STILLWATER – Oklahoma State football coach Mike Gundy announced Thursday that quarterback Wes Lunt will transfer.
“We appreciate Wes and we thank him for everything he has done,” Gundy said. “He’s leaving on good terms and is making this decision based on what he thinks is best for his future.”
Lunt started five games for the Cowboys as a true freshman in 2012 and was OSU’s first true freshman opening-day starter at quarterback since at least 1950. Injuries derailed his season, but he still finished with 81 completions in 131 attempts for 1,108 yards with six touchdowns and seven interceptions.
“This was not a decision I took lightly, but it is a decision that I felt was right for me,” Lunt said. “I would like to express my sincerest gratitude to the entire Oklahoma State University community. Specifically, I would like to thank the coaches, players, and the whole OSU football family. I wish the Cowboys the best of luck in the future.”
Lunt said he did not have a transfer destination set at this time.
Lunt was part of a three-man quarterback competition at Oklahoma State this past spring with fifth-year senior Clint Chelf and sophomore J.W. Walsh.
