Adam Weber, a second team All-Big Ten selection by the league's coaches in 2008, has started 38 consecutive games for Minnesota and held off stiff challenges from sophomore MarQueis Gray and freshman Moses Alipate during the Gophers' recently completed spring drills.
"We thoroughly evaluated every aspect of quarterback play throughout the spring and Adam has earned the right to be the starter entering the 2010 season," Brewster said. "MarQueis Gray will be our No. 2 quarterback, with Moses Alipate No. 3.
"We are fortunate to have three very talented young men who can all lead our team. In the final analysis, Adam's command of the offense, his leadership, decision-making and his overall play won out and right now we believe he provides our program with its best opportunity for success."
Minnesota's all-time leader in both career pass completions and yards, Weber needs 1,762 more passing yards to become just the fifth player in Big Ten history to throw for more than 10,000 yards in a career.
