The Missouri Tigers landed Clemson grad transfer QB Kelly Bryant on Tuesday night, getting a star player to replace outgoing QB Drew Lock.
Naturally, that sent the Mizzou fanbase into a frenzy, as many were overjoyed that coach Barry Odom and his staff had managed to land the guy who led Clemson to the National Championship Game following the 2017 season.
The reactions came in quickly via Twitter, and as you can see below, it was like Christmas came early in Columbia.
Here are just a few of the many reactions to Bryant’s decision:

The Tigers have plenty of offensive firepower returning next year, so Bryant will have a lot to work with in 2019.
