— OSU quarterback to transfer

STILLWATER – Oklahoma State football coach Mike Gundy announced Thursday that quarterback Wes Lunt will transfer.

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.

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.
