Ex-Clemson QB Kelly Bryant lining up visits

Bryant split time with Lawrence for the first four games of the season, helping the Tigers to a 4-0 record.

Former Clemson quarterback Kelly Bryant plans to take an unofficial visit to North Carolina this weekend, sources with knowledge of the situation told ESPN's Adam Rittenberg.

Since leaving the Clemson football team last month, Bryant has been taking graduate classes while working out to stay in shape.

Earlier this week, it was reported Bryant scheduled a visit to North Carolina.


Clemson coach Dabo Swinney announced freshman Trevor Lawrence would be the starter on September 24 and two days later Bryant announced he would transfer and take advantage of the new four game redshirt rule. The senior played in only four games in 2018; as everyone knows now, this means the former Clemson Tiger can preserve his final year of eligibility - the 2019 season. Clemson lost just two games all season - at Syracuse when Bryant left the game with a concussion and against juggernaut Alabama in the College Football Playoff.

Bryant served as a backup to Deshaun Watson at Clemson for two years.

Bryant completed 66 percent of his passes and totaled 610 yards of total offense in he four games against Furman, Texas A&M, Georgia Southern and Georgia Tech. Lawrence quickly proved himself to be the better option and eventually won the starting job. He finally became the team's starter last season, throwing for 2,802 yards, 13 touchdowns and 8 interceptions, while rushing for 11 scores.

Bryant told Rivals.com that he will follow his unofficial visit to Chapel Hill up with an official visit to Arkansas for the Razorbacks game against Tulsa on October 20.
