Miller recrutting key to OSU

} Ohio State coach Eldon Miller is a
masterful recruiter. He proved his
prowess once again in the battle for
high school talent by nabbing an out-
standing 1979 group of players: Clark
Kellogg, Granville Waiters, Larry
Huggins, Mitch Haas, and Nate Sims.
Since taking over at OSU four years

When Miller's five incoming fresh-
men are added to a ballclub that last
year finished 19-12 and advanced to the
final four in the NIY, you end up with a
powerhouse. The Buckeyes, ranked
second and fourth in preseason polls by
the UPI and AP, respectively, return
"'His greatest asset right
now, as far, as the team is
concerned, is his reboun-
ding strength. He's a 'er-
satile forward, and we
haven't hada versatile for-
ward with size."
-Master recruiter
Eldon Miller,
speaking about
Clark Kellogg,
his top prize.

The Big Ten:
HE HAS MOVED right in to start at
one forward, allowing 6-2 Carter Scott t
move to the backcourt, where he should
be more effective. Needless to say,
Miller is thrilled with his top recruit.
"He has a lot of potential," Miller
said at the annual Big Ten Luncheon
two Sundays ago. "We have a lot of
veterans returning, so the pressure on
him is not as great.
"His greatest asset right now, as far
as the team is concerned, is his beboun-
ding strength. He's a versatile forward,
and we haven't had a versatile forward
with size."
Kellogg overshadows the other
freshmen, but Miller would have had a
great recruiting year even if he hadn't
landed him. Miller expects Huggins, a
6-3 guard who was the Ohio AP Class
"A" Player of the Year in 1979, to be
able to help immediately in the back-
court, spelling either Ransey or Scott.
"HE HAS PLAYED the most solid
basketball from the beginning to the
end," Miller said. "We didn't think he'd

be as far along as he is now, but he's
had a good high school coaching, and
he's a complete ballplayer."
Waiters (6-10) may be the number
two pivotman by season's end.
Recruited out of East High School in
Columbus, he played very respectably
against Kellogg in the state title game,
scoring 21 points and grabbing 20 boar-
"He is now adjusting to playing with
some of out older front-line players,"
Miller explained. "The game is a little
spread out more; and we're looking for
him to give him a little help."
Haas is a 6-7 forward who Miller
recruited out of northern California,
where he was Player of the Year in
1979, and Sims comes out of Brooklyn,
where he won all-New York City honors
as a high school senior.
IT'S A VERY talented group, but only
Kellogg and Huggins are likely to see
much action because the starting lineup
of Ransey, Scott, Williams, Kellogg,
and Jim Smith is set.
This is the seventh in a series of
profiles of Michigan's nine Big Ten
opponents, which have been written
by staff writers Stan Bradbury, alan
Fanger, and Mark Mihanovic.

On the court and
field: B-ball trades
By The Associated Press
LANDOVER, Md. (AP) - The Washington Bullets traded guard Phil
Chenier to the Indiana Pacers yesterday for what the Bullets termed "future
Chenier, 29, selected on the first round of the 1971 National Basketball
Association draft as a hardship choice, was chosen to the All-Star team three
times before encountering back problems. He averaged 20 points a game for six
consecutive seasons before being limited to only 63 games the past two years.
Chenier underwent surgery for a ruptured disc on Sept, 1, 1978, and wasn't
activated until Feb. 13. He averaged 5.8 points in 27 games. The previous
season, he averaged 14.1 points in 36 games and didn't play at all after Jan. 8.
This year, with guard Kevin Grevey out with a pulled hamstring muscle,
Chenier started 14 games for the Bullets and averaged 10.1 points in 20 games.
The trade of Chenier enabled Washington to reactivate Grevey, who played
in the first six games of the season and averaged 11.8 points before being placed
on the iniured reserve list.
Chambliss traded to Atlanta
TORONTO - The Toronto Blue Jays traded slugger Chris Chambliss and
reserve infielder Luis Gomez to the Atlanta Braves yesterday for three young
prospects - outfielder Barry Bonnell, infielder Pat Rockett and pitcher Joe
The deal was made after a long series of discussions between the two clubs
at baseball's annual winter meetings. Rockett, 24, was immediately assigned to
Syracuse of the International League.
Chambliss never got to appear in a Toronto uniform. The 31-year-old first
baseman was acquired by the Blue Jays last fall from the New York Yankees,
where he hit .280 with 18 home runs and 63 runs batted in.
Tigers deal Arroyo to Twins
TORONTO - The Detroit Tigers sent right-handed pitcher Fernando
Arroyo to the Minnesota Twins Toledo farm club of the International League
yesterday in exchange for left-handed reliever Jeff Holly who was assigned to
Evansville of the American Association.
Arroyo and Holly each have experience in parts of three major league
seasons. Arroyo was 10-19 with a 4.33 ERA for the Tigers in 1975-77-78. Holly was
with the Twins in parts of 1977-78-79 with a 3-4 record and 5.60 ERA.

The addition of Kellogg was the key
for the Bucks. He was one of the most

17 rebounds per game during his senior
year at St. Joseph High School in
Cleveland, including an incredible 51-
point, 24 !rebound performance in the
state championship game.

National Park Concessioners.
To get these jobs you must know how and when to apply for them. I've
compiled a job hunters guidebook that tells you all the qualifications, necessary
addresses and forms you will need to get the job you want. Also included is the
current salary information for the summer of 1980.
Don't cheat yourself out of this opportunity. Applications for these jobs must
be in by January 15. If you act now, I'll send you, at no additional cost, job
information on Federal overseas jobs.

Gator Bowl tickets are quickly
becoming a precious commodity in Ann
Arbor and Jacksonville. But why? The
main reason for the decreasing number
of tickets for the 35th Gator Bowl is the
massive number of Michigan students,
faculty, staff, and alumni that want to
see the Wolverines battle the Tar Heels
on December 28th.
Many people wondered why North
Carolina is in the Gator Bowl instead of
the Atlantic Coast Conference cham-
pion North Carolina State Wolfpack.
"We're not bound to any conference,
and so we take the best team. North
Carolina beat North Carolina State, it
was the only team in the nation to
defeat Pittsburgh, and it beat South
Carolina 28-0_ North Carolina has

always been a good representative,"
said Gator Bowl informational director
Ted Emery in referring to the Gator
Bowl's selection of the Tar Heels over
N.C. State.
OPTIMISM IS ALSO up in Ann Arbor
for the Gator Bowl, as Michigan will be
making its first appearance in
Jacksonville. The Wolverines played in
the Orange Bowl in 1976, and they have
played in the Rose Bowl the last three
years. Many people are buying tickets
so they can watch Michigan football in
addition to enjoying some of the Florida
"I think we'll have a good contingent
of fans at the game," said Michigan
ticket manager Al Renfrew. As of
yesterday, the Michigan ticket office-

K \
t 2'

had approximately 3500 tickets left out
of the 10,800 it had originally, received.
Where did all the tickets that Michigan
received go?
MANY HAVE GONE to the 14,000
Michigan alumni that live in the five
state area (North and South Carolina,
Georgia, Florida, and Alabama), and
want to watch their alma mater play in
a bowl game.
As for the other, tickets that were sold
by Michigan, Renfrew said that tickets
went on sale on November 20, and that
sales have been pretty consistent.
The tickets that Michigan received
were priced at $12.00 apiece, but with
the price of shipping, mailing, and han-
dling, an additional 50 cent service
sharge has been added to the cost.
The location of the tickets which
Michigan received is from the 35-yard-
line to the middle of the end zone, and
they are fairly good seats.
THE SEATING capacity of the Gator.
Bowl is officially 65,314, but Emery said
that extra seats in the. end zone and
along the field are set up. This expains
why the Gator Bowl's attendance over
the last two yearshas been over 72,000.
Emery went on to say that there are
still a souple of hundred scattered seats
located in the end zones available for
The Gator Bowl is immensely
popular in Florida, as 37,000 tickets.
were sold before the teams playing in it
were even announced. When it was an-
nounced that the Wolverines would face
North Carolina, there was a rush for
tickets at the Gator Bowl offices,
mostly from Michigan alumni in the
South and North Carolina fans.
It is doubtful that many tickets will be
available in Jacksonville on the eve of
the Gator Bowl, so if you plan to travel
down to Florida, make sure that you've
got tickets first.
We know about
all the other games.
