BREAKING: Cougs sign former Clemson WR to FAA

FORMER CLEMSON wide receiver Kyrin Priester is Wazzu-bound. The 6-1, 185-pounder has signed a financial aid agreement with Washington State, a prep source tells Cougfan.com. The former three-star recruit out of Snellville, Georgia, officially visited Washington State this past weekend and is expected to arrive on the Palouse in January.

Priester's decision was first announced on Washington State football's official twitter page. Because Priester signed an FAA, the school is free to mention him.

"Welcome to the WSU Coug Family @KyPriester! You will have a lot of fun here in Pullman, WA! #GoCougs, read the tweet.

Because he'll be transferring, Priester will need to sit out next season and then have 3-to-play-3 beginning in 2016, though he told CF.C prior to his visit that he's hoping there might still be a way for him to become eligible next season.

Priester, who is finishing out the semester at Clemson, was dismissed by the Tigers for what coach Dabo Swinney called, “an attitude that is not acceptable to our standards.”

“It was just some differences I had with my position coach,” Priester told CF.C prior to his trip to the Palouse. The 6-1, 185-pounder chose Washington State over offers from Utah and others. Back in 2013 when he was coming out of Brookwood High, Priester was rated three stars and the No. 49 wide receiver nationally by Scout.com. Prior to signing with Clemson, he was verbally committed to Georgia and North Carolina State and also held offers from Ohio State, South Carolina, TCU and Vanderbilt. He spent a year at prep school before arriving to Clemson this season.

We have a call out to Priester and will bring you more as soon as we touch base with him.

Notable Note: Three-star Concord, Calif., cornerback Jevari Anderson was also scheduled to visit Washington State over the weekend, but he informed Cougfan.com he rescheduled his trip for the Apple Cup on Nov. 29. As has been reported by CF.C, the Apple Cup is expected to be a huge recruiting weekend for WSU.
