Anybody heard what's up here? Family situation, or a true unknown?

Regardless, I wish him the best, seems like a good guy.

One of my favorite players on last year's team. I hope it turns out well for Preston, whether or not he is able to come back and play. As for the team, his energy will be missed and I think he surprised all of us with how well he shot last year.

This would be a huge loss in conference play. Hopefully he comes back soon.

Let me start by saying I hope everything is OK and this is just temporary. I like his game and he plays his role extremely well on this team. I hope everything gets sorted out and he returns to the team.

Strictly from a basketball perspective, this is not like last year. This team has the depth to be able to overcome his absence. Last year's did not with Sy. And we were hopeful that Sy in year 2 alongside Tre would amount to great things for this team. Especially after TB talked him up a bunch in the offseason.

He's also from RI and is playing with all of his Woodstock guys. I don't think it equates to Sy feeling like he didn't belong any more and wanting to return to the midwest, IMO.

This really blows if he leaves the team. Like 69 said, Preston was also one of my favorites last year. Great freakin kid with a fantastic attitude and skills that fill a lot of needs. Hate seeing kids like this leave the program, so I hope all is ok and he returns at some point. His versatility and attitude have lots of value to the team, and I'd hate to see him gone for good

I agree with everything posted above.

Any chance his leave of absence is related to the positive covid test that has resulted in UMass not participating in the Mohegan bubble?

Times are really weird right now; Covid has made an impact on everyones life. Whatever is going in with Preston, I'm sure he has his teams full support, and we as the fans need to show our support as well, and most importantly, respect his privacy during these times. Let's hope that he'll back on the court with his teammates sooner than later!

Hugely disappointing. Preston was one of my favorite players to watch evolve and step up last year. Everything's f'd in 2020. I hope Preston addresses whatever's going on in a productive, positive way and we see him back soon.

For what it's worth, Santos is still on the official roster, as of this post.

A tweet from Preston. I'm putting on the maroon colored glasses and think he's saying he'll be back and better than ever. For those on twitter, show Preston some support. I hope he gets better and comes back soon.
