"Right now, Rice, Memphis, and the most recent one is New Mexico State," Salinas told Greg Powers of Scout.com and Foxnextlevel.com when asked about his offers. "I just really appreciate it -- and finally being recognized. I have worked hard and I know I can play. I felt unappreciated but now I feel like I am finally being recognized."
Watching tape of Salinas as he is playing center on that Irving High School offensive line shows that he is very physical and shows great strength with a 300-plus bench press and close to 500-pound squat max. He locks up and often times puts his defender on the ground.
"Aggressiveness," Salinas began as he talked about his strengths as a player. "I have the mental part down. I know what it takes to be an offensive lineman and I can be nasty, and I can go with the best of them."
Salinas is hearing from other schools and Oklahoma State may be ahead of the curve with schools like TCU, Stanford, Baylor, Oklahoma, Texas A&M, and Boise State showing interest.
