Swinney dismisses freshman WR from Clemson team

CLEMSON, SC (AP) -

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said freshman receiver Kyrin Priester has been dismissed from the team for a poor attitude.

Swinney said Wednesday that Priester had no respect for authority and that he was a good individual who had lost his way, which is why he's no longer on the team.

Priester is a 6-foot-1, 186-pound wideout from Lilburn, Georgia, who had 56 catches for 1,000 yards and 13 touchdowns his senior year at Brookwood High. Priester enrolled at Clemson this past January and had hoped to make an early impact for the 23rd-ranked Tigers.

He played on special teams in last week's 45-21 loss at Georgia last weekend.

Priester was listed as a third-string receiver on Clemson's depth chart for its game with South Carolina State on Saturday.
