Former USC QB Max Wittek still weighing his options

Kirby Lee-US PRESSWIRE

Hawaii and Texas are the frontrunners for former USC QB Max Wittek.

Ex-USC Trojans quarterback Max Wittek is still sorting through his transfer options. Wittek announced he was leaving USC back in February and after taking visits to Texas, Louisville, Hawaii and others; Wittek is down to Texas and Hawaii.

Texas has some urgency to try to get Wittek on campus since quarterback David Ash fractured his left that'll require surgery. That injury will keep Ash out for the rest of spring and beyond, and his injury is thought to give the Longhorns a leg up to land Wittek. Plus, it is not as if Ash is a great quarterback for Texas last season, plus the Longhorns have new head coach Charlie Strong who is evaluating every position.

However, Wittek told CBSSports.com that the Ash's broken ankle will not have an affect on where he will transfer. Wittek enjoyed his visits to both Texas and Hawaii, and seems fond of playing at Texas and for Hawaii head coach Norm Chow.

A decision is likely going to come once Wittek finishes up the semester at USC, but Wittek also has not ruled out taking any other visits. To stay sharp Wittek has been working with his personal QB coach Steve Clarkson.

Hawaii is currently in spring practice and shuffling through various quarterbacks to see who would be their starter, but if Wittek is to come to the Rainbow Warriors he likely would be the Week 1 starter.
