    Preston Edmead, a three star point guard in the class of 2025, has been a key leader for the 9-6 NY Rens squad on this season’s EYBL circuit and has seen a surge in interest.

    The 6-foot Williston Northampton School (PA.) product earned an offer from Massachusetts at the first EYBL live period in Indianapolis, while Iona head coach Tobin Anderson was in attendance for multiple games. Davidson and Princeton have reached out since the live period as well.

    “I think I showed I can run a team,” he told ZAGSBLOG in an exclusive interview. “I’m really good at the point guard position, I can make plays and score for myself.”

    “I’m trying to be a leader and do what I know,” he concluded. “I know what I’m capable of, so I want to go out and show it.”

    Iona has had an offer out for Edmead for a while now, and the relationships seems to be going smoothly.

    “They’re really good,” he said. “He’s [Anderson] been talking to me a lot and I really like the coach, his style and the school.”

    Edmead holds other offers from Seton Hall, San Diego, Bryant and UC Riverside, among others. High Point and Hofstra have been in contact recently as well.

    “I want to find a school that really fits me, play at a high level and go there for every year,” he said.

    In terms of play style, Edmead is a potential high major guard who is currently in the mix of his first full EYBL circuit. He’s shown an excellent feel for the game, controlling pace, organizing the floor and leading on the defensive end. Edmead is a strong playmaker and seems to make the right reads out of the pick and roll. His shot making has improved as well, hitting difficult finishes at the rim and off balanced jumpers to boot.

    “Preston plays with a great pace in transition and in the half-court,” NY Rens assistant Dan McGinley said. “He knows when to get to his spots in ball-screen actions, but also does a great job getting others involved. He has had games where he takes over as a scorer and facilitator. A high basketball IQ always translates to the next level, and Preston has exactly that.”
