The Wren High School product who spent three years at Clemson was the starting quarterback at Missouri for the 2019 season. He has been working out in Greenville getting ready for the upcoming NFL Draft. 

A graduate transfer after earning his degree at Clemson, Bryant was immediately eligible to play in 2019 without sitting out a year.
