Former USC quarterback Max Wittek visited Texas this past weekend and told Orangebloods.com afterward that the visit ‘exceeded expectations.’
The 6-foot-4, 240-pounder is transferring from USC following his graduation this spring. He is considering the Longhorns, as well as Louisville, Hawaii and TCU.
But Texas has clearly given Wittek something to think about.
While Wittek said he wouldn’t even say he’s leaning toward Texas, he said he wasn’t sure what his plans were for taking visits to Louisville, Hawaii or TCU (other schools he has listed as being under consideration).
“Everything about my trip (to Texas) was awesome,” Wittek said. “From the coaches to the players, the school, the campus – it all probably exceeded what I thought it would be.”
Wittek told Orangebloods.com before the trip he needed to feel a strong connection to the coaches, and that happened, he said.
Wittek was apparently impressed by coach Charlie Strong and offensive coordinator Shawn Watson and he has familiarity with new Longhorns running backs coach Tommie Robinson, who was on the USC staff last season.
Wittek threw for 600 yards with three touchdown passes in his Trojan career. If he transfers to Texas, he’ll have to compete with returnees David Ash and Tyrone Swoopes for the starting job.
