Former Clemson quarterback Kelly Bryant was benched in favor of highly-regarded freshman Trevor Lawrence. Four games into the season, head coach Dabo Swinney made the decision to make a change under center.

Not long after, Kelly Bryant announced his intentions to transfer from the Tigers program. With the help of the new redshirt rule, Bryant was able to preserve his redshirt and thus his eligibility.

Bryant visited North Carolina last weekend and is in Fayetteville this afternoon to watch the Arkansas Razorbacks take on Tulsa. He arrived on Friday night for the contest.

The former Clemson starter has an established relationship with Razorbacks head coach Chad Morris. Morris recruited Bryant to Clemson when he was the team's offensive coordinator.

Now, the two could work together once again if Bryant decides Arkansas is for him.

Bryant announced his plans to transfer to his new program during the spring semester.

Stay tuned.
