If it works out, UH would add an experienced quarterback at no cost. Wittek, who currently is not enrolled at USC, would need to redshirt this season. He then would be eligible to compete as a fifth-year senior in 2015.
Wittek, who visited Hawaii during a 48-hour recruiting trip in March, said he has a "good relationship" with UH coach Norm Chow. Chow has had a long friendship with Steve Clarkson, who serves as Wittek's quarterback mentor.
"I feel great with coach Chow," Wittek said. "He's awesome. He's been so helpful through this whole process."
UH has five quarterbacks. Taylor Graham and Jeremy Higgins will be fifth-year seniors in the fall. Ikaika Woolsey will be a third-year sophomore, and Beau Reilly and Eric Prater are freshmen. Aaron Zwahlen, who is serving a mission, joins next summer.
