Could Lunt be the answer in 2012?
It’s not hard to understand what intrigued Oklahoma State offensive coordinator Todd Monken about Rochester (Ill.) quarterback Wes Lunt. The 6-foot-6, 185-pound prospect picked the Pokes over several other offers including Boston College and Michigan State. He’s likely to join the competition to become OSU’s starting quarterback in 2012.
He’s a tall, lanky quarterback prospect with the potential to grow.
And, maybe, most importantly, he’s a winner.
Lunt passed for 3,136 yards and 30 touchdowns in leading Rochester to a 14-0 record and Class 4A state title in Illinois last season. He completed 212 of 323 passes (65.6 percent) and threw just four interceptions in 2010.

When looking at the highlights of Lunt in action, you immediately notice his size and his athleticism (check out his throws while running to his left). He definitely appears to have the physical skills to succeed at OSU.
Like every quarterback, the key to Lunt’s success could be his ability to process things quickly, execute quickly and throw accurately while under pressure. All three things are hard to evaluate before a player arrives on campus but Pokes’ fans should be pleased to see Lunt commit because the potential is there.
