2018 3* Safety Shawn Preston has committed to Mississippi State

Shawn Preston announced via Twitter today that he would commit to Mississippi State, and become the 14th member of the 2018 class. Preston is rated by 247’s composite as a mid 3 star. He held offers from other Power 5 schools: Arizona, Vanderbilt, Purdue, and Texas Tech. Preston’s commitment continues Mississippi State’s connection in Louisiana, but Preston became the first commit from the “boot” in the 2018 class. Preston also became the third Safety to join Mississippi State’s 2018 joining Marcus Murphy and Tyrese Ross. Mississippi State has granted offers too many Safeties, because of the lack of Safety prospects in the 2019 class.
