Kyrin Priester's wait is over.

The highly rated wide receiver took an unexpected curve ball last August when the NCAA Clearinghouse rejected his academic transcript.

Priester spent the fall semester at Fork Union Military in Virginia, and on Friday he received word that he has now been approved for January admission at Clemson, according to his Twitter post.

Priester is one of three four-star wideouts who'll begin classes at Clemson on Jan. 5, joining Artavis Scott and Demarre Kitt.

Position coach Jeff Scott considered the 6-2, 190-pound Priester to be the most college-ready of Clemson's three receiver signees last year. Both Mike Williams and T.J. Green played as freshmen this fall.

Priester was ranked as high as the No. 20 wide receiver in the 2013 recruiting class.

There are 3 or 4 guys we have coming in that already seems like they have been there for a year or so. If you go online to this website you can read about these guys almost everyday it seems. By the time they get on the field I will think of them as veterans just because of reading so much about them for the last 6 months. Can't wait to see them on the field with our other guys.
