It's final-exam week, which means:
> USC quarterback Max Wittek, who is planning to transfer, should be soon indicating his next school. Wittek needs to earn a degree to transfer without restrictions. USC's final-exam period is through Wednesday, with the school's spring commencement ceremony on Friday. A Pac-12 defensive back also should be making his decision soon. His school already has completed its spring semester.
> This is the last week as UH students for two of the football team's good guys. Offensive lineman Ben Dew, who earns a bachelor's degree this week, is heading to the other UH — University of Houston — for his final two seasons. Dew, whose family relocated to Texas, aspires to be a pastor. Receiver Allan Sampson, who has been injured most of the past three years, will complete his college career at Nebraska-Kearney.
> Barring large walk-up sales for baseball's final series — against UC Riverside on May 22-24 — UH will have a somewhat clear assessment of the athletic department's revenue for this academic year. It is what it is.
