A person familiar with the situation says Mississippi coach Houston Nutt has invited former Oregon quarterback Jeremiah Masoli to visit campus this weekend.

Masoli is expected to decide by Friday morning whether he’ll visit Oxford. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because Masoli has not yet enrolled in school.

Masoli was considered a possible Heisman Trophy candidate after a breakout season at Oregon, but Ducks coach Chip Kelly kicked him off the team after two brushes with the law in six months.

Nutt said earlier this summer that the Rebels weren’t interested in Masoli, but the situation changed when backup quarterback Raymond Cotton left the team last week. That left Ole Miss with just two scholarship quarterbacks.
