TCU offers highly sought after WR Jalen Preston

TCU made an offer to Manvel prep Jalen Preston on Tuesday night.

After landing two of the top receivers in the state in the 2017 class, TCU is looking to continue landing top talent at the position going forward. 

On Tuesday night, the Frogs offered Manvel high school (Texas) wide out Jalen Preston, who is regarded currently as the No. 4 receiver in the country by Scout.com.

In 2016, Preston recorded 10 touchdowns on just 33 catches for 664 yards. He also had multiple special teams touchdowns, helping Manvel to a 13-1 record and an appearance in the Texas Class 5A Division I state quarterfinals.

"Preston will project as a wide receiver on the next level, but playing on one of the most stacked teams in the nation in 2015 he got the chance to show on tape just what type of football player he is," said Scout.com national recruiting analyst Greg Powers. "He made plays in all phases wherever he got the opportunity to make them. He has great explosion and can accelerate quickly. He is a tremendous athlete at the receiver position who has an above average leaping ability and has been making the necessary progressions at the receiver position to be considered as an elite level prospect there. He should be one of the most dangerous weapons in the state."

Preston has a double-digit offer list at the moment and includes school such as: Michigan, Oklahoma, Texas and Mississippi State. 

In the 2016 class, TCU landed offensive tackle Austin Myers from Manvel.
