Wisconsin football recruiting: Badgers offer 2018 QB Jack Tuttle

New, 8 comments

The Badgers get in early on the San Marcos, Calif., four-star quarterback.

One of the things you find if you're looking at recruiting classes moving forward: quarterbacks become more integral centerpieces, and they're committing earlier and earlier. For schools, making a decision on who they decide to offer gains in importance.

This is why the Wisconsin Badgers made a major move in deciding to offer 247Sports four-star quarterback Jack Tuttle from San Marcos (Mission Hills), Calif. Tuttle announced the offer on Twitter Monday night.

For the Badgers, Tuttle is an offer that just makes sense. He's a strong-armed, pro-style quarterback who's able to make all the throws. The first on the highlight reel above is a thing of beauty, and he can sling it through some tight windows as well. Tuttle also adds mobility in the pocket, though you're not offering him for his ability to get chunks of yards with his legs.

Wisconsin's offer came on an impressive day of interest for the 6'4, 198-pound prospect, as he landed offers from both Colorado and LSU as well. Tuttle also previously received offers from Nevada, San Diego State, Utah, Vanderbilt and Washington State. Sure, LSU is a dangerous opponent on the recruiting trail, but it wrapped up its class of 2018 quarterback question almost two years ago when it landed Zadock Dinkelmann from Somerset, Texas. The five-star name is the nephew of BYU legend Ty Detmer and provides a similar frame to Tuttle.

Obviously, there's no guarantee that LSU won't land multiple quarterbacks, but the Badgers do have an in, as 2017 wide receiver commit Cade Green is a former high school teammate of Tuttle's and took to Twitter to celebrate his friend's offer.
