Rumors did have him going to Ole Miss, but Nutt quickly shot that down in a text.Steve Andress of KEZI News reported Sunday that former Oregon Ducks quarterback Jeremiah Masoli has completed his coursework at Oregon and is now eligible to enroll in a graduate program at another school. This means, according to the report, that the QB would be eligible to play in 2010, although he still does have a redshirt available as well, if a team wanted to bring him on with the idea that he would sit out a year.
OK then. That settles that. WAC schools Hawaii, Louisiana Tech and Utah State have also been cited in the past as possibilities, although the Rainbow Warriors are reportedly uninterested in bringing Masoli and his baggage on board. Given that we're barely over a month away from the start of the season, it would seem unlikely that a team would be looking to bring in Masoli to play in 2010, unless, of course, they ran a similar offense to Oregon's. A team that will have a void at QB in 2011 might be more open to the idea of welcoming Masoli, provided he'd be willing to sit out a season.
On Monday's College Football Live, ESPN analyst Brock Huard said that while Masoli will likely end up playing somewhere this (or next) fall, going to an FCS school is probably his best option at this point.
I would love to see him stay in D-1A and see what he can do, even if it was in a smaller conference. I believe he would destroy other teams if he did end up going to the WAC.So where is he headed? The KEZI report suggested Ole Miss as a possible destination, citing Masoli's reported interest. However, Rebels coach Houston Nutt replied to a text message from the Clarion Ledger's David Brandt asking if the team was pursuing Masoli by writing, "No."
