    Kelly Bryant Misses 2nd Straight Practice After Trevor Lawrence Named Starter

    With Trevor Lawrence being named Clemson's starting quarterback for Saturday's game against Syracuse, Kelly Bryant has been a no-show at practice this week.
    Per Grace Raynor of the Post and Courier, Bryant missed practice on Monday and Tuesday after head coach Dabo Swinney made the change.

    Raynor noted Swinney gave Bryant the day off Monday "to process the news and have an afternoon to himself."....

    Per ESPN's David Hale, the NCAA's four-game redshirt rule means Bryant can't appear in another game for Clemson if he wants to transfer to a program that will give him an opportunity to start.

    "If he walked in here today and said, 'Hey coach, I don't want to play the rest of the year unless you've got to have me,' OK. If that's what you want to do, I'm all for it because I love Kelly," Swinney said, via Raynor. "I would be disappointed in that because we need him, but I wouldn't judge him for that."
    ------------------------------

    Sounds like he may bolt due to that new 4 game redshirt rule. This may become a trend even bigger than it is now with this new rule. So these players even if not grad transfers can go to another FBS team and play the next season because the 4 game limit season will be considered a sit out season? Is there any time limit to declare this to be eligible the next season to play?

        Gotta wait to see how this 4-game redshirt rule plays out i.e. any "play right away" transfers make a big splash for their next team? If a good player gets put on the shelf for a younger better (think Jalen Hurts), then I like the idea he can rescue his CFB career elsewhere.

          Do we still need a 5* QB?

            There's going to be a long list of players leaving, it's already happening.

            Lemons
            The kids at Auburn
            Leading WR at Oklahoma State
            Hurts, Bryant
            DB at Southern Cal, WR at Arkansas, RB at Oregon

            We need to advertise vacancies in the CB department next year!

              Hurts would be wise to tell Lil Nicky to **** off this weekend when he tries to put him in against their cupcake.

                Ok so do we push to go for Bryant or Hurts? Do we risk losing EJ and JJ?

                Solid life lessons we’re teaching these kids. And the new rules almost encourage it.

                  We push for neither. Franks has twice the upside of either of those castaways, and the combo of Freshman and commits do as well. And best of all,they haven’t quit on their team at the first sign of adversity. Sick of the garage sale mindset.

                    Kid thought about leaving the team in the summer because he knew the competition... You knew that he was going to bail as soon as it was obvious he wasn't the man.

                    The problem here is we have Franks for 2 more years. I hope dan isn’t dense enough to not open competition up. Bryant with Mullen’s teaching would be elite

                      Yep

                      @Brett_McMurphy: QB Kelly Bryant tells @rick_bonnell he is transferring from Clemson. “I feel like it's what's best for me & my future. I was just going to control what I could control & try to make most of my opportunity but at the end of the day I just don't feel like I’ve gotten a fair shot”

                        He's transferring immediately. We should jump into the sweepstakes.

                            No, but I don’t see why we shouldn’t go after a kid who has been in the playoffs when our qbs now are a freshman, the human merkin, and Rudy.

                              Unless Franks shows he can produce against the schedule coming up I could see bringing a guy in that just has 1 year of eligibility left. Just get the commitment after signing day is over. If Franks wants to stay the starter he can beat the guy out in practice.

                                I like this new transfer rule. It helps the kids avoid a whole year of sitting out. I think it's bull crap that a kid basically has to sit 2 years if he gets beat out.
