MarQueis Gray has passed his ACT and is headed back to the University of Minnesota.
”Yeah, I passed,” Gray said in a text message this morning. ”I plan on coming back when the bowl practices start.”
(Note to readers: While trying to post this as quickly as possible, I mistyped bowl as boal while transcribing the text message into the story. My bad, not Gray’s)
Gray, an Indianapolis native, was one of the most highly-rated dual-threat quarterbacks on the recruiting scene coming out of Ben Davis High School. He began practice with the Gophers during training camp, but had to re-take his ACT test after his test score was flagged by the ACT board. Gray took the test again Oct. 11 and posted a qualifying score.
Gray won’t be able to practice with the team during the Gophers’ preparation for their bowl game, but he will be on-campus. He plans on enrolling in school in January and would be eligible to practice with the Gophers in the spring.
