Report: Hawaii expects former USC QB to join team

Max Wittek

The Hawai’i Warriors have plenty of experience at quarterback, but the team is still lacking in talent at the game’s most important position.

Max Wittek, a USC transfer, wasn’t able to enroll at Hawai’i earlier in the process due to a delay in his graduation, but the team anticipates he’ll be enrolled in the program soon.

The University of Texas was Wittek’s first choice after he decided to transfer, but the Longhorns backed away from the quarterback once they discovered the academic and timing issues involved.

Hawai’i then moved into the driver’s seat, particularly after Wittek visited the school.

“I feel great with coach (Norm) Chow,” Wittek said a month ago. “He’s awesome. He’s been so helpful through this whole process.”

If Wittek does eventually enroll at the University of Hawai’i, the graduate transfer should immediately enter a competition with sophomore Ikaika Woosley and senior Taylor Graham. Wittek will have missed precious practice and instructional time, but he’s a former four-star recruit with a big-time arm. If the Warriors’ staff can get him up to speed quickly, the team may have dramatically upgraded at quarterback.

    I don’t know if this post is updated but Wittek is joining UH Aug. 25 when the roster goes up to 105 as a walk on BUT has to sit out this year because he didn’t graduate in time to have two years of eligibility. So he only has one year left in 2015.

    Wittek would’ve joined them before summer ball began but he got a D in his last class required to graduate.. Lol
