The Texas Longhorns took to the field in inside Memorial Stadium on Saturday for their spring game, and one of the biggest takeaways from the outing was the inconsistent quarterback play. With projected starter David Ash out for the rest of the spring nursing a fractured foot, sophomore Tyrone Swoopes led the first-team offense, and overall it did not look promising.
Although, Swoopes’ poor performance could be a blessing in disguise, as former USC quarterback Max Wittek was in attendance watching the scrimmage as he paid his third visit to the Longhorns as he searches for a new home, ESPN is reporting.
Former USC quarterback Max Wittek visited Texas for its spring game Saturday, multiple sources confirmed.
Wittek was on Texas’ campus for the third time this spring since electing to transfer, and the second time since the Longhorns began spring practice.
At this point, Wittek eventually enrolling in Austin seems inevitable. He is eligible to play immediately, and when you combine Swoopes’ inconsistencies running the Charlie Strong offense and the health uncertainties constantly surrounding Ash, his chances to walk in and start immediately in the Big 12 are very good.
