USC backup quarterback Max Wittek, who will graduate this semester has informed the Trojans' new coaching staff that he plans to skip spring practice and transfer to another school. Per ESPN...

Wittek would be able to play immediately because of an NCAA rule that allows graduates the freedom to transfer without losing a year of eligibility.

The fourth-year junior, who has two seasons of eligibility remaining, informed new USC coach Steve Sarkisian of his decision Wednesday.

"I had talked to Coach a couple of times," Wittek told the Times. "What it really came down to was a feel for me. ... Getting my degree from such a great university will mean a lot, and ultimately, allowing me to play right away with two years to play was the best way to go."
USC head coach Steve Sarkisian sent this tweet out on Wednesday:

USC Trojans @USC_Athletics
Steve Sarkisian: "We thank Max for his contributions to Trojan football and wish him the best in his future."
