Former Clemson quarterback Kelly Bryant is planning to visit Arkansas later this month, according to a report in The State newspaper in South Carolina.

The newspaper reports Bryant will officially visit Arkansas for the Razorbacks' game against Tulsa on Oct. 20. The report states Bryant is also expected to visit North Carolina this weekend.

Bryant did not respond to a text message seeking confirmation.

Bryant, who left the Tigers' football team after losing his starting job four games into this season, is enrolled in classes at Clemson this semester and plans to be a graduate transfer who will be able to enroll at his new school in January. As a graduate transfer he will be eligible to play immediately in 2019.

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney announced freshman Trevor Lawrence would be the starter on Sept. 24 and two days later Bryant announced he would transfer and take advantage of the new four game redshirt rule. Bryant will have one year of eligibility remaining at whatever school he chooses.

Bryant completed 66 percent of his passes and totaled 610 yards of total offense in he four games against Furman, Texas A&M, Georgia Southern and Georgia Tech. Bryant was recruited by Arkansas coach Chad Morris while Morris was offensive coordinator at Clemson in 2014.

Bryant split time with Deshaun Watson his first two seasons and became the starter in 2017 when he led the Tigers to the Atlantic Coast Conference title and an appearance in the College Football Playoff. He passed for 2,802 yards and 13 touchdowns, and rushed for 665 yards and 11 touchdowns last season.

He amassed 4,300 yards of total offense and 32 touchdowns in 30 games at Clemson.

    Why, doesn’t he want to play for a winning program?

    Stf up. He can improve. Hawgs will improve when he has the players that fit his philosophy. I am willing to give this coach a chance

    Since he's only got 1 year of eligibility left, Morris would have to almost guarantee him a starting job for him to come to Ar-kan't-saw. That would make for a crowded and contentious QB situation.
