UNLV Is The Latest Rumored Landing Spot For Jeremiah Masoli

Today, former Oregon quarterback Jeremiah Masoli received some good news in that he is allowed to play next year since he completed the required classes at Oregon.   That explains a lot to why he has not looked into transferring to an FCS school.  So far Masoli has been linked to multiple schools as a potential landing spot, but has yet to find a home.  Today the latest rumor has the former Duck linked to UNLV and SB Nation's Mountain West Connection feels that it is a bad idea for UNLV take on Masoli:

This looks to be all rumor with no legs, because UNLV is transitioning into a more pro style run based offense and away from a spread option offense that had been run the previous five years at UNLV.  Plus, UNLV all ready has three really talented quarterbacks starting with Omar Clayton and Mike Clausen who are a similar player to Masoli, and then there is redshirt freshman Caleb Herring who the staff is high on and is more of a traditional drop back passer and is going to be the future of the Rebels in the Bobby Hauck offense.

Masoli is in a real bind since most schools start fall camp in a few weeks, so he really needs to make a decision.  Two tips for Masoli, perhaps look at a school that has a system that will benefit his play and one that does not have a starting quarterback in place.
