OSU football: Now comes the process of choosing a quarterback

The 15 Oklahoma State spring practices are done, and now it's time for Mike Gundy and his offensive staff to meet and make a decision on who will start at quarterback: Clint Chelf, J.W. Walsh or Wes Lunt.

Gut feeling comes into play with Monken and the rest of the offensive staff, as well. But they'll also be relying heavily on the concrete evidence on film. Over the next few days, they'll break down the tape of the spring finale. Then, they'll review all the film of the quarterbacks running the first-team offense this spring.

“That gives you the best assessment of what we'll do against somebody else,” Monken said.

And while all of this is going on, Chelf, Walsh and Lunt will wait.

“(The next few days) won't be nerve-wracking, because I feel like I've put everything out on the field for them to assess,” Walsh said.

Added Chelf: “I'll be anxious to hear what they have to say and who they pick. But it's nice to be done with spring and to know we got a lot better as a football team.”

The rest of the Cowboys are curious to see who their quarterback will be, as well. And glad they don't have to make that call.

“That one is going to be a very hard decision,” running back Joseph Randle said. “Because you've got an older guy in Clint Chelf who's been here for a long time. Then you've got a guy who was probably supposed to be at prom (Saturday) or something like that (Lunt), and he's in there doing very well.

“We just have to let the coaches do their job on that one.”
