WR Kyrin Priester Profile
Kyrin Priester, Artavis Scott and Demarre Kitt will move to Clemson this week and begin class on Wednesday. CUTigers caught up with Priester on Sunday afternoon.
"I'm on the way right now," he said. "I'm probably about 20 minutes away."
Priester, a former three-star prospect out of Brookwood High School [Snellville, Ga.] was originally slated to join Clemson in the 2013 class, but had to spend last fall at Fork Union Military Academy to get fully qualified.
"I'm excited about coming up. It means a lot, because I had to go to Fork Union and everything, but that just made me a better person," Priester said.
The experience was a positive one. When asked what he took away from his time at FUMA, Priester said, "Discipline, respect and just working together as a team."
And what are his expectations for those first few weeks on campus?
"Come in, hit school really hard, get bigger, get stronger for the spring, so I can play for a starting position and get a lot of early playing time."
With the anticipated departures of Sammy Watkins and Martavis Bryant, Priester is eager to get his shot to make an early impact.
"Learning the playbook, too, just learning, try to get that learning experience in, so I can play this year," Priester said.
When he gets to Clemson, Priester will move in with Wayne Gallman, Tyshon Dye and Ryan Carter.
