WR Kyrin Priester Profile
A three-star prospect from Brookwood High School in Snellville, Ga., the Clemson coaches believe Priester will be able to contribute at any of the three wide receiver positions -- 9, 5 or 2.
"I'm just expecting myself -- they told me I could play any of the positions at receiver, because I have the size," Priester told CUTigers in a recent interview. "I'm just expecting to go in and learn from Sammy Watkins, Martavis Bryant, Charone Peake -- I'm just going to go in there and learn from those guys, and try and get some playing time."
Priester will wear No. 80, but after Bryant's Clemson career is done, he hopes to take over No. 1. This year, Priester will live with a few other Georgia guys -- Ryan Carter, Tyshon Dye and Wayne Gallman.
When looking at his roommates and the rest of the 2013 Clemson class, Priester believes the group will do good things over the next four to five years.
"I think we've got a good, solid group at every position, to tell you the truth, definitely at DB. We've got a lot of DBs coming in that are going to be pretty good," he said.
Priester called Carter "the underdog" of the class.
"I think, because of his size, and playing for Grayson -- Robert Nkemdiche and David Kamara -- I think he's one of the best DBs coming out in this class, if you really think about it," Priester said. "I played against him. He's tough."
Upon his arrival to the Clemson campus later this month, Priester knows that he's going to have to show some grit.
"When I get there, I've got to work, work my way back to the top," he said. "I'm not in high school anymore. I've got to work harder. I'll do it."
As a senior, Priester had 56 catches for over 1,000 yards and 13 scores. He caught 31 passes for 565 yards and five touchdowns as a junior.
