Cowboys Sign Four, May Add One More

Oklahoma State has already inked four junior college signees to add to the football program on the Junior College Signing Day and the possibility is the Cowboys will add another. The OSU coaching staff will know around 3 p.m. when Florida native and Mesa Community College (Ariz.) offensive tackle Brandon Pertile announces his decision between Oklahoma State and Florida.

The Cowboys signees so far include defensive lineman Motekiai Maihe from Tyler Junior college and Euless Trinity High School in Texas, safety and potential star linebacker Jordan Burton from Kilgore C.C. and Longview High School in Texas, and Todd Mays from NJCAA national champion East Mississippi C.C. and Olive Branch, Miss.

Mays is an interesting player that started for the Lions at running back but also is an accomplished quarterback and he has also played slot receiver.

The Cowboys also added Butler County C.C. and Centerville, Kan., offensive lineman Matt Kellerman, who committed to OSU following an official visit last weekend.

OSU will also look on the fax machine this afternoon for a letter of intent from Pertile, a 6-5, 300-pound offensive lineman from Mesa C.C. Pertile, who tore his ACL in August at Mesa and had been committed to the Cowboys since before the injury, took a visit last weekend to Florida. He said on Sunday that he would decide between the two schools on signing day and his ceremony is scheduled for 3 p.m. (Central time) Wednesday. Reports out of Florida indicate he is going to be a Cowboy signee.

That would make for five junior college signees.

Oklahoma State is also adding a transfer in former UAB starting left offensive tackle Victor Salako. The Blazers dropped football last week and Salako, who started all 12 games this season at tackle, has visited Oklahoma State and committed to transferring to the Cowboys. He arrives in Stillwater on Wednesday and will go through physicals and testing and will practice with the team later this week. Maihe, who also arrived on campus this week, is also expected to begin practicing later this week.
