Where will the Cougars use Kyrin Priester this year? He could play on both offense and special teams.
Now that the NCAA has cleared Kyrin Priester to play for Washington State this season, the Cougars have to figure out where and how to use the newest skill weapon at their disposal. Will they start him at outside receiver or stick with Dom Williams?
— The Spokesman-Review’s Jacob Thorpe says Priester could be one of the best receivers on the team this season, and suggests that WSU might use him as a kick returner as well.
–Rivals.com’s WazzuWatch says the Cougars might have the deepest receiving corps in the country with the addition of Priester, who tallied 56 receptions for 1,116 yards and 13 touchdowns as a high school senior.
— Even Bruce Feldman, who co-authored Mike Leach’s memoir, sounds pretty excited about Priester being eligible to play:
