Waiting for the NCAA to do anything can be very frustrating. A day after Indiana head coach Tom Allen said he had “zero control” over the situation, the Hoosiers patience has paid off. On Wednesday morning Indiana’s football program announced the Jack Tuttle had been granted a waiver from the NCAA in a press release (below).

“The Indiana football program announced Wednesday that the NCAA has approved a waiver for quarterback Jack Tuttle, which grants him immediate eligibility. The redshirt freshman transferred from Utah in December and has four seasons of eligibility remaining.
 
"We are very pleased for Jack and his family," head football coach Tom Allen said. "We look forward to him competing this fall. We also appreciate the NCAA's assistance throughout this process."
 
A four-star prospect by Rivals and 247Sports, Tuttle garnered a place in the 2017 Elite 11 Finals in addition to The Opening. He was ranked the No. 4 pro-style quarterback nationally by Rivals, the No. 5 pro-style quarterback nationally by 247Sports and the No. 13 player in California by 247Sports.”

Tuttle has been a full participant in spring practice.
