One of the most fertile recruiting areas for the Wildcats has been South Carolina. One prospect that Kentucky has invited for an official visit is Jerrell Priester.

While he's already committed to Vanderbilt, Kentucky is still pursuing Allendale-Fairfax (Sc.)standout Jerrell Priester. "I like Vanderbilt. I like Kentucky too. I also like Notre Dame and Clemson," said Priester.

Priester verballed to the Commodores back in late July, but he's kept his options open and one of those options is Kentucky. "I'll probably take the visit to Kentucky. It'll be in a few weeks," said Priester. The weekend that Priester is referring to is the big weekend, when the Wildcat basketball team will face the North Carolina Tarheels. Several football prospects will be on campus, including Priester.

"I don't know much (about Kentucky). I think they have a good staff," said Priester. "Coach Phillips is a cool guy. They've had a pretty good season. They got bowl eligible. I like what they are doing," he said. "They say they will use me in a variety of positions," he finished.

So when will Priester finalize his decision?

"After the visit to Kentucky my decision will be final," said Priester.

Which ever program gets Priester will be receiving a very good prospect who can contribute in many ways. "My speed (4.48 forty) is my strength," said the 5-foot-9, 170 pounder. "And my passion for the game. I'm small, but I'm a strong player too," he said.

"I want to get better overall as a player. I'm athletic and I can run, but I want more knowledge of the game. I want to work on my techniques," said Priester.

Football isn't the only factor for Priester's decision. "The main thing for me is education. But when it comes to football I want some where that I can succeed and and I can develop as a player. I want a place where I can pursue my dreams," he said.
