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.
