USC QB Max Wittek looking at Hawaii, others for possible landing spot

USC quarterback Max Wittek is transferring from USC and he has Hawaii on his list.


The Hawaii Warriors quarterback situation has been well documented for it being a position of weakness due to injuries, and just overall under performing. Well, there could be another quarterback on its way to the Islands in USC's Max Wittek.

Wittek plans on graduating from USC at the end of this semester and then transferring to another school. A visit has already been made by Wittek to Texas and he also has plans to look at Pitt, Louisville and Hawaii. By graduating this spring, Wittek will be eligible right away and has two years of eligibility remaining.

Texas and Louisville both have new head coaches and the Longhorns have had their own issues at quarterback, and the Cardinal are needing to replace Teddy Bridgewater. Hawaii's quarterback situation is wide open, so what harm would it be to have a new quarterback to compete for the starting job.

Wittek is a former top-100, and four-star player, out of the high school and in two seasons at USC, Wittek completed 50 of 95 passes for 600 yards with three touchdowns and six interceptions. He has talent but he has been passed on the depth chart by Cody Kessler, so he decided to move on.

Hawaii is a well-known place for transfers to land and most recently Taylor Graham came to Hawaii from Ohio State, but that has not worked out that well so far. Wittek has a lot of talent and more than likely would be the top choice to start at quarterback for Hawaii, but he would not come to Hawaii until the summer and miss out on spring camp.

Wittek could still overtake the other multitude of quarterbacks on Hawaii's roster but it will be tough to do so in just two weeks of fall camp.
