Arkansas Lands Pledge From Britto Tutt

Arkansas began spring practice on Tuesday also added a pledge from 2016 cornerback Britto Tutt (6-3, 185) of Ventura, Calif., College.

After watching Arkansas practice on Tuesday, Ventura, Calif., College cornerback Britto Tutt decided he has seen enough to know where he wanted to spend the next few years.

Tutt (6-3, 185) committed to the Razorbacks while on his official visit, which began Monday afternoon and will last through Wednesday afternoon.

“My strengths are that I’m very athletic, I’m a very physical corner, I like face-to-face man-to-man, I recognize plays really fast and I am a fast learner,” Tutt said Monday before beginning his official visit.

He adds a much needed corner to the 2016 recruiting class as Arkansas did not land one on national signing day and currently has one cornerback academically ineligible in Cornelius Floyd.

Tutt,  an Augusta, Ga., native and  full qualifier out of high school, matriculated to junior college as a freshman in hopes of landing better offers.

He will have four years to play three and will come to Fayetteville early this summer.

He had 40 tackles and four interceptions, six pass break ups and two tackles for lost yardage and chose Arkansas over Oregon State. 

Arkansas and Oregon State both offered Tutt about two weeks ago with Razorback head coach Bret Bielema and new secondary coach Paul Rhodes leading the charge. 

“You can’t come into a better situation," Tutt said.

Ventura (8-3) finished up the season by downing Orange Coast College, 53-39, in the Beach Bowl. 

Arkansas sees Tutt as a cornerback, but he believes he can play every spot in the secondary.

“I see myself doing more,” Tutt said. “As a matter of fact, I like doing more, but that will be the coaches decision.”
