Mike Gundy doesn’t want to play two quarterbacks to start the 2019 season, but with the battle between senior transfer Dru Brown and true freshman Spencer Sanders so close, he may not have an option.
But that’s good news for Sanders.
You might be asking how it’s a good thing and the answer is simple. Any time you have a true freshman pushing a redshirt senior with over 5,000 yards and 37 touchdowns in his career, that shows that he has the potential to be something special. Sanders has plenty of talent and he could continue the Cowboys’ tradition of having an elite passer.
Taylor Cornelius was a surprise star for Oklahoma State last season but his time as QB1 was short-lived as he was just a one-year starter. Gundy would probably love nothing more than to name Sanders the starter and ride his talent for three or four years instead of going with another one-year starter for his program.
Sanders has a strong arm and can make most throws and he can burn opponents with his legs, too. He’s going to be tough to stop in the Big 12 for years to come.
