By EJ Holland- Texas Reporter

The best way to label Preston is an athletic freak. This dude can jump out of the gym, and might be the best red zone wide out in the country. He is at his best on jump balls and uses his height, athleticism and strength to outmuscle defenders. Preston is also versatile enough to be a bigger slot receiver thanks to his excellent route running skills. Preston is also an electric kickoff returner.

Areas of improvement:
Preston needs to have more consistent hands. As mentioned, he can do it all from a route running and skillset standpoint, but Preston needs to make sure he secures the ball and becomes a reliable pass catcher.

Baylor, Georgia, Michigan, LSU, Mississippi State, Oklahoma, Ole Miss, Oregon, Penn State, Texas and others.

Additional info:
Preston recorded 33 receptions for 664 yards and 10 touchdowns as a junior and was named the District 23-5A Special Teams MVP. He is also an elite basketball player with multiple offers.
