Jackson State is in the Ryan Perrilloux sweepstakes.
Coach Rick Comegy says he is attempting to lure the dismissed LSU quarterback to campus for a visit in hopes of signing the troubled player.
Perrilloux could play right away if he decides to transfer to a Football Championship Subdivision team next season.
Perrilloux was expected to take over the starting job for the defending national champions after serving as a backup to JaMarcus Russell and Matt Flynn the last two seasons.
But a series of off-the-field problems led to his dismissal by coach Les Miles a week ago.
Comegy has had success turning the Tigers around using transfers.
Players from schools such as Ohio State, Tennessee and Mississippi State helped Jackson State win its 16th Southwestern Athletic Conference title last season, though its first since 1996.
The latest transfer is former Volunteers safety Antonio Wardlow.
