Why be excited: After losing a pair of wide receiver commitments, the Tiger coaching staff switched gears and immediately went hard after Priester, at the time the top-rated player on N.C. State's commitment list. New defensive secondary coach Mike Reed - who was Priester's primary recruiter for the Wolfpack - turned the tables in Clemson's favor, and shored up high-priority recruiting area for 2013.
You may not know: Before he committed to N.C. State last summer, Priester had committed to Georgia after an early offer..
How he fits into the depth chart: Clemson regularly played six wide receivers last season, and with Nuk Hopkins departure to the NFL, both Priester and Mike Williams have a chance to work their way into the rotation.
