Welcome to High Noon Highlights, a place to catch up on everything you missed yesterday in Oklahoma State athletics

It’s high noon...

Taylor Cornelius Wins Starting Job After Spring Practices:

Mark Cooper of the Tulsa World reports that Taylor Cornelius has won the starting job with four spring practices left of spring ball including the spring game. While this is subject to change with newcomers Dru Brown and Spencer Sanders (neither of whom are on campus yet) putting their names in the hat come fall, Gundy is confident that if the season started tomorrow Cornelius would be his guy.

“Taylor’s won the job, so I don’t think there’s any reason to debate that,” Gundy said after Wednesday’s practice, the 11th of spring. “Coming out of spring, he’s the guy that’s got the most experience, and he’s played well enough that if we were to play next week, he’d be the guy.”

Mason Rudolph (possibly)to the Patriots:

Fellow SB Nation site focusing on the New England Patriots, Pats Pulpit wrote a great piece on how Rudolph would fit in to the Patriots organization. With the retirement of Tom Brady inching closer, writer Bernd Buchmasser highlights the need of the Pats to get someone ready under Brady and does a scouting report on Rudolph. He highlights his strengths and weaknesses.

If you are drawing a quarterback from scratch, chances are he looks exactly like 6’4, 235 lbs Mason Rudolph. And the ideal size is far from the only positive he brings to the table. As a three year starter for the Cowboys, Rudolph also has plenty of experience and an impressive volume of production having attempted almost 1,500 passes (of which he completed 63.2%) for over 13,000 yards along with 92 touchdowns and only 26 interceptions.

I love that description for Rudolph. Getting to spend time learning from one of the greatest head coaches and quarterbacks the game has ever seen will be an awesome experience for one of the greatest QBs Oklahoma State has ever seen.

Gundy Talks About His Team 10 Days Ahead of Spring Game:

Mike Gundy talked the media yesterday about where his team is at ahead of the April 28th spring game. With a week and a half left, Gundy gave his thoughts on his team. He in particular, he talked about the defense.

“I just like what schemes we’re using,” Gundy said. “I think we’re a very fast defense. We move side to side really well. We challenge in a lot of different areas.”

Gundy said that over all they have a lot work to do still but he’s happy with where his squad is at for this time in the year.
