OFFENSE

Coach Jerry Kill figured it would take MarQueis Gray a year to learn how to be a quarterback after two seasons at receiver, and it did. Now that he appears ready to blossom in the job, however, he could use some help. “We’ve got a quarterback,” Kill says. “We’ve got to get everybody else to step it up around him.”

With this roster, that means asking teenagers to become playmakers. Only one receiver, senior Brandon Green, has ever caught a touchdown pass, and only one tailback, oft-injured sophomore Donnell Kirkwood, has ever rushed for a score.

The Gophers signed junior college tailback James Gillum to help carry the ball, and they are counting on speedy sophomore receivers Marcus Jones and Devin Crawford-Tufts to get open. The offensive line is young, too, with no seniors and only two juniors.
