PHILIP NELSON OUTTAKES

• MarQueis Gray is the Gophers' presumed starter at quarterback for his senior season next fall, which likely means Nelson will spend 2012 learning the offense as a redshirt. "If that's what the coaches want, that's fine," Nelson said. "MarQueis is such a great athlete, there's going to be a spot for him in the NFL some day." Once Gray graduates, Nelson will be part of a pool that figures to include Tom Parish, Max Shortell and fellow 2012 signee Mitch Leidner of Lakeville South. "There's going to be competition no matter where you go," Nelson said.

• Nelson's roommate at Minnesota is wide receiver Isaac Fruechte, who is transferring from Rochester Community and Technical College. Fruechte's father, Carl, is head coach at Caledonia High School and once coached Mankato West coach Mark Esch. "Every offseason, we scrimmaged Caledonia, so I've known Isaac awhile," Nelson said. "Over the summer, I threw to him quite a bit."

• Though many recruiters expected him to end up at Wisconsin, Nelson said Iowa actually was his second choice behind Minnesota. "They probably worked harder than anyone but [the Gophers], and I really loved the atmosphere at their games," Nelson said. "They have a great tradition."
