WR Kyrin Priester has won his appeal, as first reported by WazzuWatch, and will put on Crimson for the Cougs on Saturdays this fall. This is huge. Be excited.
Priester was a 247Sports Composite 4-star wide receiver out of Snellville, GA, and ranked the No. 3 overall prep school prospect and No. 1 wide receiver prep school prospect in the class of '14. He was recruited heavily by Clemson and enrolled there in January. After being dismissed from Clemson by Dabo Swinney, for some undisclosed reason that didn't matter to Coach Leach, Wazzu recruited him hard and got him on campus.
The Coug wide receiver corps was already deep, with veteran Dom Williams and potential All-Conference talent Gabe Marks on the outside, and stud River Cracraft patrolling the middle of the field. Now it's downright filthy. Priester has the talent to be the best receiver on the roster, which is jaw-dropping considering just how good those big three mentioned above actually are.
Ky Priester has been working at X with Dom WIlliams, and the two will probably split reps. Just inside at H, Kyle Sweet has put in a solid camp behind big-hitter/speedster Robert Lewis. On the other side of the field, Athlon Sports cover model and Biletnikoff watch-list occupier River Cracraft will again terrorize the middle of the field at Y, with pet-wolf owning Tyler Baker backing him up. And Gabe Marks, leading wide receiver from 2013, returns to Cougar Football Saturday outside at Z with Tavares Martin Jr shining in camp behind him. Oh and 6-6 CJ Dimry has been catching footballs one handed in practice.
Can the season start tomorrow?
