Max Wittek talks more about Texas Longhorns

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.

    In view of our recent quarterback inconsistencies, and considering David Ash may not make three games before he suffers another concussion injury, which would most likely and unfortunately end his football career, if Wittek is half the QB they claim him to be, he may be what the doctor ordered for our Horns. However, also, standing in the wings is a kid that just took his Denton, Texas “Guyer” high school to not just one…but TWO Texas State High School Division 4-A football championships, ( Jerrod Heard), I am not too certain that Tyrone Swoopes or Wittek may progress as fast as this kid will. Jerrod Heard has been rated the #1 “dual threat QB” in the nation by ESPN and several other sports medias. Wittek may be the immediate solution to “experience” behind center, but Swoopes will be fast on his tail. All three, Heard, Swoopes and Wittek may turn out to be championship material for the Texas Longhorns. It will be a fight to see who gets the “start.” In any case, UT is in good hands…especially with the new coaching staff.
