Bryant talks Clemson, N.C. State, others
Class of 2015 Piedmont (S.C.) Wren quarterback Kelly Bryant came into the summer facing questions about his position, but after several strong camp showings, there's little doubt he's all quarterback.
"It's very important to go to camps and do well and show what I can do as a quarterback," Bryant said. "I want to show schools that I've got an arm and that I can throw. I think I've done pretty well."
Bryant impressed at camps at several schools, including Clemson, Auburn and Ohio State. The Tigers are one of the schools pushing the hardest for Bryant and he said recently the coaches have changed their tune about his future position.
"They've actually changed from recruiting me as an athlete to recruiting me as a quarterback after I camped there," Bryant said. "That was good for me because it was one of my goals."
Bryant recently transferred schools to play in a more pass-friendly offense and said he feels like he would thrive in Clemson's scheme.
"I think I would fit well into a spread offense," he said. "[Offensive coordinator] Coach [Chad] Morris has told me I fit I just need to keep doing what I'm doing. I could really see myself playing in that type of high-powered, explosive offense."
Bryant also gave his thoughts on some of the other schools in the mix for his services:
Auburn: "I think everything went well at camp there. The coaches got to see me more as a quarterback than as an athlete so I got to throw it around a little bit."
N.C. State: "I had a good experience up there. They liked me and they sat me down with my family and offered. They told me that they're going to be running the pistol and the spread and they'll be running a lot of read-option. That's something I'm used to. They're going throw it around too and that's something that would be a good fit, too."
Ohio State: "Ohio State has produced a lot of good quarterbacks and with Urban Meyer being there; he's put people in the league and he's a great coach. I could see myself there."
