Three schools have been named the favorites for Clemson quarterback transfer Kelly Bryant, who announced earlier this season his decision to leave the Tigers' program.

Bryant, who's received interest from several major programs, has already taken a bunch of transfer visits.

Three schools appear to be standing out, though.

From 247Sports:

With one official left, Miami is out. Auburn is back in.

According to a source close to Bryant, he will officially visit the Tigers sometime next week (the date is to be determine). He then plans to announce his transfer plans Dec. 4.

Why the change? We can't answer that, but it certaily signals that Auburn is a top contender. According to our intel, Auburn, Missouri and North Carolina might be the three teams to watch but Mississippi State, which Bryant officially visited over the weekend should not be counted out. "He had a great visit to Mississippi State," a source told 247Sports.

Multiple insiders believe that Mississippi State could be the real favorite here, but Arkansas has also been highly thought of, as Bryant has a good relationship with the coaching staff.

Stay tuned.
