Former Clemson QB to attend Kentucky-Mizzou game

Mizzou will have a special visitor on campus Saturday when the Tigers host your University of Kentucky Wildcats on the football field. According to The State, former Clemson quarterback Kelly Bryant plans to visit Mizzou as a potential transfer destination for his college football future.

A finalist for the Manning Award last season, Bryant left Clemson, where he won a national title as Deshaun Watson’s backup in 2015, after losing his starting job to Trevor Lawrence, a true freshman, back in September. Bryant had started 18 straight games with a 16-2 record for Dabo Swinney’s Tigers, but was demoted after the first four games of his senior season in favor of Lawrence.

Mizzou will be the second SEC school to host Bryant in as many weeks; he was at Arkansas last Saturday to watch the Razorbacks’ win over Tulsa. He has already paid a visit to North Carolina, too.

Bryant will have one year of eligibility in 2019 due to the new four-game redshirt rule in college football.

Barry Odom hopes Bryant can be the replacement for Drew Lock next season, but maybe the Cats can spoil the visit with a big win over Mizzou in front of the former Clemson QB.

Go Cats.

    Slap in face to current QB’s.

    What might be the fall out of him attending one year?

    You just might have a mass exodus of existing quarterbacks.

    Signing him would make sense if we didn’t have a good quarterback and that quarterback was a senior next year.

    I’m sure everyone except Bama and Clemson are pursuing him. But he is only probably seriously interested in 5 or 6 schools. I really don’t want him in the SEC. He visited Arkansas and now Mizzou. Two teams we play next season.
