Ex-NSCU QB Wilson To Visit Wisconsin; Potential SEC Rule Change Could Impact Him

For weeks there has been speculation that former NC State quarterback Russell Wilson — last year’s total offense leader in the ACC — might wind up as Cam Newton’s replacement at Auburn.  But word emerged today that Wilson is planning to visit Wisconsin next week, one of at least 12 schools pursuing him.  It has been reported that he’s already visited The Plains.

That said, the SEC’s presidents are deciding today whether to extend or rescind an exception which allows graduates from other schools to enter the SEC with less than two years of eligibility.

“It’s not a Jeremiah Masoli rule” Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley said.  “His name hasn’t even been mentioned.  It’s an academic-based rule. … The issue is one-year transfers.  I know how my president feels, but I’m not going to disclose that.

Without the exception, Masoli would not have been allowed to transfer to Ole Miss last season.  Without the exception, Wilson might not be allowed to transfer to Auburn — or any other SEC school — this fall.

Stay tuned.
