Former Clemson QB, Kelly Bryant, announced on Tuesday that he would be transferring to Missouri and play for Barry Odom and the Tigers. He pick Missouri over Arkansas, Auburn, Mississippi State, and North Carolina
Bryant visited Missouri for their game against Kentucky, where the Tigers lost, 15-14. He decided to transfer after losing his starting job to freshman Trevor Lawrence four games into the season.
Bryant is a grad-transfer so he will be immediately eligible in 2019.
Bryant, 6-3 225 pounds, completed 262 of 398 passes for 2,802 passing yards, 13 touchdowns, and 2 interceptions. Bryant also rushed for 665 yards and 11 touchdowns in leading Clemson to the 2017 College Football Playoff.
Since Drew Lock is going to the NFL, the Tigers now have their successor at the QB position. Is Bryant better than Lock? I think so, but we’ll have to wait and see how he performs.
