Ashton Preston C/O 2015 Spotlight

2015 CB Ashton Preston (6’0, 175, 4.5) of Edmond Santa Fe High School in Oklahoma has posted 35 tackles, one interception and seven passes broken up so far this season. Is  s garnering serious recruiting interest from a host of BCS conference schools.

The junior standout talked about the programs that are currently recruiting him. “I’m hearing from Notre Dame, Louisiana Lafayette, Oklahoma State, Mizzou, Arkansas State, SMU, Yale and Oregon State.”

Preston has already taken a few unofficial visits and has a few more scheduled for the season.

“Arkansas State has a great campus, and talking to Coach Brown about the school gave me a really good feel for their program. They sell out almost every game and they’re on top when it comes to academics.”

“Louisiana Lafayette’s campus is beautiful, better than some of the big time FBS schools. They are building a lot of new things and their dorms are great! I just had that “feeling” about their school.”

“The facilities at Oklahoma State are the things that catch your eye. Hands down it’s one of the best in the country. I got a chance to speak with Coach Duffie for the first time and he’s a great guy.  The best part about the trip was at the beginning when they came out of the tunnel and the smoke was everywhere, which was a great feeling.”

“I was also a guest of Notre Dame when they played Arizona State in Dallas. That was a great game and their fans are some serious people.”

“I’m also planning another trip to Arkansas State and I’ll be visiting SMU in mid November.”
