The Bo Nix quarterback is leaving Auburn football and he may not get very far with Lane Kiffin’s Ole Miss clearly in the mix.
Bo Nix is one of the most attractive full-backs in Auburn’s transfer window.
After passing 2,000 yards in each of the past three seasons, Nix is looking for a new home. Since Ole Miss will see Matt Corral off to the NFL after their flop, linking Nix to the Rebels is out of the question.
Does Lane Kiffin agree?
Bo Nix to Ole Miss? Auburn QB is in contact with Lane Kiffin
Nix revealed on The Next Round podcast that he’s been in contact with Ole Miss’s head coach.
“I haven’t spoken to Coach Kiffin on the phone yet,” said Nix, per 247Sports. “I texted him, but it didn’t work… They were practicing Sugar Bowl so he was pretty busy himself. Obviously he’s trying his best, but he’s also trying to win a game and give Matt Corral his best chance to end his season. And those guys, they’re trying to get 11 wins. “
There are a lot of highly rated quarterbacks in the portal right now, so it’s not certain that Kiffin will want to put all of his eggs in the Nix basket. Casey Thompson of Texas had just entered the gate while Zach Calzada of Texas A&M, Kedon Slovis of USC and others were already present.
On the flip side, there are plenty of quarterback jobs opening at shows around the country, so Nix might find another opportunity somewhere else.
