Programs in need of a veteran, pro-style quarterback capable of stepping into a starting role immediately have an option in Max Wittek. The former USC quarterback declared his intention to transfer on Wednesday, and because Wittek will earn his degree, he is eligible for the 2014 season.
Wittek is no one-year solution, either. He has two years of eligibility remaining, so he can fit into a coach's longer-term plans.
With ties to both the East and West Coast, the entire college football continent is open—though not Alabama. Former Florida State quarterback Jacob Coker's transfer there last week makes a reunion with Lane Kiffin unlikely.
Otherwise, there are any number of intriguing possibilities for Wittek's football future. Until he begins making visits and meeting with suitors, expect to read any number of names. NFL.com's Dan Greenspan mentioned Georgia, and CBS Sports' Bruce Fedlman suggested Texas.
However, neither made our list.
