Ex-Clemson Starting QB Bryant To Leave Tigers After Demotion

While senior signal caller Kelly Bryant had started every game this season for the Tigers, he was part of a rotation with highly-touted true freshman Trevor Lawrence.

Clemson quarterback Kelly Bryant feels he didn't get a fair shot to keep his job and has made a decision to transfer after highly touted freshman Trevor Lawrence was named the starter for the third-ranked Tigers.

The college football world is seeing the player benefits of the new redshirt rule in action since news broke Wednesday that Clemson quarterback Kelly Bryant is transferring.

"Even though I don't think this is a good decision, I respect it", Swinney told reporters Wednesday. Bryant started throughout last season for Clemson, and started the Tigers' first four games of this year.

Clemson quarterback Kelly Bryant, demoted from the starting job earlier this week, missed practice Tuesday for undisclosed reasons.

Bryant went 16-2 as a starter and led Clemson to the College Football Playoff past year. "And I feel like this is the best situation for me".

A double from Pierre-Emerick Aubamyeng and goals from Danny Welbeck and Mesut Ozil eased them to victory at the Emirates Stadium . It didn't reflect what happened on the pitch", Silva said. "For me, it's odd ".

"If I was anxious about that or was deceitful in some way, I could've huddled up our coaches and said let's make sure we start him against Syracuse, that way he's got no option, but that's not how I operate", Swinney said. I love him. I care about him I wish him nothing but the best. I've been here. I've waited my turn.

After making 18 starts during his time at Clemson, Bryant led the Tigers to a 16-2 record, including one ACC championship and a trip to the College Football Playoff. "I've told y'all that many times that if we saw a change, if there was a change, we'd probably all know it, and that's what happened Saturday".

Lawrence (above) - a 6-foot-6, 215-pound native of Cartersville, Georgia - has completed 39 of 60 passes for 600 yards with nine touchdowns and two interceptions through four games. I've never been in trouble with anything.

Bryant is the third Clemson quarterback to leave the school since Lawrence's arrival.

Swinney was asked about the controversial "slap in the face" comments by Bryant. That was the buzz coming out of Death Valley in the spring, when Hunter Johnson, who transferred to Northwestern, left after meeting with Swinney and learning his standing on the depth chart. And as a graduate transfer, he can play right away at his next school.

Speculation has centered around Arkansas, where he could be reunited with former Clemson offensive coordinator Chad Morris - now in his first year as Razorbacks' head coach.
