Preston Names Favorites

At 6-foot-1 1/2 and 180 pounds, cornerback Patrick Preston went to Virginia's one-day camp recently. "It was fun," he said. "The coaches told me they like how my size can match up against bigger and more physical receivers."

The talented defender, who had six interceptions as a junior, received several recruiting calls in May. "Wake Forest called, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Richmond, UNC, and Duke. Only Hampton has offered me but the rest said they'll be waiting to see how my first few games this season go. Virginia told me at the end of their camp that an offer letter will be sent to me in the mail real soon."

Preston was asked about his favorites. "Basically, I'm looking at all the schools in Virginia, North Carolina, and Maryland," he said. "I'll review my offers at some point and go from there."

In addition to Virginia, Preston's also hoping for an offer from the Hokies. "Hopefully they will offer too," he said. "I really like how they run their practices and I think I would fit in there."
