A new contender has emerged in one of the biggest college football transfer sagas in recent memory as former Clemson QB Kelly Bryant visits another school.
According to The State, Bryant is expected to check out SEC powerhouse Missouri during a game between the Tigers and the Kentucky Wildcats.
The visit to Missouri comes on the heels of visits to North Carolina and Arkansas. Bryant explained to 247Sports.com that his visit with the Razorbacks went extremely well. Fans were chanting his name in the stands.
"It made me feel wanted, it kind of felt like home," Bryant said. "I heard from all the coaches how crazy all the fans get but you really don’t know until you see it. That was probably one of the most special moments and one of the highlights of the visit. I picked up on the Hog Call. I was confused at first about what they were saying but I got it after a few tries.”
Missouri are currently led by senior QB Drew Lock, but may not be set at the position when Lock graduates after this season.
After being benched in favor of Trevor Lawrence, Bryant announced that he would leave Clemson in hopes of becoming a starter elsewhere.
In 2017, Bryant's first year as a starter at Clemson, he threw for over 2,800 yards and 13 TDs, and added another 665 yards and 11 TDs rushing.
The Tigers went on to win the ACC Championship and secured a spot in the College Football Playoffs, but lost to Alabama in the Sugar Bowl.
