Former Gopher dual-threat quarterback/wide receiver MarQueis gray is the only Minnesota Golden Gopher invited to the NFL Combine.

Gray is listed as a quarterback and will report to scouting combine on Feb. 24.

The 6-foot-4, 250 lbs senior from Indianapolis played tight end at The Texas vs. The Nation All-Star Game a week ago but struggled, perhaps positioning him to enter the combine as a quarterback.

As a Gopher, Gray accumulated 2,053 yards passing with 14 touchdowns and 11 interceptions along with 1,1731 rushing yards as a dual threat quarterback  He also notched 60 receptions at wide receiver for 766 yards and six touchdowns.

Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson, whose quarterbacking style was comparable to Gray’s, is listed as a wide receiver for the combine.
