Let him go at his pace. The more you want him to go... the less he will want to go (not always... but that's fairly typical of toddlers). If he WANTS to go to preschool you can let him know that he will need to be using the potty first. That might be an inspiration for him.

Toddlers don't have contol over many things, but one thing they can control is to use the toilet or not. Maybe back off for a bit and reapproach it in a month or so. Neither of my son's was completely toilet trained until shorty after three.
