At 6 feet 1 inch and 195 pounds, Preston Jr. has good size for a young safety and will probably look to add more muscle during his senior year and when he gets to Starkville. He chose Mississippi State over Vanderbilt and a handful of other schools, according to 247sports.
Preston Jr. is the 14th commitment for Mullen in the 2018 recruiting class and second of the day, after Atlanta DB Tyrese Ross announced his decision to play for the Bulldogs earlier this afternoon.
