Former Clemson quarterback Kelly Bryant took another transfer visit this past weekend, checking out Missouri's football program. The visit reportedly went well.

Bryant, who transferred out of the Tigers' program following Dabo Swinney's decision to name Trevor Lawrence the starter, spoke to Matt Connolly of The State about his status.

“It was definitely a great experience, great time, just really getting up there and just hearing from the coaches’ perspective and seeing for myself firsthand what all they’re about. I really could see myself there,” Bryant told The State. “To me, I felt like at the end of the day I look back, they checked all my boxes.”

Bryant had already visited North Carolina and Arkansas, though the visit to the Tar Heels wasn't an official one. The former Tigers' quarterback will be heading back to UNC for an official visit.

A new school is emerging in the race, too.

Bryant says that Arkansas is now an option.

“I’m taking an official to UNC this weekend. I’m trying to figure out for Mississippi State whether I’m going to get down there. I’m thinking about it. It’s not set in stone yet,” Bryant said. “And I’m trying to find one more to check out. I’m not sure yet.”

Louisville and Baylor have also been named possible options.

Stay tuned.
