23 Billy Preston F

Kansas Jayhawks

Draft Prospect Outlook:

Billy Preston was a blue-chip recruit for Kansas who never played a minute thanks to an investigation into circumstances surrounding a vehicle he crashed during his time in Lawrence. But don't let his lack of stats fool you: he's a legitimate NBA prospect with very real upside. He has the athleticism to run the floor, block shots, and known down 3-pointers at a high level.

College Recap:

• Never played a college game after being investigated by the NCAA over the "financial picture" of a vehicle Preston was driving which was involved in a single-car accident

• Left school to play for Igokea Laktasi of Bosnian League, where he only played three games before leaving the team.

• McDonald's All-American out of Oak Hill Academy who chose Kansas over USC despite being a Los Angeles native.
