No. 2 realistic destination for USC quarterback Jaxson Dart: Ole Miss Rebels

Don't be surprised if Jaxson Dart goes and plays for former USC Football Head Coach Lane Kiffin at Ole Miss.

Kiffin is a QB guru, dating back to his time at USC as both a head coach and an assistant coach. He also developed Matt Corral into a fine college QB who will be one of the most intriguing quarterback draft prospects this year.

Due to Corral leaving for the draft this offseason, Ole Miss could use Dart, who has an aggressive gunslinger mentality that fits Kiffin's aggressive and high-flying offensive attack.

Kiffin did really well with a QB like Corral who uses his athleticism and mobility to his advantage, and it's one of the biggest reasons Dart would fit with Kiffin. Ole Miss was seen as a dark-horse candidate for Williams, and now with that ship seeming to have started sailing, Dart enters the fold for the Rebels.

After all, as RJ Young of FOX Sports points out, Williams was arguably an even better recruit than the former SC commit in Corral:

Ole Miss will at least be in the discussion for Dart, but Dart may also want to use this opportunity to go home.
