Former USC QB Max Wittek still wants to go to Hawaii

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Will former USC quarterback Max Wittek choose to walk-on at Hawaii?

Former USC quarterback Max Wittek really wants to come to Hawaii and play in the 2015 season. Wittek says that there is a "good possibility" that he will walk-on at Hawaii, per the Honolulu Star-Advertiser. After failing to graduate this summer, Wittek must now sit out a year and have one year to play one, after he redshirts in 2014.

By not graduating, it scared team off and two weeks ago Hawaii was not sure if they were going to give the quarterback even a scholarship offer.

Despite a scholarship not being on the table, head coach Norm Chow and Wittek have a good relationship so far during this process. Chow would really like to get an experienced quarterback to come into town and being a walk-on means that Hawaii does not need to use a scholarship on Wittek.

There are five current quarterbacks on the Hawaii roster for this upcoming, 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. Plus, there is Ikaika Woolsey who will be a senior in 2015.

Texas, and to a lesser extent Louisville, were in talks for Wittek but now it seems that those talks have died down and it seems Hawaii or bust for Wittek.
