Westlake (Calif.) receiver Cody Tuttle took his first official visit this past weekend, tripping to Nevada, where he committed in the spring.
"The visit was cool and everything went great," said Tuttle. "I was able to spend a lot of time with the players and coaches in meetings, practices and team meals as they prepared for their game against Hawaii."
Tuttle said getting an up close look at the team was a highlight.
"I really enjoyed getting a firsthand look at the way they interacted with and coached the players firsthand," said Tuttle.
He also enjoyed getting a chance to talk with Nevada head coach Chris Ault.
"I enjoyed getting to know the coaches better and I was especially impressed with Coach Ault," said Tuttle. "You can tell he is someone who not only cares about the football program, but cares about his university and his players. He and his coaches came across as an honest and sincere people and I could tell the players respected them and liked them too."
Tuttle was also able to check out the academic side of things.
"I also had an opportunity to meet one of the journalism professors. I plan on majoring in sports journalism and it was really cool to talk with him about their program," said Tuttle.
And seeing Nevada play on Saturday nailed down the Pack for Tuttle.
"What really sealed the deal for me was watching the game on Saturday night against Hawaii and seeing how Nevada uses their H-back in that pistol offense. I was born for that position and I am more excited than ever to become a part of that offense. It was a great visit and I look forward to signing day," said Tuttle.
Now, Tuttle and his Westlake teammates will start the CIF-SS Northern Division playoffs, where they're the top seed, and try to keep their State Bowl hopes alive.
"For now it is time to focus on practice this week and the games that lie ahead for Westlake. We won the Marmonte League Championship last Thursday and with the first round of the playoffs coming up Friday it’s time to take care of business and finish my senior year strong," said Tuttle.
