UNC Football: Kelly Bryant to visit Tar Heels again

Former Clemson quarterback Kelly Bryant will visit UNC again for an official, just a few weeks after taking in the Tar Heels’ game against Virginia Tech

It’s been a disappointing season for the North Carolina Tar Heels football program, as they sit at 1-6 overall and 1-4 in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

The future for head coach Larry Fedora is unclear after a 3-9 season last year, including going 1-7in conference play. There’s been some talk that the Tar Heels could move on from Fedora but that would require a buyout.

Despite the poor start, UNC does have some talent on both sides of the football and that has shown through the first few months of the season. There are some playmakers that have made big plays and the hope is that UNC can turn things around quickly for next year.

One step in that process could be landing transfer quarterback Kelly Bryant.

The former Clemson standout announced he was transferring from the program just a few weeks ago and has already visited UNC unofficially. Bryant was on campus for UNC’s home game against Virginia Tech under the light just a few weeks back.

Now, Bryant is ready to return for an official visit.

According to The State, Bryant is set to take an official visit to Chapel Hill this weekend before he’s ready to make a decision.

The quarterback was recently at Arkansas and Missouri for visits over the past few weeks. He also plans on taking one to Mississippi State before it’s all said and done.

There’s not timeline for Bryant’s decision and him returning to UNC is certainly a good sign.

UNC has struggled with quarterback play since both Marquise Williams and Mitch Trubisky left the program. This year the Tar Heels have gone with Nathan Elliott after both Chazz Surratt and Cade Fortin were lost to season-ending injuries.
