Illinois make Lunt transfer official

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — Illinois football coach Tim Beckman says quarterback Wes Lunt's transfer from Oklahoma State is official.

Beckman said Tuesday that the sophomore-to-be signed paperwork to transfer to Illinois. Lunt held a news conference in his hometown, Rochester, to announce his plans to join the Illini.

Beckman said in a news release that he was thrilled to add Lunt.

The quarterback started five games as a freshman for the Cowboys. But injury knocked him out of the lineup and he announced plans to leave Oklahoma State after the season.

Lunt will have to sit out 2013 under NCAA transfer rules.

He's a 6-4, strong-armed pocket passer and considered an upgrade for the Illini. He threw for more than 7,000 yards while leading Rochester to two state titles.
