Would you get into another relationship right after breaking up with a long girlfriend/boyfriend?
Get into a relationship your senior year of college?
Knowingly get involved with someone who lives an hour away?
How important is timing? If you really liked this other person, would you try to make it work despite the bad timing/ circumstances?

I recently tried to get involved with someone who lives much further than an hour away...
Timing is obviously very important to a lot of people for practical reasons...
However, the way I look at it is that you never know when you're going to meet that special somewhat who you're supposed to be with. You don't get to choose when that happens. I try to seize every opportunity that comes by, even if it doesn't seem like the timing is right. Because if you let it go, you may not get another chance.
It seems to me worse to not try, then to try even though you know the circumstances aren't great.
But then again, I'm far more of a dreamer than a realist. I'm always digging myself into situations that others would avoid, but that's part of who I am. I wish we could always live in the moment.
My advice about your situation is that if you have the ability to play this cautiously, then do so. I don't want you to go get yourself hurt when you don't have to. But sometimes we have to just take a leap of blind faith, and seize the opportunity that comes our way. If you really like this guy, it would be silly for you to just walk away from him because you're afraid of being the rebound girl.
But if you don't have to jump into a relationship right away, don't. Just don't wait too long either. There's good hesitation and bad hesitation. Know the difference between patience and fear.0
