Report: Kelly Bryant narrows list to 2 SEC schools
With Kelly Bryant set to decide his transfer destination next Tuesday, the former Clemson quarterback has reportedly narrowed his list of contenders to two SEC schools.
The Kansas City Star reported Friday that Bryant will decide between Missouri and Auburn after an in-home visit with Arkansas on Thursday. Missouri reportedly hosted the soon-to-be graduate transfer earlier this week, and he is currently visiting Auburn, according to his Instagram story.
Auburn originally emerged as the favorite to land Bryant’s services, but uncertainty about coach Gus Malzahn’s job security and whether current starting quarterback Jarrett Stidham will declare for the NFL draft may damage the school’s standing in Bryant’s eyes.
Missouri, on the other hand, definitely has a void to fill at quarterback with the prolific Drew Lock graduating. Barry Odom’s squad will also enter 2019 with a ton of momentum after closing the regular season with four straight wins and climbing to No. 24 in the latest College Football Playoff rankings.
Bryant has just a few more days to consider his options, though his list of contenders may be down to just two teams.
