Oklahoma State QBs showing more athleticism; men’s basketball targets graduate transfer
Welcome to the Wednesday edition of our Oklahoma State DieHards morning roundup, where we take you through the biggest headlines around Oklahoma State athletics.
Oklahoma State QBs showing more athleticism
Oklahoma State’s offense still is searching for a starting quarterback.
Coach Mike Gundy discussed the ongoing position battle on Tuesday. Nothing is set in stone, but Oklahoma State’s next starting quarterback will likely bring more athleticism than Mason Rudolph.
“Taylor [Cornelius] is a lot like Mason, except he’s a better athlete,” Gundy said during an interview with okstate.com. “[Keondre] Wudtee is more athletic, still needs to be developed in the throwing game. But they’re learning.”
Hawaii graduate transfer Dru Brown and incoming freshman Spencer Sanders are also expected to contend for the job. Both newcomers will also provide athleticism considering their skillset.
Cowboys target USC Upstate graduate transfer point guard
Oklahoma State’s guard depth took a major hit this offseason. The Cowboys lost seniors Kendall Smith and Jeffrey Carroll, as well as redshirt junior Tavarius Shine (graduation) and Brandon Averette (transfer).
Coach Mike Boynton is looking for a graduate transfer to rebuild some of the lost depth. The Cowboys are specifically targeting former South Carolina Upstate point guard Mike Cunningham, according to FanRagSports.com’s Jon Rothstein.
USC Upstate grad transfer Mike Cunningham will visit Oklahoma (4/19), Oklahoma State (4/22) and Louisville (4/25), per a source. Decision to come soon after.
