Don’t know a ton about him but he’s supposed to be an athletic lefty (I think he’s a lefty) with pretty good size for the wing. Welcome aboard...

Very impressed with this kids announcement video. Shows he's a smart kid with a good head on his shoulders. I like this commit.

I'm hoping he's an under recruited kid with a huge upside who wants to show coaches they under estimated him.
All due respect, and I mean that from the bottom of my heart, I'm gonna pass.

Great program. New England kid. Can't tell much by these hype videos, but looks real athletic, lean, long and strong. And makes a great video for what it's worth.

Yup. I think the points that he said were important to him were well thought out in making his decision, especially for a kid his age. He was respectful and gave thanks to those who've helped him along the way. Shows a little maturity to me

+1 Preston presents himself extremely well.

Here’s a little write up on NERR:

Sounds like the type of player you’d want to press with and switch with in the halfcourt.

^^ yup.. I feel like McCall does not go for the “best possible player” to add to his team but however finds the best player that fits what he wants to do within his system

Harder working version of Tyrn Flowers. I like the pickup.

Outside of them both being lefty and on the skinny side, I'm not sure I see that. Tyrn was/is a shooter who was/is not the most explosive athlete. Santos sounds like he's pretty athletic but needs to develop his jump shot.
