USC QB Max Wittek won't graduate on time, will not transfer

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Hawaii will not be getting USC quarterback Max Wittek, and it is not because he is choosing another school.

USC quarterback Max Wittek was deciding between the Texas Longhorns and Hawaii Warriors for his final year of eligibility, however things have taken a turn. There were reports that Wittek had off the field issues to why he would not go to Texas, but that was incorrect.

The latest news is that Wittek can not transfer to Texas or Hawaii because he will not graduate from USC until December, per the Hawaii Star-Advertiser. Had Wittek graduated we would have been able to transfer to any FBS school without sitting out a year and still have two years to play two. Wittek could still transfer to a FBS program but he would lose a year of eligibility by sitting out and then have one year left to play.

He can go to a FCS school or lower and play right away, or graduate in December join any FBS team and spend spring and one season with that new team.

Hawaii was holding onto a scholarship for Wittek just in case he was going to join their program. The quarterback situation is far from co-starts on Hawaii's post-spring depth chart. Taylor Graham was held back in spring while he recovered from shoulder surgery. Then there are two newcomers in former Colorado State recruit Beau Reilly, he returned from a church mission last year, and then there is Eric Prater and he will join the team this summer after he completed his duties with the Army.
