Priester a name to watch

"I was at Lake Mary (FL) last year I was living with my father and I just moved with my mom and she was moving to Atlanta so I just started at Brookwood. I like it. I really don't know anybody but the football team took me in pretty good, I'm getting along with everybody."

A few players are currently on the Frogs radar and another player to keep a close eye on is Brookwood's Kyrin Priester, who comes from the same school as Jackson.

The 6-foot-1, 185-pounder recently moved to Snellville from Lake Mary, Florida in January. Priester says his new teammates have helped the transition go easier.

"I was at Lake Mary (FL) last year I was living with my father and I just moved with my mom and she was moving to Atlanta so I just started at Brookwood. I like it. I really don't know anybody but the football team took me in pretty good, I'm getting along with everybody."

Priester hauled in 31 catches for 565 yards and 5 touchdowns in 2011 and once schools catch a glimpse of him in the spring his interest level should skyrocket.

TCU is already among the teams showing interest in Priester. According to Priester the Frogs are showing the most interest among other schools.

"I've talked to the coach who recruited Zach (Jackson) and he's telling me that he likes me and everything and that he'd love to coach me," Priester said. "He's said he's going to come and see me in April and introduce himself and he told me he wants me to take a visit when Zack comes up. But nothing else really. I just see the stuff online, that's about it. TCU is the showing the most interest, I get letters from USF and Florida State, that's about it."

Priester also gets plenty of helpful advice on TCU from Jackson and he's got the receiver convinced to take a visit over the summer.

"He tells me it's a beautiful school and a great school. He told me that he knows I'll get other offers and everything but I need to take a visit and check it out myself," Priester said. "He's always telling me it's a great school grade wise and he said the football team is pretty good. I like TCU so far."

A family atmosphere and depth chart are two factors Priester is looking for in a college.

"Playing time and I like that TCU is a Christian school because at Lake Mary I got involved with FCA and I got saved and everything and it turned my life around," he said. "I always wasn't a good person but I changed my life around and started playing football and I got better and better at it. I like where it's going to take me."
