Kelly Bryant plans visit to North Carolina Tar Heels

Bryant, a senior from Calhoun Falls, S.C., can now take advantage of a new NCAA rule which allows football players to play up to four games a season without losing a season of eligibility.

Former Clemson quarterback Kelly Bryant will be on campus at North Carolina this weekend when the Tar Heels play Virginia Tech, kicking off what is set to be a series of trips for the former four-star.

Less than a month ago, Bryant was the starting quarterback for one of the top four teams in America.

Former Clemson quarterback Kelly Bryant announced his plans to transfer from the program after he was benched in favor of freshman phenom Trevor Lawrence.

He called the team's going to Lawrence as a starter, a "slap in the face". A day later, Bryant announced his decision to transfer out.

Bryant is expected to visit North Carolina this weekend according to a report by 247 Sports' Inside Carolina. As a graduate transfer he will be eligible to play immediately in 2019.

Last season at Clemson, Bryant started every game for the Tigers as they clinched a spot in the College Football Playoff for the third consecutive season.

After backing up Deshaun Watson for two seasons, the 6-foot-3 Bryant landed the starting job in 2017. He passed for 2,802 yards and 13 touchdowns, and rushed for 665 yards and 11 touchdowns last season.

The newspaper reports Bryant will officially visit Arkansas for the Razorbacks' game against Tulsa on October 20. He had a 16-2 record as a starter for Clemson. He finished the year with 2,802 yards passing with 13 touchdowns and eight interceptions while completing 65 percent of his passes.
