"On the Hoof: Tall defensive lineman with wide shoulders and a lower body that is proportionate. He definitely has the base to play either side of the ball. Physically, he looks more like a third-year college player than a current high school prospect.
Needs Improvement: Being recruited as a strongside defensive end, but is fighting Mother Nature that will most likely project him as a 290-to-300 pound defensive tackle. Tuitt needs to work on pad level at the point of attack because he is tall and a huge target for offensive linemen to get their hands on.
Most Impressive: This massive athlete can really run as he is very light on his feet. He is also a very versatile prospect that could project as defensive tackle or offensive tackle at the next level. Tuitt has excellent overall body structure and very little bad body weight.
Conclusion: Versatility is the key to long-term success, if he is open-minded and just willing to do what is best for his team he could see early playing time. Look for him to start out as a defensive end but eventually grow into a monster-sized defensive tackle similar to Marcus Stroud or Richard Seymour.
