Continued: Nelson, Leidner give Gophers two promising quarterbacks

Last spring the Gophers had more experience at quarterback with MarQueis Gray and Max Shortell, but their skill sets were very different. Gray was more dangerous with his legs than his arm, and Shortell’s limited running ability made him a misfit for Kill’s offense.

Now, in Nelson, Leidner and third stringer Chris Streveler — an early enrollee from Crystal Lake, Ill. — the Gophers have three options that fit their style well.

“You need two who really, really can play, in case something happens,” Zebrowski said. “And then you want a third guy to keep growing.

“I think those guys are making us feel pretty good about the direction we’re heading.”
