In July Jerrell Priester committed to Vanderbilt, and while he hasn't had second thoughts about that commitment, he still took additional visits in order to solidify his choice to play for the Commodores. "I'm committed (to Vanderbilt), but it's not solid," said Priester.
In December Priester checked out the other contender for his services, Kentucky. "I had a good vibe with the players," he said. "I really liked it up there."
Priester came on a big weekend for recruits, where the basketball Wildcats took on North Carolina. So there were several prospects on campus at the same time. Still, Jerrell got a chance to speak with the former head coach and the current head coach.
"I didn't really get to talk to all the coaches," he said. "I got a chance to sit down and talk to coach Brooks and coach Phillips. We talked about how they would use me if I came there," he said.
"They want to use me in the "Wildcat" and let me run the ball a little bit. Maybe at a nickel back on defense and as a kick returner too," he finished.
With signing day now less than a month away, Priester will take some time and make his decision, but up next is a visit to Vanderbilt. "I really don't know when I'm going to decide right now," said Priester.
As a senior, Priester rushed for 1144 yards on 105 attempts and also has 15 touchdowns.
