As I perused The Washington Post the other day in search
of some inspiring news from the nation's capitol, I ran across an
interesting advertisement. It was sponsored by The M Club and
The Terrapin Club of the University of Maryland for the ex-
press purpose of luring high school basketball stars to that
I have to admit that though the ad hits an all-time low in one
of the lowest forms of collegiate athletic activity, recruiting, it did
have a cerain flair. In bold letters it is proclaimed that WE WANT
pictures of four of the top prep players in the D.C. area.
The manuever is part of new Terrapin coach Lefty Dreisell's cam-
paign to turn Maryland into "the basketball capitol of the world."
Apparently the method works since one of the four pictured athletes,
Jim O'Brien, has already signed a Maryland tender.
. Dreisell developed a reputation as a top notch recruiter while at
Davidson and has vowed that he will "do anything that is legal to get
players." What he really means is that he will do anything that is
legal plus anything he can get away with. The reaction to the 'd-
vertispment has been violent and protests have flown into the
NCAA. However, protests will be useless since Dreisell didn't actually
break any specific rule. The only charge that can be levelled against
him is that he displayed poor ethics.
Of course, a sense of ethics is something that is sorely lacking
among most recruiters anyway and the reason is understandable.
College athletics are big business and the best players are needed
to win. Thus a premium is placed upon strong recruiting.
Dreisell and the operation that he has begun at Maryland
typifies big time recruiting. After summarily leaving Davidson for
the greener monetary pastures of College Park, he immediately sign-
ed George Raveling as his assistant.
Raveling is a former Villanova and pro player and is highly re-
garded as a talent scout. He is generally considered the man most
responsible for bringing Howard Porter to Villanova. But Raveling's
greatest asset happens to be that he is black.
Since southern schools let down the racial barrier, the black
athlete has become the most sought after prize in the country. It
is a matter of status for the southern basketball powers to have a
black 'sar in the line-up. Dreisell followed this formula at Davidson
when he recruited Mike Maloy and- is atstempting to do the same
at Maryland. Two of the players pictured in the infamous advertise-
ment, James prown and Floyd Lewis, are black. Coincidence, huh?
Dreisell also knows the value of money in recruiting. At
Davidson he had an extremely small budget and only 14 schol-
arships to spread over a four year period. He now gets 20 tenders
and the backing of a great deal of funds. The $594 needed to pay.
for the ad all came out of the coffers of the two main booster
clubs of the University, Dreisell certainly has more to work with
now than when he used to ride around in a station wagon to see
high school players and then sleep in the back with a gun by
his side.
Dreisell in particularly and coaches in general can't really be
blamed for their tactics, though. It is the emphasis placed on win-
ning and the possession of star players that makes the recruiting
game into a war.
Actually, Maryland may have found a good way to keep college
scouts from hounding prep athletes. Schools can just advertise and
won't have to spend the time and money involved in visiting all of
the top prospects.
Of course, the obvious solution would be for the colleges to
emulate the pros in all respects and establish a common draft.
Since they all pay similar wages to their athletic slaves, a draft
would certainly be a more equitable solution to the talent hunt.
Besides, think of what it could do for college basketball. I'd like
to see what would happen to UCLA if John Wooden had the 500th
draft pick for three straight years. He might be forced into using
Snoopy in the backcourt.
And then just think of what would happen if another Lew Al-
cindor came along. Over 200 college teams would lost every game
in an attempt'to get the first draft pick.
I really think that such a system has merit. It would spread
out the talent, make the game more interesting, and eliminate
the need for such shabby recruiting devices as newspaper adver-
tisements. It's only too Pad that the whole scheme is impossible.
After all, college athletics are amateur athletics, aren't they?
