Wittke entered the transfer portal late last week after redshirting with the Hokies last fall, not appearing in any games.

Wittke originally committed to the Hokies as part of their 2023 recruiting class out of Buford High School in Georgia, over offers from App State, Arkansas State, Colorado, Liberty, Memphis, Old Dominion, SMU, and others. He was ranked by Rivals a four-star prospect and the No. 87 player in the state of Georgia.

For Buford as a senior, Wittke completed 67-of-111 passing attempts for 943 yards and nine touchdowns.

With Minnesota, Wittke will add quarterback depth joining a quarterback room in 2024 that was only set to have a pair of scholarship quarterbacks in senior Max Brosmer and 2024 signee Drake Linsdey. Wittke will have the opportunity to earn the No. 2 spot in the Gophers quarterback rotation this fall as Brosmer barring injury is expected to start.
