Westlake (Calif.) receiver Cody Tuttle took an unofficial visit out to Nevada a week ago, but waited for an offer.
That offer came this week and on Friday, Nevada got good news from the versatile Tuttle, who committed to the Pack.
“Academically and athletically it just felt right,” Tuttle said. “I love the college, the coaches and the professional manner in which the program is run. I can’t ask for more in a university. I am really looking forward to my senior year, but I can’t wait to attend Nevada.”
Tuttle had built a good strong rapport with Nevada assistant coach Scott Baumgartner.
"He was really cool and exactly what I'm looking for in a coach," said Tuttle.
Tuttle will head to Nevada and play a hybrid role in their Pistol offense.
“I believe he made an excellent choice,” Westlake Head Coach Jim Benkert said. “He is unquestionably ready for the next level and has the potential to be an exceptional student-athlete in college. Nevada-Reno is definitely fortunate to have him.”
The 6-3, 220-pound Tuttle was a big part of the Warriors CIF-SS Northwest Division runner-up squad last season.
He and teammate Nelson Spruce formed one of the best WR tandems in Southern California.
Tuttle had 34 receptions for 484 yards and three touchdowns last fall.
He also boasted offers from Harvard, Princeton and Western Michigan.
