OSU football: Gunnar Gundy to walk on for Cowboys in 2021

Gunnar Gundy is staying close to home for college.

Gundy told The Oklahoman on Friday he plans to walk on and play for the Oklahoma State football team, starting in the spring of 2021. Gundy, the son of Oklahoma State football coach Mike Gundy, graduated from Stillwater High School on Friday. 

Gunnar is going to sit out a year from playing football. He's going to enroll at OSU as a part-time student in the spring and fall of 2020 semesters. In the spring of 2021, Gunnar said he's going to enroll as a full-time student and walk on to the football team.

"I'm waiting to start my four-year clock so I can hopefully get to play there and finish my career there," Gunnar said. 

Gunnar had an offer from Eastern Michigan with numerous other schools showing interest. During his senior season, Gundy completed 224-of-300 passes for 3,481 yards with 47 touchdowns and three interceptions.
