USC quarterback Max Wittek, who is seeking to transfer, said Hawaii is "absolutely" one of his finalists.
Wittek has visited Texas and UH. He acknowledged Louisville also is a consideration.
Wittek said he has not set a deadline. He is free to transfer, without having to redshirt, after he earns a bachelor's degree in May. He has two seasons of eligibility remaining.
Wittek said one of UH's attractions is the opportunity to work with head coach Norm Chow, who doubles as offensive coordinator.
"Coach Chow is awesome," Wittek said. "His (football) pedigree speaks for itself."
