Report: Texas still leading chase for Max Wittek, TCU out


Ex-USC quarterback Max Wittek has ruled out a transfer to TCU, according to Inside USC’s Scott Wolf, and Texas remains in the lead to land his services.

Wittek visited Hawaii last week, and earlier said his visit to Texas “exceeded expectations.” There’s a far lesser chance Wittek would win a starting job at Texas than at Hawaii, as he’d have to compete against David Ash and Tyrone Swoopes in Austin.

Wittek came to USC rated as a four-star recruit by Rivals and played sporadically in three years on campus. He started back-to-back games to end the 2012 season, throwing two touchdowns and five interceptions against Notre Dame and Georgia Tech.
