The news of Missouri's football program being hit with a postseason ban for the 2019 season raised the question about the future of former Clemson quarterback Kelly Bryant, who enrolled with the school as a graduate transfer with one final season of eligibility.
The postseason ban doesn't impact his original decision to transfer: Bryant was looking for the opportunity to start on the Power Five level after losing his job to Trevor Lawrence, who as a true freshman led Clemson to the national championship. Missouri was an attractive location due to senior Drew Lock's departure and the Tigers' lack of proven in-house options to promote as his successor.
In that sense, Missouri and its productive offense could still give Bryant the chance to prove himself at quarterback in the nation's deepest conference. While not viewed as up to Lock's standard as a passer, Bryant would take over a scheme that ranked in the SEC's top three in passing yards in each of the top three seasons.
