Oklahoma State keeping Lunt from transferring to SEC, Southern Miss

Quarterback Wes Lunt's transfer list just got shorter.

Oklahoma State is restricting Lunt from transferring to either Southeastern Conference schools or Southern Miss, where Lunt's former offensive coordinator Todd Monken is now the head coach.

Cowboys spokesman Gavin Lang confirmed the news via email after CBSSports.com spoke with a source with direct knowledge of Lunt's transfer process. When asked why the SEC and Southern Miss were restricted, Lang said that decision is between Lunt and coach Mike Gundy.

Lunt was reportedly considering SEC schools Tennessee and Vanderbilt along with Southern Miss, Louisville and Illinois. One college coach tracking the Lunt situation heard about the restriction from Lunt's high school coach, Derek Leonard out of Rochester (Ill.) High School.

The only SEC team Oklahoma State has on its immediate schedule is Mississippi State in 2013. Oklahoma State and Southern Mississippi are not currently scheduled to play.

Lunt competed in Oklahoma State spring ball with Clint Chelf and J.W. Walsh for the starting position before deciding to transfer. Chelf appears to have the inside track on the starting job.

Lunt completed 81 of 131 passes for 1,108 yards and six touchdowns with seven interceptions as a true freshman last season.
