Redshirt freshman Max Wittek will make his first career start for USC on Saturday against top-ranked Notre Dame. Here is more background information on Wittek from his senior year of high school.

Scouting report contributed by National Recruiting Analyst Brandon Huffman.

Wittek is a greedy quarterback that is always pressuring the defensive backfield. He has tremendous vision and always wants to make the big play before checking down to his shorter routes. He has a quick release and a strong arm. He struggles with accuracy at times, but shows poise under pressure and a willingness to hang in the pocket and take a hit. A gun-slinger mentality, Wittek likes the high risk, high reward throws. As a junior, he was just ok, filling the big shoes left by Matt Barkley, but as a senior, he really flourished, growing into the role, making better decisions, and dealing with the pressure from the pass rush. At the UnderArmour All-America game, which that year, featured Braxton Miller, Jeff Driskely and Brett Hundley, he may have been the steadiest and most consistent across the board, all week.
