unlikely he’ll switch to a school in the league. Similar to other conferences, the Pac-12 requires athletes to lose a season of eligibility.

During his recruitment, the highly touted recruit received offers from Alabama, Arizona, Arizona State, Boston College, Colorado State, Indiana, LSU, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, Oregon State, San Diego State, USC, Vanderbilt, Washington State, and Wisconsin.
The move comes with the Utes readying for a Pac-12 South matchup against USC where they’ll host another highly touted quarterback – Jayden Daniels of Cajon High School (California). Currently, Utah’s scholarship signal callers are Tyler Huntley, Jason Shelley, and Drew Lisk.
