Washington State wasting no time on quarterback chase two classes down the road; Jack Tuttle is latest sophomore QB to be offered

WE’VE BEEN SAYING since roughly 1999 that the recruiting timetable keeps getting moved up, and another reminder of that arrived Thursday night.

Scout.com analyst Greg Biggins reported that Washington State has offered Jack Tuttle — a quarterback out of San Marcos, Calif., who won’t graduate from high school for another two years.

“A smooth pocket passer who shows nice command and a lot of poise,” Biggins says of Tuttle (pictured above).

But here’s the most notable part of this development: Tuttle is the fourth known QB in the 2018 recruiting cycle with a standing offer from the Cougars. Yes, these are current high school sophomores we’re talking about.

And the Cougars aren’t alone in offering them.

Collectively among the four they share 28 known scholarship offers.

For Tuttle, the Cougars are his fourth offer, along with Utah, San Diego State and Nevada.

Cameron Rising, a Newbury, Park, Calif., product, sets the pace with 15 known offers.

Brevin White of West Hills, Calif., has two offers (Arizona State and Washington) besides the Cougars, and Colson Yankoff of Coeur d’Alene has five others (Boise State, Texas Tech,  Iowa State, Idaho and Montana State).

Counting every position on the field, WSU has made 23 known offers to 2018 prospects. Here’s the list.

For perspective on how aggressive a pace that is, consider that for the class that will be signed this coming February, the 2017 class, the Cougars have made approximately 70 known offers to date.

AS FOR THOSE FOUR 2018 quarterbacks, here’s how they stack up:
