    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog

    Billy Preston, No. 20 on the ESPN 100, is expected to make his college commitment announcement Friday during ESPNU’s SportsCenterU.

    Preston will be live from ESPNU studios in Charlotte, N.C. in the 4 p.m. ET hour, between the Tire Pros Invitational matchups. The 6-foot-10 power forward from Oak Hill Academy (Va.) is expected to choose between Indiana, Kansas, Syracuse and USC.

    “Billy is an exceptionally talented prospect and there isn’t much he can’t do during a game,” said Paul Biancardi, National Recruiting Director. “At 6’10’’, he is a multidimensional player, a natural power forward, and arguably one of the most talented athletes in his class.”

    Preston and No. 2 Oak Hill will be playing in this year’s GEICO ESPN High School Basketball Showcase, comprised of 11 premier games across ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNU, beginning Thursday, December 1. No. 2 Oak Hill is scheduled to face No. 3 Sierra Canyon (Thursday, Dec. 15, 9 p.m.) and No. 22 Nathan Hale (Monday, Jan. 16, 1 p.m.).
