Oklahoma State released quarterback Wes Lunt from his scholarship last week to allow him to transfer to another school, but apparently not just any school.
The Cowboys have restricted Lunt from going to a Southeastern Conference program or Southern Mississippi, CBSSports.com reported Friday.
Oklahoma State didn't specify the reason for the limitations, which normally are based on transfers within the conference or to a school on a future schedule. According to CBSSports, com, school spokesman Gavin Lang said the matter was between Lunt and Cowboys coach Mike Gundy.
Lunt reportedly is interested in going to Southern Mississippi, Tennessee and Vanderbilt in the SEC, Louisville or Illinois, which is in his home state. Oklahoma State plays one SEC school, Mississippi State, in 2013. Lunt's former offensive coordinator, Todd Monken, is head coach at Southern Miss.
After starting as a true freshman last year, Lunt appeared to lose a battle for the job in the spring with Clint Chelf and J.W. Walsh
Lunt threw for 1,108 yards with six touchdowns and seven interceptions last season.
