Bryant is expected to step in right away as the Tigers' starting quarterback, as their four-year starter, Drew Lock, will be graduating. Bryant started the first four games of this season, before losing the quarterback battle to the freshman. He started the season 4-0 for the eventual undefeated ACC Champion Clemson Tigers. As a starter there, he went 16-2, including an appearance in the 2017 College Football Playoffs, which resulted in a loss to Tua Tagovailoa and the Alabama Crimson Tide.
Clemson coach Dabo Swinney was very up front before the season, saying that Bryant would be fighting to keep his job since last spring. Swinney was interviewed about this situation and gave credit to what Bryant had done for the program but stated that "Trevor came out of camp ahead."
After that came out, Bryant skipped practice the following Monday, but told Swinney that he would return to the team on Tuesday. Instead, he announced that he would be transferring that Wednesday and stated that he was not treated fairly by Clemson.
In just four games played, Bryant completed 67 percent of his passes with two touchdowns, along with two rushing touchdowns. The quarterback visited with the likes of North Carolina, Arkansas, Mississippi State, and Auburn, before making his final decision. He enters Missouri with a career 66% completion percentage, 3,338 passing yards, 16 touchdowns, 10 interceptions, 973 rushing yards, and 15 rushing touchdowns.
