Expected to be forced to sit out his first season at a new school, Kyrin Priester will instead have the opportunity to be an immediate contributor.
According to WazzuWatch.com, Rivals.com‘s Washington State website, Priester has won his appeal for immediate eligibility and will play for the Cougars this fall. No reason for the basis of the initial appeal for the hardship waiver was given.
It should be noted that Wazzu has yet to publicly announce Priester’s status for the 2015 season.
After getting the boot by Clemson in September of 2014, the wide receiver signed with Wazzu two months later.
Priester signed with Clemson in 2013 but spent that year at Fork Union Military Academy. He enrolled at Clemson in January of this year and played in one game for the Tigers, the season opener. He was dismissed by head coach Dabo Swinney shortly after the opener for what was described as an “attitude” issue.
A three-star member of the Tigers’ 2013 recruiting class, Priester was rated as the No. 77 receiver in the country and the No. 54 player in the state of Georgia.
