Jalen Preston, one of the country’s top wide receiver prospects, became the second player to commit to Texas A&M on Saturday.
The 4-star wide receiver announced his commitment to the Aggies after they landed 3-star wide receiver Caleb Chapman earlier in the day. Preston is listed at 6-foot-2 and 212 pounds. He is the No. 11 wide receiver in the country and the No. 65 prospect in the 2018 class per the 247Sports Composite ranking.

Preston is from Manvel, Texas, and is the 15th commitment in Texas A&M’s class and he is the highest rated, just edging out safety Leon O’Neal Jr., who is the No. 71 player in the class. Preston add offers from LSU, Texas and just about every major college football program in the country.
With the addition of Preston, the Aggies jump up to the No. 10 class in the country, just ahead of Florida and Oklahoma. Preston joins Chapman and 3-star WR Montel Parker as wide receiver’s in the Texas A&M class. The high school standout will have a chance to play early, as Texas A&M wide receiver Christian Kirk could leave after his junior season. Preston is the highest rated wide receiver to commit to Texas A&M since Kirk, a 5-star prospect, signed with the Aggies back in 2015.
Obviously, coach Kevin Sumlin was pretty excited about Preston’s announcement.
