Re: '15 NY SF Ryan Preston (URI JUCO Transfer)

I see some alley oops going to this kid this year...a long athletic kid who can jump out of the building...kind of like Ullmer, except stronger. I saw him at the practice too. I didn't realize what a strong upper body he has.

That is saying something, and yes I'll take that.

His vertical is around 40, or something crazy like that. I think only Fatts had a higher vertical.
