Kyrin Priester Commits To UGA Football Over Vanderbilt

Kyrin Priester became commitment No. 10 for the class of 2013 for Mark Richt and the Georgia Bulldogs. Priester is a 6-foot-2, 185 pound wide receiver who selected the Bulldogs over Vanderbilt and TCU.

Priester and his family recently moved from the Orlando area to Brookwood High School in Atlanta. He reportedly picked the Bulldogs because of the Christian beliefs of Mark Richt while also being a big fan of A.J. Green.

"I committed to Georgia because I like Coach Richt being a great Christian because I'm a believer, too," Priester said. "Also, it was because Georgia needs receivers, I'm a good fit for them and they like me."

As a junior Priester totaled 31 catches for 565 yards and five touchdowns after missing the first five games of the season with a fractured fibula. He is rated as a three-star recruit by Rivals.com.

Here is a look at his highlight tape from the 2011 season:
