Troy Stoudermire and MarQueis Gray are not done playing college football just yet.

The outgoing seniors will participate in separate All-Star Games in the coming weeks. Stoudermire will play in the upcoming Casino Del Sol College All-Star Game on Friday, Jan. 11 at Kino Stadium in Tucson, Ariz., while Gray is scheduled to play in the Texas vs. The Nation game on Feb. 2 at Eagle Stadium in Allen, Texas. 

Stoudermire is the only Gopher participating in the Casino Del Sol College All-Star Game and is one of three Big Ten players in the event, which is in its second year. The inaugural game produced six NFL draft picks and 67 players who were signed to an NFL contract. The game starts at 6 p.m. CT and will be broadcast on ESPN3.

Stoudermire started all 12 games for the Gophers and led Minnesota in tackles (82) and solo tackles (59). He also broke up three passes and notched 3.5 tackles-for-loss. Stoudermire returned 22 kicks this year for 513 yards as he became the NCAA all-time leader in kickoff return yards with 3,615 yards.

Gray is the lone Gopher in the Texas vs. The Nation game as well. The game, which kicks off at 1:30 p.m. on Feb. 2, was established in 2006. Since the game began, more than 100 players have been selected in the NFL Draft and more than 500 have signed with an NFL team.

Gray played both quarterback and wide receiver at Minnesota this year, while battling an injury. He rushed for 390 yards and five touchdowns from the quarterback position, while also passing for 472 yards and five touchdowns. Gray also caught 12 passes for 121 yards this year.
