Former Clemson QB commits to SEC school

Former Clemson quarterback Kelly Bryant committed to Missouri on Tuesday night to play his final year of eligibility.
Back in September, Bryant took advantage of the new NCAA redshirt rule by leaving the Clemson football team after four games this season.
Bryant completed 66.7 percent of his passes for 461 yards with two touchdowns and an interception as the Tigers' starter - up until ACC freshman of the year Trevor Lawrence was moved up to the No. 1 role for the Syracuse game.
Bryant helped lead the Tigers back to the College Football Playoff in 2017 with a 65.8 completion rate, throwing for 13 touchdowns with eight interceptions - and rushing for 665 yards with 11 more scores.
He took official visits to Auburn, Arkansas, North Carolina, Mississippi State and Missouri before the decision.
Missouri went 8-4 this season, finishing in a tie for fourth place with South Carolina in the SEC East.
