Trevor Lawrence looks to throw in Georgia's 2016 Class 4A state championship game

Because he only appeared in four games this season for Clemson, Bryant will have a full year of eligibility remaining. After some soul searching, Bryant will transfer from Clemson.

Video: Trevor Lawrence highlightsClemson freshman was the top recruit in the Class of 2018. "I was just going to control what I could control and try to make the most of my opportunity, but at the end of the day, I just don't feel like I've gotten a fair shot".

After taking a backseat to Bryant earlier in the season, Lawrence outplayed him decisively during Clemson's 49-21 thrashing of unranked Georgia Tech in Atlanta last weekend. I was like, 'I'm not discrediting Trevor (Lawrence).

"If I was anxious about that or was deceitful in some way, I could've huddled up our coaches and said let's make sure we start him against Syracuse, that way he's got no option, but that's not how I operate", Swinney said. I tend to agree with most of Boyd's thoughts.

"I feel like it's what's best for me and my future", Bryant said in the interview.

In a break from convention, Mitchell will question Ford and Kavanaugh on behalf of the committee's Republican senators, 11 men. Avenatti also represents Stormy Daniels , who alleges she was paid to keep a sexual relationship with Trump quiet.

Swinney was asked about the controversial "slap in the face" comments by Bryant.

But the coach said, "At the end of the day, this is not middle school". He's one of the best young people I've ever been around, and even though I don't think this is a great decision, I certainly respect it, and it doesn't change anything that I feel for Kelly. "There's tough decisions that have to be made at this level, and you've got to do what's best for the team". Bryant started every game last season and the first four this year, guiding the Tigers to a 16-2 record. "I would be disappointed in that because we need him".

"When we first met on Monday we talked about the situation and I tried to encourage him to move forward and go back to work, but he was emotional", he said.

Asked whether there's anything he could have done differently to keep Bryant on the roster, Swinney said no. Bryant has 461 passing yards with two touchdowns and one interception, to go along with 130 rushing yards and two rushing TDS.

Lawrence hit on 39 of 61 over those same four games for 600 yards with nine touchdowns. Bryant, a senior, has helped the Tigers to a 4-0 start after starting all 14 games a year ago but will sit out the rest of this season and finish his career elsewhere. "He has to move on, we've got to move on and get ready to play Syracuse".
