Preston Jason Ohio    6'3" 180 PG jr. 

Preston's story is incredible. He averaged 2.0 points per game in high school. He was 6'0", 140 lbs. Then, he grew three inches and made a name for himself in AAU and Prep School play. He was offered two college scholarships and he chose Ohio. After humble beginnings as a freshman, Preston blossomed by his sophomore year (2019-20). As a junior, he led Ohio to the MAC Championship (he was MVP of the MAC Tournament), securing a berth to the NCAA Tournament. In the Tournament, he helped the Bobcats to an upset victory over #4 seed Virginia. He averaged 15.7 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 7.3 assists per game in 2020-21. He shot 39% 3-pt. FG, but struggled at the free throw line, making just 59.6% FT. Defensively, Preston was a "plus" for his college team. He will need to continue to gain strength (as almost all young guards do). ...Preston is a heady Point Guard that we think has a chance to ultimately be an NBA starter at some time in his career. ...Preston may or may not be drafted. We think he should be. 


Our best advice: in 2016, the 54th pick was Kay Felder. We advised, "draft Gary Payton II."
