Former USC Trojans quarterback Max Wittek has already said his recent trip to Austin exceeded his expectations. Now, Wittek has opened up even more about the visit to Horns247, telling the site he could “definitely see” himself joining the Texas Longhorns:
Texas was actually the first school to contact me after I announced I was transferring. That was great because Texas is one of best football programs in college football history. I felt like I could fit in well there and that I would like that coaching staff a lot. Even before I visited, I felt like I could definitely see myself attending the University of Texas.
Wittek also said he wouldn’t be concerned about having to battle David Ash and Tyrone Swoopes for the starting job:
No matter where go there is always someone who you have to compete against. You can’t worry about that kind of stuff though. It’s a non-issue for me. I know I would push those guys to be better and they would push me to be better as well. I’ll do everything possible and play my best to prove I can be the man for the job.
While not committing to the Longhorns, Wittek’s comments certainly make it seem like he’s leaning heavily towards finishing his collegiate career in Austin. What do you say, Texas fans? Would you welcome Wittek? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
