Preston Carey got his first offer from LSU last month, Preston Carey has gotten offers from some of the top teams in the country. For the soon-to-be high school freshman, it is a recruitment that likely isn’t going to slow down anytime soon.
The Long Island defensive lineman saw his latest offer come in late June from Rutgers.
The class of 2026 defensive lineman, a 15-year-old, is an impressive 6-foot-5 and 250 pounds. He is a physically developed athlete who looks like he could handle snaps in the Big Ten right now.
Carey is part of a strong talent influx in Long Island. Dylan Braithwaite and Ian Strong, both Rutgers football commits, are from Long Island. Four-star defensive back Josiah Brown and linebacker Nick Parisi, both class of 2024 recruits, are a big part of the emerging talent in Long Island.
Two weeks ago, Carey was named the Day 2 MVP at the Football University camp in New Jersey. He turned 15-years old this spring.
One day after winning the FBU award, he was offered by Rutgers.
