Oklahoma State football recruiting: Cowboys had Jaxon Salinas sold after junior day

“If I get here, it'll be a miracle,” Salinas remembers thinking during junior day. “I truly love this place.”

Salinas, at 6-foot-4 and 290 pounds, can play either guard or center. He's one of five offensive line recruits in OSU's signing class.

“They're getting a throwback, nasty, blue-collar kid who will do right for them,” Irving coach Aaron De La Torre said.

As a two-star prospect, Salinas admits he feels he has something to prove at the next level. But he doesn't hold too many hard feelings about the star rankings, since he wound up at the exact school he wanted for both athletics and academics.

So much so that after OSU offered, Salinas didn't even listen to any other program's recruiting pitch.

“Jaxon never wavered,” De La Torre said. “He had told me, ‘I don't want to talk to no one else.' Even when people would come in, I was like, ‘Nope, he's committed. He's solid.'

“That's the kind of kid they're getting. A kid that stands up for what he believes in. His word is his word.”
