ORLANDO – Texas A&M signed 10 prospects during the early signing period, but while four-star wide receiver Jalen Preston had been committed to the Aggies since July, he wasn’t one of the signees.
Preston told GN during preparations for the Under Armour All-American Game that he still is leaning to A&M.
“At this point, I would probably say I’m 80 percent until I take my official visit and meet all the coaching staff,” he said. “I haven’t met all of them. I’ve talked with them over the phone, but I haven’t met them in person.”
Preston (6 feet 2, 212 pounds) is from Manvel (Texas) High, about 30 miles south of Houston. He is one of the top-20 wide receivers in the country as well as a top-100 prospect overall.
Because Preston did not sign during the early signing period, he says teams are blowing up his phone.
“The latest schools have been Florida, Arkansas, Ole Miss and Texas,” Preston said. “I might take a visit to Arkansas and I might take a visit to Florida, but I don’t know yet.”
Preston said he frequently talks with A&M signees and commitments.
“We have been a brotherhood through it all,” Preston said. “We talk with each other all the time because we all need to know what’s going on. If somebody wants to leave (the class) that’s their decision because at the end of the day, we all have one goal and that is to make it to the NFL.”
