Former Clemson quarterback Kelly Bryant has been busy since announcing his intent to transfer. He has already visited North Carolina and Arkansas and will reportedly check out Missouri.

There are two other programs in the running as well right now, Bryant told ESPN's Maria Taylor during an appearance on SportsCenter. They are Louisville and Baylor.

Those are five schools he is currently considering, though we'd expect others could try to get involved.

Bryant elected to transfer from Clemson after Week 4 when Dabo Swinney announced that Trevor Lawrence would be the team's starting quarterback moving forward. Because he only played four games this season, he can take a redshirt for the year.

Bryant is immediately eligible wherever he goes next year and he doesn't seem to have any regrets, based off his comments to Taylor.

“I made it and I’m happy I made it. I’m not looking back on it wishing I did something different,” Bryant said. “It’s tough because you walk away from what you’ve been a part of for such a long time. All the guys who have poured into you and you’ve poured into the young guys as well. But at the end of the day, you have to do what’s best for you. They’ll understand, whether it’s right now or a couple years down the road.”

During his career at Clemson, Bryant appeared in 29 games, throwing for 3,333 yards, 16 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. He also rushed for 987 yards and 16 touchdowns.

Bryant helped lead the Tigers to the ACC title and the College Football Playoff last season, his lone campaign as a starter after backing up Deshaun Watson for two years.
