Reports: Former USC QB Max Wittek to visit Texas

Sun Bowl Football AP

Former USC quarterback Max Wittek, who announced a week ago that he would be transferring to another school after graduating this spring, has made plans to visit Texas, according to reports on Wednesday from Orangebloods.com and USCFootball.com.

Wittek, who just finished his redshirt sophomore season with the Trojans, has no plans as of yet to visit other schools. The former four-star recruit from the class of 2011 threw for 600 yards with three touchdowns and six interceptions in his two seasons at Troy.

Would he make a bid for immediate playing time at Texas? It’s certainly possible, since the Longhorns will run a pro-style offense and Wittek has experience in a similar scheme. Because Wittek will be graduating from USC this spring, he would be eligible to play right away in Austin.

Beating out incumbents David Ash and Tyrone Swoopes would be difficult but, with a new coach in place in Charlie Strong, Wittek might have a decent shot at winning the starting job.

    If Wittek can stand up straight in Austin, he can start. The tsips need a live body to take a snap.

    After Charlie Strong got his teeth kicked in by Dr. Sumlin, he’d pray for a live body….even a live body Lane Kiffin rejected.

    Wittek has a phenomenal arm and is a great kid. I’ll be rooting for this him no matter where he goes. Fight on Max.

    aglawman-
    Being “rejected” by Kiffin when he was HC at SC isn’t exactly a negative (see Buck Allen). Kiffin displayed an amazing ability to not get results from a pretty good team.

    Wittek may or may not succeed if he attends Texas, but a lack of success under Kiffin should be considered an anomaly. Fight on, Max.

    Call me in 12 months when Wittek is at Sam Houston State.

    Texas hired a dud who can’t recruit. Strong will get his teeth kicked in for for two more classes until Red McCombs gets his way and hires a real coach.

    Book it.
