San Marcos (Texas) High three-star recruit Malik Presley tells On3 he’s down to three schools: Texas, Texas A&M, and Arizona State.

Presley, a 6-foot-6 class of 2023 small forward, recently unofficially visited Texas A&M. Texas was set to host him officially on October 15th, but that trip will be rescheduled. Arizona State will host him this month on the 22nd.

The Texas native also received offers from LSU, TCU, Ole Miss, and others.

Presley ranks as the No. 127 prospect in the 2023 class, according to the On3 Consensus, the average ranking from all four major recruiting media companies. He’s also ranked as the No. 23 small forward and the No. 11 prospect in the state of Texas.

Malik Presley breaks down his finalists

Texas: “I think Texas is a great program. It has a great coaching staff that I’m really getting to know. I also grew up playing basketball in Austin so with Texas being right in my hometown, I think it could possibly be a really great fit for me.”

Arizona State: “I love Arizona State too. They also have a really good coaching staff. Their playing style is a lot similar to my high schools just at a higher level. I feel like with the right development, I can do really well at the next level with the way they play.”

Texas A&M: “A&M has a great culture. I went on a couple of visits there. On one of them I was at a football game and I could just feel that college atmosphere there. Coach Buzz (Williams) is a great coach. I like how hard he coaches his players and that shows by the way the play. I feel like I could benefit from going to a school like that.”
