And, of course, first-year Southern Miss coach Todd Monken, also an Illinois native, is responsible for recruiting Lunt to OSU.

If Lunt wanted to attend Southern Miss, those close to Monken say that it would require Gundy's “complete blessing” to make it happen.

OSU revealed Lunt's decision to transfer last week. The Cowboys starter as a true freshman at the start of the 2012 season, he threw for 1,108 yards, six touchdowns and seven interceptions during an injury-plagued first year.

Lunt competed with Clint Chelf and J.W. Walsh for the quarterback job in the spring.
