A day after watching N.C. State defeat No. 3 ranked Florida State, Ky Priester committed to the Wolfpack on Sunday.
"The win was awesome," Priester said. "The way they treated me and my family on the visit was great."
The Brookwood senior took an official visit to the Raleigh, N.C., school over the weekend and chose the Wolfpack over South Carolina.
"The coaches (were the difference)," Priester said. "My relationship with the coaches was great. With South Carolina, I only spoke to Coach (Steve) Spurrier. With N.C. State, I talked to my position coach, my recruiting coach and I had a great relationship with Coach (Tom) O'Brien."
Priester has caught 17 passes for 322 yards and two TDs this season for the Broncos.
The receiver moved to Snellville this spring and committed to Georgia in April, but later re-opened his recruiting in the summer. The 6-foot-1, 180-pound Priester is a four-star recruit by ESPN and is rated the No. 2 receiver in the state.
"I'm not changing," Priester said of his second commitment.
Priester played for Lake Mary in Orlando last season where he missed the first five games with a cracked fibula. He finished the year with 31 catches for 555 yards and five TDs.
Priester will join his former Lake Mary teammate Jerod Fernandez, who is also committed to N.C. State.
"He didn't stress me about it," Priester said. "He supported my decision."
Priester is the second Brookwood player to make a college commitment, joining Shaun McGee who is headed to Georgia.
