Searching for a tangible example of the impact first-class facilities can make?
Look no further than recent Oklahoma State commitment Wes Lunt of Rochester (Ill.).
The four-star quarterback knew very little about OSU before his unofficial visit to Stillwater in late May.
“I was going down there blind,” Lunt said. “I have seen most of the Big Ten facilities and there's just something different about Oklahoma State ... by far the nicest I've ever seen.”
In a matter of weeks OSU went from relatively unknown in Lunt's mind to securing his commitment.
“A bunch of people told me they take their football serious in the South,” Lunt said. “And I absolutely see that now.”
