Former Clemson quarterback Kelly Bryant announced Tuesday evening that he plans to play the 2019 season at Missouri.
Bryant played four games for Clemson this season starting all of them. The Tigers won all four. But after the fourth game, Coach Dabo Swinney informed Bryant he was gonna start true freshman Trevor Lawrence. Bryant and Lawrence had both played in the first four games. Bryant then opted to take advantage of a new NCAA rule that allows a player to participate in four games and still redshirt.
Bryant, who was 16-2 as a starter at Clemson, completed 35 of 53 passes for 456 yards, two touchdowns and an interception this season. He also rushed 30 times for 144 yards and two touchdowns.
As a junior, Bryant led the Tigers to a 12-2 record. He completed 262 of 398 passes for 2,802 yards, 13 touchdowns and eight interceptions. Bryant also rushed 192 times for 665 yards and 11 touchdowns. He was one of 11 finalists for the Manning Award and among the 16 finalists for the Davey O’Brien Award.
At Clemson for his career, Bryant completed 310 of 469 passes for 3,333 yards, 16 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. He also rushed 257 times for 987 yards and 16 touchdowns.
