STILLWATER, Okla. — While true freshman Wes Lunt has taken over as the starting quarterback for the Oklahoma State football team, redshirt freshman J.W. Walsh is still fighting to see some time on the playing field — even if it may be at a different position.

OSU coach Mike Gundy said at Big 12 Football Media Days in Dallas that they are working to find a way to work the athletic Walsh into the offense.

"There's always discussions on trying to get any player involved in our team, on offense or defense, that can help us win or deserves it," Gundy said. "... We would love to find ways to get him involved, and ultimately, I think we will."

Coming out of high school, Walsh was ranked by as the nation's No. 4 dual-threat quarterback. As a senior, he passed for 3,200 yards and rushed for over 1,400 yars with 35 combined touchdowns.
