From watching the Texas A&M football team’s Pro Day, you may forget that the Aggies have more than a handful of athletes on the roster. This should be evident from the amount of four and five-star athletes on the team, though sometimes you need some extra evidence.
We got a reminder to check for this evidence in Texas A&M’s spring ball Aggie Cam, where each athlete was asked a single question as they walked by: Which teammate do you want on your team in a pick-up basketball game?
The answers were relatively scattered but one name kept popping up among teammates — JP. They were, of course, referring to Jalen Preston, a fifth-year wide receiver who has steadily improved in his time with the Aggies.
Texas A&M football WR Jalen Preston had serious bounce as an eighth-grade basketball star
I’ll be the first to admit that the title of this article is a little bit hyperbolic. The video that I’m about to show you is all the way back to Jalen Preston’s eighth-grade season. That said, if you saw the video, you’d probably think he’s an NBA Draft prospect.
See for yourself.
It’s easy to see why nearly half of the Texas A&M football players interviewed said that they’d take Jalen Preston on their team.
Preston would receive some basketball offers in high school but looked like a more promising football star, leading him toward the more physical sport. After all, the Aggie pass-catcher was a top-100 player in the 2018 class with offers from schools like Georgia, LSU, and Texas.
Still, Preston plays basketball with his teammates and has allegedly put together a dream team. Here’s what he said about that to The Eagle.
“At the park, I’d probably say it’s me, Yulkeith [Brown], Kenyon [Jackson], [Caleb Chapman] and Ainias. When we have our five together, we never lose.”
Preston noted that he usually plays point guard while playing pickup basketball, creating opportunities to get his teammates open. The Aggie wideout also noted that teammate Tyreek Chappell is a sneaky-good basketball player.
Unfortunately for Texas A&M basketball fans, they’ll likely never see Preston take the court. And by “likely” I mean “definitely.” Still, Texas A&M basketball is doing pretty well for itself, looking to compete for a chance to win the NIT Tournament today.
