Kelly Bryant #2 of the Clemson Tigers reacts after a touchdown against the Miami Hurricanes in the third quarter during the ACC Football Championship at Bank of America Stadium on December 2, 2017 in Charlotte, North Carolina.

"I'm going to take my first official visit to Arkansas", Bryant said Rivals.

Bryant has an existing relationship with Arkansas head coach Chad Morris, who was the Tigers offensive coordinator when Bryant commit to Clemson as a high school recruit in 2014. Thanks to the new NCAA redshirt rule, Bryant can take this season as a redshirt year and have one year of eligibility remaining.

The UNC staff has been in contact with Bryant since he left Clemson and received his release, according to Inside Carolina. The Tar Heels are 1-3 overall.

Bryant announced on September 26 that he was transferring from Clemson, two days after Tigers freshman quarterback Trevor Lawrence was named the starting quarterback for the game against Syracuse for that weekend.

Last season at Clemson, Bryant started every game for the Tigers as they clinched a spot in the College Football Playoff for the third consecutive season. That also marks Fedora's best season at North Carolina. He finished the year with 2,802 yards passing with 13 touchdowns and eight interceptions while completing 65 percent of his passes. North Carolina lost to Clemson, 45-37.

Mitchell Trubisky filled in well in the 2016 season before the Chicago Bears drafted him second overall last spring.

Some other schools worth watching that are in contention for Bryant include Missouri, Louisville, Baylor and West Virginia.
