OSU football: The race is on for starting quarterback

Center Evan Epstein can't predict which of the three candidates has the lead so far.

All three quarterbacks still have their areas that need improvement, as well.

None of them have ever been in the college football spotlight before, and they're all trying to build chemistry with their teammates. Chelf is still working to prove he can lead the way a quarterback needs to. Walsh still wants to improve his arm strength. And Lunt is still learning the offense.

“All three guys bring something different to the table at this point,” Gundy said. “Each needs to continue to improve in their strengths and in their weaknesses. But for the most part, you have to find a way to lead the team and win games.”

Gundy maintains the hope of naming a starter by the end of the spring, so that player can lead the Cowboys during summer workouts where coaches cannot be present. But no one knows specifically when an announcement will come.

And Epstein isn't about to make his own prediction.

“I can't,” Epstein said. “I just work here. I'm going to snap it and block for them like they're my own children.”
