                 === Illinois lands former Ok State QB Lunt ===
 
 Champaign, IL (Sports  Network) - Former Oklahoma State University quarterback
 Wes Lunt, a native of Rochester, Ill., is transferring back home to Illinois.
 
 Last  fall, Lunt  became the  first true  freshman to  start the  season under
 center  for  the Cowboys since 1950  and started five games, but was sidelined
 with an injury.
 
 The 6-foot-5, 215-pounder will have to sit out for the 2013 season due to NCAA
 transfer  rules, but he  threw for 1,108 yards and six touchdowns for OSU last
 season  and still  has three years of remaining eligibility to help the Illini
 return to glory after a 2-10 campaign in 2012.
 
 Lunt's  decision to  transfer didn't  come without  criticism. Oklahoma  State
 coach Mike Gundy reportedly limited the quarterback's transfer list of schools
 he  wished  to attend and would  not allow him  to leave for any fellow Big-12
 Conference or Southeastern Conference programs.
