Today Oklahoma State Cowboys head coach Mike Gundy made the huge and shocking announcement that Quarterback Wes Lunt will no longer be playing for the Pokes. Lunt is transferring, no word yet on where to.

As a true freshman quarterback, Wes Lunt started five games for the Pokes last season and was the first true freshman to start for the university on opening-day in over 60 years. Despite injuries, keeping him off of the field and giving quarterbacks J.W. Walsh and Clint Chelf playing time, he threw for 1,108 yards with six touchdowns and seven picks.

According to Oklahoma State’s website, Wes left the university on good terms in a very classy, respectful manner. He said he did not take the decision lightly, but simply felt that it was right for him. He expressed gratitude, thanked coaches and players, and wished the Cowboys luck in the future.

This will undoubtedly shake things up a bit for the Cowboy’s offense. Originally, it was to be a three quarterback system, similar to last season. Clint Chelf has his grip on the starting position, but how will this effect the offense overall? Will it be a two quarterback system akin to what the Oklahoma Sooners did with Landry Jones and Blake Bell with J.W. Walsh stepping in as a running threat? Or is there a third man that will be getting play time now?

Surely, Mike Gundy has something up his sleeve. This should be interesting.
