Jeremiah Masoli Officially Joins Ole Miss As A Walk-On

Finally, it's official: Jeremiah Masoli will be an Ole Miss Rebel. Sports Illustrated's Andy Staples writes that Masoli was offered and accepted a place with the Rebels by coach Houston Nutt this weekend.

For Masoli, this is the endpoint of a long and circuitous path from his troubled time at Oregon, which included a season-long suspension and a dismissal, and the end of a convoluted courtship by Ole Miss. For the Rebels, this move adds an experienced quarterback to a roster that has none.

Masoli will be eligible to play this fall because of an NCAA rule that allows players who have finished bachelor's degrees to transfer to schools that offer graduate programs their current schools do not offer. The rub in Masoli's case? He'll be part of Ole Miss' Parks and Recreation master's program.
