Kelly Bryant announced earlier this week that he was transferring out of Clemson's football program. The veteran dual-threat quarterback decided to leave the Tigers following Dabo Swinney's decision to name Trevor Lawrence the team's starter.

Bryant, a multi-year starter, is one of the most-accomplished quarterbacks in college football. Surely, he will have plenty of interest on the transfer market.

The former highly-ranked recruit will be taking a redshirt this season and he'll have one year of eligibility left. As a graduate transfer, he'll be able to play immediately in 2019.

Where will Bryant be playing?

Several different schools have been mentioned as options, including a number of notable Power 5 programs.

ESPN mentioned a surprising one on Wednesday night.

The Worldwide Leader lists an ACC rival, Florida State, has an option for Bryant. That would be pretty interesting.

Bryant has yet to talk about where he might be interested in transferring. There will likely be several major programs interested in him.

Stay tuned.
