Tim Brown:

Oklahoma State QB Lunt to transfer

The SportsXchange

Quarterback Wes Lunt is leaving Oklahoma State after one season to transfer to another school, coach Mike Gundy announced Thursday.

Lunt emerged as the No. 1 quarterback at the start of last season and became the first true freshman to start a Cowboys opener since at least 1950. He made an impressive debut, completing 11 of 11 passes for 129 yards against Savannah State.

But assorted injuries limited Lunt, a four-star recruit, to five starts and 1,108 passing yards with six touchdowns and seven interceptions last season.

Coming out of spring practice last month, junior Clint Chelf remained the team's No. 1 quarterback after starting the final six games last season. J.W. Walsh also was in the mix with Lunt.

"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."

If LUnt transfers to another FBS program, he will have three years of eligibility remaining.
