Willie Tuitama QB 6'3 220 Arizona

By: Robert Davis

Tuitama started four games as a freshman, throwing for 1,105 yards and nine scores with five picks. He missed two games as a sophomore to concussions, but he finished the season with 1,335 yards and seven touchdowns to go with six interceptions. Tuitama started to put it all together a nd be a real threat as a junior. He threw for a career high 3,683 yards while completing 62.4% of his passes for 28 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. He closed out his career with another solid season, finishing with 3,093 yards passing with a 64.9 completion rate and 23 touchdowns with just eight interceptions.

Strengths

Tuitama is a pocket passer that has demonstrated the ability to carry an offense at times. He has decent size and the toughness to take hits in the pocket. He has a very good arm and is capable of making any throw needed at the next level. Tuitama has continued to improve during his career, and has accuracy is the main reason. He shows good enough mobility to elude the rush and buy more time by escaping the pocket.

Weaknesses

Consistency has been an issue with Tuitama. He has been erratic throughout his career with his accuracy, even with the improvements he has made over his career. He also makes some questionable decisions at times. He tries to do too much at times and will force the ball into coverage. There is also the issue of multiple concussions he suffered during his sophomore year.

Future

Tuitama is a prospect that arrived at Arizona with big expectations. Even though the program didnít improve as much as anticipated, he developed into a solid signal caller. He has improved over his career, and is worth a shot on day two to see if he continues to grow as a passer. He has the tools and could be a steal in a few seasons if some team has some patience.
