Lunt Continues To Add Offers

It was apparent that Oklahoma State offensive coordinator Todd Monken liked what he saw when he ventured in April to Rochester, Ill., to see quarterback prospect Wes Lunt throwing in offseason workouts. Monken and the Cowboys came back with an offer, and Lunt has talked on the phone with Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy.

We first informed you of Lunt a week before Monken went up to Rochester as the 6-5, 195-pound quarterback was starting to collect a number of offers.

Lunt sent us an update Saturday.

"Virginia has offered now," text the talented quarterback. "Iowa and Duke have been by and they are calling next week with their decision (on whether to offer a scholarship). Oregon is coming here next Friday to watch me throw."

Lunt already has offers from Oklahoma State, Cincinnati, and Wisconsin, which all came during the evaluation period. Prior to that he had collected offers from Boston College, Illinois, Michigan State, Vanderbilt, and Western Michigan. Nebraska, Indiana, Northwestern, and Purdue among others have shown interest.

Lunt led Rochester last season to the Illinois Class 4A state championship and an undefeated 14-0 season. They claimed the Central State Eight Conference championship and Lunt was named first team All-Central State Eight Conference in addition to getting mention for All-State. He completed 69 percent of his passes for an impressive total of 3,107 yards with 30 touchdowns and just 4 interceptions.

Lunt has said that Oklahoma State is an interesting school to him because of the similarity in the Cowboys offense and the one he plays in and has had loads of success with at Rochester High School.

Lunt is definitely a quarterback that is considered pro-style as opposed to a dual-threat quarterback. Monken has been open about seeing any quarterback in person that the Cowboys will offer and that he is looking for a quarterback with a big arm for the 2012 recruiting class.
