USC Trojans quarterback Max Wittek has decided to transfer to another school.
Since he plans on graduating from USC before transferring, Wittek won’t be required to sit out for a season. The junior will have two years of eligibility remaining.
Wittek discussed his decision with the Los Angeles Times:
I had talked to Coach a couple of times. What it really came down to was a feel for me…. Getting my degree from such a great university will mean a lot, and ultimately, allowing me to play right away with two years to play was the best way to go.
He also said he harbors no regrets about his time at USC:
I’ve learned a lot since I’ve been here. I’ve been through a lot and USC has helped me become the man I am today and there is no better place. The Trojan family is amazing. My journey has been a little bit different — it didn’t work out with the traditional picture-perfect ending, but I definitely look back with a lot of positive feelings.
Wittek completed 50 passes for the Trojans, throwing for 600 yards and three touchdowns.
