Report: Hawaii expects former USC QB to join team

0 Comments

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.
