The good news on Preston is, we didn't see him commit over the weekend to Kansas State either. Hoping we land one of them.

Great news good height,

RIVALS:
**** Star
#6 player from La. in 2022

Several fans get hung up on 5 Star far in between, Rivals has him at 4 Star same as Thompson (3 star transfer) Good players but don't slant ratings to feel good be satisfied these are great players better than we use to get.

The Tulane Green Wave under new head coach Jon Sumrall have raised some eyebrows with their latest catch from the transfer portal.
Former four-star wide receiver Shazz Preston has decided to transfer to Tulane.


Strong build with good overall size and enough space to add more mass, though not necessarily needed. Developed well physically over high school career. Natural football player with good instincts and spatial awareness as a receiver. Flashes impressive body control and adjustment ability on contested throws. Wins 50-50 situations with those traits and a high compete level. Effective to all levels, whether screen game, short-to-intermediate, or vertical. Tracks the ball well on deep shots. Owns a strong overall athletic profile that includes a three-sport background with track and basketball. Ran a 22.30 200 as a junior and long jumped 20-3 as a freshman and sophomore. Posted encouraging testing numbers as a freshman (4.61 40, 4.39 shuttle), but has not tested since. Play strength and dexterity show on the gridiron and the basketball court. Presents a run-after-catch threat with the vision and finishing ability of a back. Comes from a football family. Sometimes more fluid than twitchy, which hinders separation. Good functional athlete with above average speed, but can still squeeze more out of the top end. Ball occasionally gets into his body. Productive receiver with a body type that could be used around the formation if desired. Natural athlete and competitor with strong athletic profile. Projects as a high-major recruit who could become a multi-year impact starter with long-term NFL Draft potential.

Sumrall and company are for real. I'm glad we kept JJ McClesky on the staff. We need to get the new facilities built!

And that's the second wr from the rumor mill. 2/2 check. New rumblings is that possibly a rb and a lineman.

And with Lewis’s speed, we may have to expand the field at yulman before he runs out to Claiborne and gets hit
