USC's Max Wittek still considering Hawaii

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Despite being ineligible to play in the fall, former USC quarterback Max Wittek is considering transferring to Hawaii.

Former USC Trojans quarterback Max Wittek is still looking for a new home in 2014 even though he will have to sit out a year since he was unable to get the credits needed to graduate in the summer which would have allowed him to play immediately.

Wittek still has plans to transfer to a FBS program and Hawaii is still considered to be a frontrunner, per Stephen Tsai of the Honolulu Star-Advertiser. By not graduating, Wittek will use his redshirt year while sitting out the 2014 season, and then have one year to play in 2015.

However, Hawaii may not be interested in adding Wittek since the Warriors are liking who they have under center for the next two seasons. There are five current quarterbacks on the roster for this year, and while they'll be losing a pair of fifth-year seniors in Taylor Graham and Jeremy Higgins, they will also be getting former Elite 11 quarterback Aaron Zwahlen, who is returning from a two-year LDS church mission, for the 2015 season.

Wittek was an attractive prospect had he graduated which would have given him two years to play two, but now with Wittek having to sit a year it makes the decision for the Warriors to give him a scholarship much more difficult.

Texas and Louisville have been in the mix to land Wittek ever since he first intended to transfer, but not being able to graduate might have scared off those schools.
