Add another name into the competition to replace Brandon Weeden.

Rochester (Ill.) quarterback Wes Lunt has committed to Oklahoma State according to multiple sources. A 6-foot-6, 185 pounder, Lunt picked the Cowboys over Boston College, Illinois, Louisville, Michigan State, Vanderbilt, Virginia and Wisconsin.

Lunt could join J.W. Walsh, Clint Chelf and Johnny Deaton in the battle to replace Weeden, the Pokes’ current quarterback, and become OSU’s starting quarterback in 2012.

Recruited by offensive coordinator Todd Monken, Lunt visited Stillwater in late May.

“I knew they had nice facilities,” Lunt told GoPokes.com after his visit. “Everyone was talking about how nice it was, but you just don’t know until you get there.”

A pocket passer in the mold of Weeden, Lunt’s commitment is another sign the Cowboys have fully committed to their version of the “Air Raid” attack.
