As expected, Kelly Bryant‘s transfer tour will make a stop on another SEC campus.
This weekend, the transfer quarterback from Clemson is visiting Missouri and will take in today’s game against Kentucky at Memorial Stadium. That visit comes on the heels of trips to Arkansas this past weekend and North Carolina the weekend before that.
After this weekend, Bryant has no other trips currently planned, although Baylor and Louisville were mentioned as possibilities by the player himself earlier in the week.
Because of a personal connection to Arkansas, the Razorbacks are viewed by some as the favorites. Chad Morris, the UA head coach, helped recruit Bryant to Clemson.
“They’ve got all the pieces here,” Bryant, by way of 247Sports.com, said of Arkansas after his visit to Fayetteville. “I feel like if I was to come here I could maybe make a spark but I feel like all the pieces are around here. I’ve just got to sit down and make sure I dot all my I’s cross all my T’s. If I come here I need to make sure I’m making the most out of my opportunity.”
As a graduate transfer, Bryant will be eligible to play in 2019 regardless of where he ultimately lands. Next season would be his final year of eligibility.
Bryant had started 18 games in a row at quarterback for the Tigers, winning 16 of those contests, before he was benched in favor of five-star 2018 signee Trevor Lawrence last month. Bryant labeled Dabo Swinney‘s decision to bench him as “a slap in the face.”
That perceived slap triggered the much-discussed decision to transfer on Sept. 26.
