With Cody Kessler entrenched as the starter, and Max Browne expected to push for playing time this spring, Max Wittek was the odd man out in the USC quarterback derby. And with limited playing time likely on tap for 2014, Wittek has decided to transfer from USC.
Since he will graduate from USC, Wittek will be eligible to play immediately in 2014.
In two years with the Trojans, Wittek completed 50 of 95 passes for 600 yards, three touchdowns and six interceptions.
After Matt Barkley suffered a season-ending injury against UCLA, Wittek started the final two games in 2012, including a 21-7 loss to Georgia Tech in the Sun Bowl.
Even though Wittek struggled in his two seasons at USC, he was a four-star prospect coming out of high school and was a top-100 recruit by Rivals.
Considering Wittek has upside and immediate eligibility, several FBS are expected to be interested in the California native this spring.
