Preston impressed with the Irish
Among one of top juniors that Notre Dame hosted on Saturday for its game against BYU was cornerback Ashton Preston of Edmond (Okla.) Santa Fe. "The visit was great," Preston said. "I really enjoyed myself. I was able to talk with Coach (Bob) Elliott before the game, and he told me he was going to come see me in Oklahoma in December. I'll have a better idea of where I stand with Notre Dame then." The 5-foot-11, 170-pound cornerback is receiving interest from the likes of Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas, Tulsa and SMU, though he's still waiting for his first offer to come through. "Notre Dame's campus is beautiful," Preston said. "The coaches are great, and even though it was cold, the fans were really into it and the stadium was a lot of fun." Preston names physicality as one of his main strengths on the field. "I play very physical against wide receivers," he said. "I'm also very fundamental compared to other players, and I think it's those things that give me the edge on the field." Preston plans to visit for Oklahoma State for its game against Oklahoma this upcoming weekend.
