Former USC quarterback Max Wittek is considering Texas, Ohio State and Louisville as his next college football destination, according to Scott Wolf of the Los Angeles Daily News.

Wittek announced last month that he would transfer from the Trojans after falling into backup duty behind quarterback Cody Kessler in 2013. Wittek split reps with Kessler during the first half of last season before former coach Lane Kiffin tabbed Kessler as USC's starter. Wittek completed 50-of-95 passes for 600 yards and three touchdowns, with six interceptions, in his Trojans career.

Wittek is on track to graduate from USC this spring, which would make him immediately eligible to play for another program in 2014. He would have two years of eligibility remaining, as he finished his redshirt sophomore season last fall.

For that reason alone, it seems unlikely that Wittek would opt for Ohio State. The Buckeyes bring back a proven quarterback in Braxton Miller. Wittek probably wants to play right away, and the quarterback situations at Louisville and Texas offer more immediate opportunity. The Cardinals will lose starter Teddy Bridgewater to the NFL, while the Longhorns will be looking for more stability under center after an up-and-down ending to Case McCoy's career. David Ash and Tyrone Swoopes will both be back to compete for the Texas job, though, so nothing is guaranteed in Austin.
