QB Kelly Bryant Profile
South Carolina was first to offer the 6-foot-4, 200-pound freshman. That came in late February. Clemson offered just a few days later.
"I was kind of shocked. I didn't think you could offer anybody [that early]. It was kind of an honor, coming from the in-state programs," Bryant recently told CUTigers at his high school.
Alabama, LSU and North Carolina have also been in contact.
Clemson is evaluating Bryant as a quarterback and wide receiver. South Carolina likes him as a quarterback.
As a freshman, he threw for 323 yards and rushed for 670 yards and nine touchdowns.
Bryant's visited Clemson three times. He was in for the spring game, the March Junior Day and the Wake Forest game.
Both offensive coordinator Chad Morris and defensive backs coach Charlie Harbison are recruiting him.
"We're building a great relationship on and off the field," Bryant said.
Before watching the Clemson spring game, he was in Columbia for the South Carolina spring game.
"I liked it. They're really nice people. The coaches, they're really friendly people to get to talk to," he said.
This summer, Bryant will camp at Clemson and South Carolina, and possibly Georgia.
What Abbeville head coach James Nickles likes the most about Bryant is his demeanor off the field.
"The thing that's so impressive about Kelly is he's a good student. He's so humble. Very seldom do you find a young man, especially with so much success that early," Nickles said.
