QB Bryant weighing transfer destination

Former Clemson Tigers quarterback Kelly Bryant is continuing to visit colleges in his quest to figure out where he’ll play in 2019, his final year of eligibility.

He was in Missouri on Saturday and has visited Arkansas and made two trips to North Carolina. He told The State in South Carolina that he plans to take an official visit to see the Tar Heels this weekend, and there’s also a chance he’ll visit Mississippi State.

ā€œIā€™m nowhere near ready to make a decision. I still have visits in place,ā€ Bryant told the newspaper.

Baylor and Louisville also have been speculated as potential destinations for the 22-year-old Bryant, who is a South Carolina native.

Highs and lows at Clemson

Bryant was named Clemson’s starting quarterback after the departure of Deshaun Watson to the NFL. He went 16-2 as a starter before coach Dabo Swinney changed course and announced freshman Trevor Lawrence, the nation’s No. 1 quarterback in the Class of 2018, would be the starter in the fifth week of this season.

Bryant called Swinney’s decision ā€œa slap in the face” and announced his decision to transfer, taking advantage of the new NCAA rule that allows a player who has appeared in up to four games the ability to maintain his redshirt.

He is set to graduate from Clemson in December. Byrant then can enroll elsewhere as a graduate transfer and play immediately next season.
