STILLWATER — The summer camp circuit is beginning to pay off for Oklahoma State.

Linebacker Nico Ornelas of Richland (Texas) North Richland Hills committed to the Cowboys on Monday night, according to GoPokes.com. Ornelas picked OSU over Arizona, Arkansas, Nebraska, Kansas, Houston and others.

Ornelas spent time with the Cowboys coaching staff during a camp at Austin College last weekend and when OSU offered him, he jumped on the chance to become a Cowboy.

“I went to that camp and I could tell they were showing a lot of interest in me,” he told the website. “I needed to know how much interest they had, and after talking to them there was a scholarship offer and I committed. That was where I really wanted to go.”

At 6-foot-3, 195 pounds, Ornelas could project to play the star linebacker spot with his reported 4.5 speed. The junior, who also runs track for Richland, had 76 tackles last season.

He is the 12th known commitment in OSU’s class of 2011.
