In the middle of last month, Kelly Bryant confirmed that he would make a final decision on a transfer destination Dec. 4. With that date fast approaching, the former Clemson quarterback may have whittled his transfer to-do list down to two.
In a Friday report, the Kansas City Star writes that “[i]t appears to be a two-horse race between Missouri and Auburn based on everything I’m hearing.” Bryant is visiting Auburn this weekend ahead of his highly-anticipated decision, the fifth of his five official visits. That fifth visit, incidentally, was supposed to go to Miami before it was scrapped late last month.
Officially, Bryant has taken visits to North Carolina (HERE), Missouri (HERE), Arkansas (HERE) and Mississippi State (HERE). He took an unofficial visit to Mizzou earlier this week, while Arkansas had an in-home visit with the signal-caller Thursday.
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 in September. 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.
