It’s been just over a month since Nathan Stanley decided to leave the Ole Miss football program, and the quarterback has received interest from upwards of a dozen schools.

Included in those 12 or so schools are teams at the Div. 1-AA level — Montana, Montana State and Eastern Washington among others — as well as, somewhat surprisingly, a team from a BcS conference.

According to Kyle Veazey of the Jackson Clarion Ledger, and citing Stanley’s former high school coach Brent Scott, “Clemson has also gotten into the picture recently” for Stanley’s future services. It’s unclear if the interest is coming from the player or the school — or both.

The Tigers would appear to be a somewhat head-scratching choice for Stanley as Tajh Boyd is projected/expected to be their starter at the QB position for the foreseeable future and has three years of eligibility remaining. Stanley would’ve been a redshirt junior in 2011 but will be forced to sit out the 2011 season to satisfy NCAA transfer rules, unless he drops down a level.

Stanley had been involved in a four-way battle for the starting job along withRandall Mackey, transfer Barry Brunetti and Zach Stoudt this spring, but tumbled deep down the depth chart and prompted the decision to transfer.
