The recruiting game

LEARN TO PLAY BRIDGE

EVERY TUESDAY:
STARTING JAN. 27th

By AL SHACKELFORD
"If you miss one bus, there's
always another one on the way."
So philosophizes Michigan as-
sistant basketball coach Fred
Snowden on the ups and downs
of basketball recruiting. Lately'
thanks to the efforts of Snow-
den and recruiting coordinator
and assistant freshman c o a c h
Dick Honig, recruiting is way
up.
"We have a good chance to
get a boy from any area we go
into now," says Snowden, and
points to New York as an area
which has recently opened up to
Wolverine recruiters.
"New York has belonged ex-
clusively to a handful of schools
- Marquette, South Carolina,
UCLA, St. Johns," explains
Snowden. He cites the recruiting
of freshman star Henry Wil-
more from New York as proof
that Michigan can now recruit
with success in that city, and
adds "I don't know if those oth-
er schools will object to a new
member in their exclusive club."
IN REGARDS to Wilmore,
Snowden remembers with ob-
vious staisfaction that "South
Carolina thought they had
Henry wrapped up.
"We'll do our fair share in
the East," claims Snowden,
"but we don't have to go to
New York City for blue-chip

talent." He sees Detroit and its
outlying metropolitan area as
an excellent source of basket-
ball talent, and estimates that
Michigan need recruit only two
top players a year from out of
state.
The emphasis of this year's re-
cruiting is on getting guards
and "tall, agile forwards," ac-
cording to Snowden.
"We want a big, quick team,"
he says with an eye on the fu-
ture.
PRIME TARGETS for Mich-
igan recruiters ,include the fol-
lowing prep standouts:
-Six-two Tom Kivisto of East
High in Aurora, llinois, current-
ly averaging 25 points per game.
Kivisto was named All-state last
year after leading his team to a
fourth-place finish in the state
tournament and in one game
this year scored 54 points.
-Six-five John Mills of Gray
Court-Owings High in Laurens,
South Carolina, who goes Kiv-
isto a few better in scoring for
a single game: 74 points against
Ford High. Mills' statistics are
fabulous, including a 34 point
scoring average, 22 rebounds
a game and a field goal percent-
age of 60 percent.
-John Williamson, W i I b u r
Cross High, New Haven, Con-
necticut, rated by Michigan
freshman coach George Pomey
as "probably the best player in
the eastern seaboard." William-
son is perennially rated among

the top prep players in t h e
country by basketball publica-
tions and would be a potent ad-
dibion to Wolverine basketball.
-Six-five Kris Beryman of
Harper High in Chicago, Illi-
nois, currently the state's top
scorer at 35.5 points per game.
Among the other top play-
ers sought by Michigan are 6'9"
Dwight Jones, Wheatley High,
Houston, Texas; Jim Bradley,
East Chicago, Indiana; S a m
Puckett of Chicago, Illinois; and
a host of fine Michigan preps,
including Doug McKenzie from
Warren Fitzgerald, Rick Drew-
itz from Garden City West,
Dave Clancy from Pontiac Nor-
thern and Mike Robinson from
Detroit Northeastern.
Looking ahead another year,
Snowden calls Michigan high
school stars Lindsay Hairston of
Detroit Kettering and Campy
Russell of Pontiac Central "two
of the three finest juniors in the'
country." The third, says Snow-
den, is Henry Williams f r a m
Norristown, Pennsylvania.
Snowden names the metro
areas of Detroit, New Yory City
and Chicago along with t h e
Louisiana-Texas area as t h e
prime hotbeds of high school
talent.
ONE OBVIOUS recent downer
in Michigan's recruiting was los-
ing Ralph Simpson, the former
Detroit Pershing playmate of
Spencer Haywood, to Michigan
State.

Beginners-7:00 to 9:00 P.M.

"We would have had Ralph,"
recalls Snowden, "but at t h e
time he was making up his mind
we had a coaching changeover
here." At this time Dave Strack
was promoted and John Orr had
not yet taken over as Michigan's
head basketball coach.
Surprisingly, Snowden does
not mourn the loss of Simpson,
saying "there are others around
who are every bit as good."
A strong antidote for the pain
of losing Simpson was the re-
cruiting of this year's potent
freshmen, who include Wilmore
and former state high schoolers
Ernie Johnson, Leon Roberts
and John Lockard.
HOT TIPS on talented prep
stars come from alumnae, per-
sonal contacts of Michigan re-
cruiters, fans and various high
school basketball publications.
As Snowden says, "You can be
sitting in a movie and h a v e
someone come up and tell you
about a player."
The usual recruiting procedure
is to first make sure the player
sought is a senior, then obtain
his schedule and visit with his
coach and parents. The recruit-
er is then allowed two visits
with the boy at home; after
that the recruiting procedure
can escalate to inviting the boy
for a campus tour, dating him
up with a cheerleader or any
number of other things, until he
makes up his mind.
Credit for Michigan's recent
upsurge in recruiting goes to
Snowden, Honig and the other
recruiters. As Snowden com-
ments, Recruiting is a t e a m
effort and takes a lot of hard
work by many people."
Judginig from recent recruit-
ing, it looks like a whole fleet
of big buses are headed the Wol-
verine's way, and their arrival
could promise great things for
Michigan's basketball future.

PITT PICKS FIRST
Pros hold player draft today

INFORMATION AND REGISTRATION- -5 Weekdays

NEW YORK (I) - Quarterback
Terry Bradshaw of Louisiana
Tech, defensive tackle Mike Mc-
Coy of Notre Dame and quarter-
back Mike Phipps of Purdue are
expected to be the first n a m e s
picked today when the professional
football clubs hold their annual
combined draft.
The draft by the 26 teams of
the merged American and Na-
tional Football Leagues will start
at 10 a.m. EST and will run
through tomorrow or until 17
rounds have been completed and
442 players have been selected.
Pittsburgh gets first pick be-
cause it finished with a 1-13 won-
lost record in the NFL and won
a coin toss from the Chicago
Bears who had a similar record.
The teams draft in reverse order
of the club's percentage ratings in
the combined NFL-AFL standings
for 1969 with two exceptions. Min-
nesota, the Super Bowl loser, will
be 25th and Kansas City, the Sup-
er Bowl winner, will be 26th and
last in the first round.
Green Bay, Cleveland and San
Francisco each will have two first-
round selections because of trades.
The Packers acquired the Bear's
No. 1 pick, second in the entire

a

draft, when they sent linebackerI
Lee Roy Caffey, .running b a ck
Elijah Pitts and guard-center Bobl
Hyland to Chicago.
Cleveland obtained Miami's top?
choice, No. 3 in the order of se-
lection, Monday in an 11th hour
swap that sent ace receiver Paul
Warfield to the Dolphins.rP
Washington gave up its No. 1 to
the 49ers in a deal that brought
offensive tackle Walter Rock to
the Redskins.2
Pro football experts expect the1
Steelers to take Bradshaw, unless ;
they trade away their rights, the
Packers to gray McCoy and the1
Browns to take Phipps.
Trades probably will be made
right up to post time. Previous
deals have left teams with a vary-
ing number of selections, topped
by St. Louis' 22 all the way down1
to the Los Angeles Rams' 12. 7
When two or more teams were
tied in the season standings, a
coin flip decided the initial order.
They flip flop back and fourth on
succeeding rounds.
This is the order for the first
round:
1, Pittsburgh. 2, Green Bay from
Chicago. 3, Cleveland from Miami.
4, Boston. 5, Buffalo. 6, Philadel-
phia. 7, Cincinnati. 8, St. Louis.
9, San Francisco. 10, New Orleans.
11, Denver. 12, Atlanta. 13, New
York Giants. 14, Houston. 15, San;

In addition to Bradshaw, Phipps
and McCoy the pros are expected
to zoom in early on defensive- end
Phil Olsen of Utah State, M i k e
Reid, defensive tackle from Penn
State, Steve Owens, the Oakland
running back, and Heisman Tro-
phy Award winner; Jim Mandich,
Michigan tight end; Dennis Shaw,
San Diego quarterback; Ken Bur-
roughs, Texas Southern receiver;
Bob Anderson, Colorado's All-
American running back; Steve
Kiner, Tennessee linebacker; Mar-
gene Adkins, a wide receiver who .
played out his option in Canada;
Ted Koy, Texas running back;
Charlie Pittman, Penn State run-
ner, and Jim Otis, Ohio S t a t e
fullback.
Although there are many top
flight football players in the 1969
crop there is none to compare with
the glamor of 0. J. Simpson, the
Southern California'flash who was
taken by the Buffalo Bills as the
No. 1 pick a year ago.
Tramp olinist
fini.shes 2nd.
Michigan freshman Chris Keane,
one of three Wolverine trampoline
specialists to compete in an open
invitational meet in Memphis,
Tennessee last t weekend, placed
second in a field of over 20 con-
testants.
Keane finished behind Wayne
Miller, a former Michigan great
who graduated last year.
Two other Wolverines, junior
Tim Wright and sophomore Paul
Kyprie, also competed in the meet.
Both Kyprie and Wright narrowly
missed placing in the finals.
