Insight on Priester

Larry Vaught has a nice article with insight on Jerrell Priester's recruitment to UK. I interviewed Jerrell several times and you could always tell he was torn between UK and Vandy. He did inform me that he visited UK, but his family didn't. At the time, I felt that hurt UK's chances to sign him.

Priester told me once that his coaches wanted him to attend UK while his mother wanted him to attend Vandy. Test scores were a factor for Priester and Vandy as he needed a higher test score to get accepted. He likely would have attended prep school before enrolling at Vandy if UK didn't have a spot for him. In the end, it all worked out for Jerrell and UK.
