One snap away
Oklahoma State is one snap away from handing the reins of its offense to Johnny Deaton or maybe even Nathan Sorenson.
The Cowboys incoming freshmen will join Clint Chelf in the battle to back up Brandon Weeden during fall camp. Deaton rose to the No. 2 spot on the depth chart in the spring and the Cowboys will have to prepare him –or the quarterback who beats him out– to step in if Weeden misses any game time.
When asked if Deaton enters the fall as OSU’s No. 2 quarterback, coach Mike Gundy said: “I think so. I don’t know that anybody has earned that spot but he’ll get as much work as the next guy.”
Sorenson could be the biggest threat to Deaton securing the backup quarterback role. He’s gotten solid reviews for his desire since he stepped on campus this summer.
“We have to get something done with all of them,” Gundy said. “We have to give them enough information that if they’re put in that situation (put in the game) they can execute. That depends on the player and who it is.”
