Gunnar Gundy will play at OU next season — Ohio University.

Gundy announced his commitment to the Bobcats on Friday, as he’ll join a squad that went 10-3 in 2023. In three seasons with the Cowboys, Gundy went 40-for-73 for 449 yards, four passing touchdowns and four interceptions. He also had 120 rushing yards and another score.

Gundy goes to Ohio at an opportune time, as four-year starter Kurtis Rourke entered the transfer portal after this season, making a move to Indiana. Rourke threw for 7,651 yards, 50 touchdowns and 16 interceptions in his four seasons running the show for the Bobcats.

Son of longtime Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy, Gunnar walked on for the Cowboys ahead of the 2021 season, turning down scholarship offers to play in the MAC out of Stillwater High School at Eastern Michigan and Toledo.

Gunnar was thrown into action in 2022 after Spencer Sanders suffered an injury, with Gundy splitting time with Garret Rangel in Sanders’ absence. Gundy threw for 247 yards and three touchdowns as a redshirt freshman, running for another 70 yards.

Gundy was then part of the Cowboys’ three-quarterback system at the beginning of this past season alongside Rangel and Alan Bowman. On a similar number of attempts as the 2022 season, Gundy upped his completion percentage by 13 percentage points, completing 62% of his passes for 202 yards and a touchdown.

To the shock of many, Gundy entered the transfer portal on Dec. 6. However, Gundy stuck with the Cowboys through their Texas Bowl win against Texas A&M. Perhaps more surprising than Gundy entering the portal, he appeared in the Texas Bowl, running one play and scoring on a 10-yard run in the first half.

Gunnar will play for Tim Albin at Ohio, and Albin has Oklahoma ties. Albin graduated from Northwestern State in Alva before going on to be the head coach there for three seasons. Albin’s Northwestern squad won the NAIA national championship in 1999 after finishing 13-0.

It’s not officially viewed as a trade, but the Cowboys did land a tight end transfer from Ohio on Thursday night when Tyler Foster pledged to the Pokes. The channels between the two schools aren’t quite as vast as the OSU-Tulsa movement last season.
