Kelly Bryant explains what made his trip to Arkansas a 'really good visit'
Kelly Bryant could be Arkansas’ quarterback next season. On Saturday, Bryant was in attendance as the Razorbacks beat Tulsa, 23-0, at Razorback Stadium.
Bryant, who is transferring from Clemson for his final year of eligibility, made his official visit to Arkansas, one of the schools he is considering. And it appears that Bryant had a good trip.
“It was a really good visit, I really enjoyed it from the first second I got here,” Bryant told Otis Kirk of KNWA-TV. “I love the scenery around the campus, the game, talking to the coaches, it was a really good visit.”
At one point, Arkansas fans chanted Bryant’s name. He later joined them in “Calling the Hogs.”
“It made me feel wanted,” Bryant told Kirk. “Kind of felt at home. I heard from all the coaches how crazy all the fans get, but you really don’t know until you see it. That was probably one of the most special moments and one of the highlights of the visit. I picked up on the Hog Call, I was confused at first about what they were saying, but I got it after a few tries.”
Bryant previously visited North Carolina, and he said that he has a visit scheduled for Missouri next weekend, according to Kirk.
Bryant went 16-2 as a starter at Clemson, which included leading the Tigers to the College Football Playoff last season. However, he was benched earlier this year in favor of freshman Trevor Lawrence, which led to Bryant’s decision to transfer.
Bryant has a relationship with Arkansas coach Chad Morris, who recruited Bryant to Clemson while he was serving as the Tigers’ offensive coordinator.
After seeing Morris’ team play in person, Bryant appeared to be impressed.
“They’ve got all the pieces here,” Bryant told Kirk. “I feel like if I was to come here, I could maybe make a spark, but I feel like all the pieces are around here.”
