Max Wittek to join Hawaii as Walk-On

+

After months of speculation about his expected transfer, Max Wittek has figured out a future course of action, but it will just take some time.

The four-star talent has a lively arm and will now have another opportunity to compete for playing time. It just entails a business trip to the lovely Hawaiian Islands where he completed 5-of-10 passes for 77 yards as the co-starter in last year's season opener.
