    Preston Edmead, a 6-foot point guard in the class of 2025, has started to see his recruitment heat up, earning offers from Farleigh Dickinson, Bryant, and Texas Rio-Grande Valley.

    The First Love Christian Academy (PA.) and NY Jayhawks AAU product has also heard from NCAA Tournament fan favorite Tobin Anderson at his new position with Iona.

    “Tobin Anderson reached out to me after he left for Iona,” Edmead told ZAGSBLOG. “He’s been reaching out to me saying he’s going to keep an eye on me this summer and look to build a relationship.”

    With a busy AAU summer slate, Edmead is trying to keep his head down and gain more exposure.

    “I want to show them [coaches] what I can bring to the team,” he said. “I feel like I’m really underrated, and yeah, just get more exposure.”

    Edmead’s AAU coach Jaaz Styles echoed a similar sentiment about the sophomore guard needing more exposure.

    “I think Preston is one of the best point guards in that class [2025],” Styles said. “He’s a heady point guard, probably one of the fastest point guards in the country, can shoot at a high clip.”

    “The thing that would stand out to a coach first is his defensive intensity,” Styles continued. “He picks up 90-feet every game, and you’ll get to see that if you tune in. He’s a leader, more importantly, more than anything else, he’ll put the ball in the basket and make plays for everyone else, but more importantly he’s a leader, and that translates at every level.”

    In terms of what Styles wants to work on with Edmead during the remainder of his high school career, he mentioned getting stronger and improving an already impressive basketball IQ.

    “Just probably more athleticism and getting stronger and just growing his IQ,” Styles said. “He’s pretty much a complete player already, which is rare, and I’m not saying that to just boast him, but he pretty much is already complete, and your nit-picking with a kid like Preston at this point in his career.”
