MarQueis Gray has grown up and played his football in the heart of Big 10 country and even though he was presented with some tremendous opportunities from other schools like Oregon he just felt that Golden Gophers were the right fit.


Minnesota Golden Gophers are getting a terrific talent in MarQueis Gray, a 6-foot-4, 205-pound quarterback from Ben Davis High in Ind. Gray came in to the easily as the most underrated quarterback and has done nothing but impress.

He throws a nice ball and has terrific athleticism, but his biggest asset may be his confidence and poise in the pocket and around his teammates.

Gray broke his non-throwing arm early on in his senior season, but has not looked rusty at all. He came in to this game ready to compete and push for a starting position.

Minnesota head coach Tim Brewster, whose son Nolan Brewster is playing for the West squad, has been building a tremendous class of recruits, and now he has most likely locked down his quarterback of the future when he watched Gray slide on a Gopher cap during the live television broadcast.

“At Minnesota they run a spread offense and the coaches are really nice there,” Gray informed. “ I took my official visit to Minnesota and they showed me a lot f love, and I know that they would love me if I went there for the next few years.”

Gray had narrowed it down to two schools. Minnesota and Oregon, but he never had the opportunity to visit the Ducks, and for that reason it was pretty much a no doubter that he was going to go with the school that provided him homey feeling.

“I just try to put myself in the best situation with where I feel the most comfortable at and that was one of the two schools that I definitely felt the most comfortable with,” Gray explained.
