The 5-foot-9, 165-pound Preston visited the Mountain West Conference campus for their Junior Day. Preston said he made an instant connection with the Spartan coaches.
"The whole coaching staff is real cool, and I could see myself starting something big there," Preston said.
He's now the 12th college football commit out of Central since 2011, plus the first for the Grizzlies' 2015 class. He's also the fourth secondary prospect from DB Guru to join the Spartans. Bullard-Fresno DB Nautica Fleming committed to San Jose State for the 2014 class. Clovis West's Andre Chachere and Fresno City DB Dasheon Frieson are also DB Guru products with the Spartans.
CGM'S TAKE: Preston looks undersized, but don't let his small frame fool you. He's feisty and has an advantage with getting underneath a wide receiver's pad level during press coverages. He's Central's most physical cornerback and can blanket receivers with his speed. Still needs added muscle and more fluid hips, but his physical nature can make an impact for the Spartans.
