The Kentucky game is shaping up to be even bigger than expected.

According to a report by The State’s Matt Connolly, former Clemson quarterback Kelly Bryant will take an official visit to Missouri for the Tigers’ game against No. 12 Kentucky on Saturday.

Connolly cites an unnamed source as the impetus for his report, but this isn’t unexpected. Rivals.com analyst Woody Wommack previously reported that Bryant was looking to schedule a visit to Missouri, along with Arkansas, UNC and Louisville.

He has already visited UNC and Arkansas, so if those are his final schools, a decision shouldn’t take too long. Bryant will likely enroll at his future school after this semester.

Missouri’s successor to Drew Lock remains unsettled, and that’s a reason why the Tigers seem like a logical suitor for Bryant. Bryant was 16-2 as a starter for Clemson before being supplanted by freshman Trevor Lawrence earlier this season.

In his only full season as a starter, Bryant completed 65-percent of his passes for 2,802 yards, 13 touchdowns and eight interceptions. He also ran for 665 yards and 11 touchdowns as he led Clemson to the College Football Playoffs.
