Can you graft Morus Nigra to Illinois Everbearing?

I have an Illinois Everbearing that is just a beast to control. At this point I have decided to remove it or cut it short and graft something else onto it.

I would like to graft Morus Nigra to it if possible. Has anyone done this before? If its not possible or not Iikley to work I'm open to other suggestions.

I have grafted Nigra and others to a I.E, but if this a large tree you might have a hard time keeping the I.E. competing branches from overtaking the Nigra limbs. At least that was my experience grafting other cultivars on a well established tree. Maybe with a younger tree better results.

Thanks guys. The IE is roughly 4.5-5" in diameter. I'm thinking of doing bark/rind grafts and some cleft grafts.
