Scout.com three-star prospect Jamie Blatnick, a 6-foot-3, 250-pound jumbo athlete from Celina High is used to success.
During his junior campaign his team went 16-0 in their way to a State Championship, and he is enjoying similar success once again this season.
“We are undefeated and in the playoffs,” Blatnick said. “I had a real good season. I have about 20 sacks in 10 games. Our defense has been wrecking things.”
Blatnick is versatile enough to play a number of positions on the high school level, but the Cowboys are recruiting him to play defensive line.
“They want me to play weak side defensive end,” he informed. “They like they way I rush the passer.”
“I play strong side defensive end or defensive tackle for my high school team. I also play offensive guard or offensive tackle.”
Blatnick believes that Oklahoma State offers him the total package, and that is what ultimately led him to give them his oral commitment to sign on National Letter of Intent Day.
“It was mainly the coaches,” Blatnick began. “It was just the fact that they were men of their word. They have nice facilities. The campus is not to big and it is not to small.”
Blatnick has taken advantage of every available opportunity to visit Stillwater this season.
“I have watched all of the home games,” he said. “The team has been winning some big games, and they should get even better next year.”
“I met all of the players and it really feels like a family. They are a program on the rise. They are a young team right now and they are bringing in some great recruiting classes the past couple of years.”
Just talking to Blatnick would have anybody excited about the future of the Oklahoma State football program.
