Former Georgia Bulldogs wide receiver recruit Kyrin Priester committed to N.C. State on Sunday. Priester was in Raleigh for the Wolfpack's upset win over Florida State, and he said the atmosphere in the stadium helped to win him over, as did the treatment he received from fans and the coaching staff.

Priester initially committed to the Bulldogs in April of this year, but re-opened his recruitment to explore his options and make sure he wasn't rushing his decision. Priester continued to consider Georgia and made an unofficial visit for the Bulldogs' game against Buffalo, but he later learned that Georgia no longer had a scholarship available for him.

He also considered South Carolina, but he decided he wasn't entirely comfortable with the way he was treated by the Gamecocks coaching staff during a visit.

Priester, who is considered a three-star prospect by Rivals, caught 31 passes for 565 yards and five touchdowns as a junior in 2011 despite missing five games.
