Texas Tech Scoops Up Cibolo Steele WR

RaiderPower.com interviewed Cibolo Steele receiver Antoine Cox-Wesley, who committed to Texas Tech on Tuesday.

Mike Jinks has done it again for the Red Raiders, as the Texas Tech coaching staff landed the commitment of 2016 wide receiver Antoine Cox-Wesley.

The 6-foot-4, 180-pound outside receiver plays for Cibolo Steele--the same high school Jinks used to coach at. Tech also recently signed former Steele standouts running back Justin Stockton (2014 class) and offensive lineman Terrence Steele (2015).

"I actually just got offered tonight and committed right on the spot," said Cox-Wesley shortly after committing.

Jinks has been in contact with Cox-Wesley for around two years, and coach Morris went down to evaluate the prospect in person before the offer was extended.

"I've been talking to Coach Jinks for the past couple of years. Then he told me the wide receivers coach would come down and come look at me, and it went from there. I just ran through some drills, caught some balls."

Coach Jinks still remains in close contact with Steele head coach Scott Lehnhoff. The Knights run a pro-style offense with a heavy emphasis on the rushing attack, but Cox-Wesley was able to make the most of his opportunities as a junior by racking up 529 receiving yards and five touchdowns on 29 catches..

Cox-Wesley cited academic reasons and the relationship with coach Jinks as to why he committed on the spot.

"I'm in love, I love the school a lot, computer engineering is what I want to study, Coach Jinks and I have that bond, I want to stay connected with him and it feels like family there."

The outside receiver commit wants to take a visit to Tech and may also possibly show up at the Central Texas Satellite Camp at New Braunfels High School on June 12th.

Texas Tech is the only offer for the Steele prospect. Cox-Wesley also reports interest from Texas State, UTSA, Missouri, and Stanford.
