According to a report from InsideUSC, Ohio State is one of the teams USC transfer quarterback Max Wittek is talking with. Louisville and Texas are also pursuing the former highly sought after signal-caller. According to ESPN, Wittek soon plans to visit Texas and they could be the front runner for his commitment.
Since the former backup USC quarterback is planning to graduate this spring, he would not be required to sit out a year. He will have two years to play two seasons with whichever school he selects.
In 2012, as a red-shirt freshman, Wittek appeared in eight games. He was 36-of-69 for 388 yards with 3 TDs and 5 interceptions. The six-foot-four, 235 pound pocket passer does not seem to be the dual-threat style of quarterback that Urban Meyer typically has behind center.
Ohio State returns senior QB Braxton Miller with Cardale Jones, J.T. Barrett and true freshman Stephen Collier serving as his back-ups.
