Forms sent by the athletic de-
partment to a high school coach
ask him to rate his player by
Big Ten standards in all areas
of the game. He is also asked
if he believes his player could
start as a freshman, as a sopho-
more, or whether he would be
better off at a smaller school.
Once contact is made with a top
prospect, one of the Michigan
coaches will see him play at least
once and meet with him and his
parents. Correspondence is main-
tained throughout the season and
arrangements are made for him
to visit Ann Arbor.
"We are allowed to offer each
potential recruit one paid visit to
see us for a weekend," said
Dutclher. "He'll meet some ball-
players, see a game if we're play-
ing, and talk to faculty members
in his intended field of work."
"We let a recruit talk to guys
on the team as much as they
want to without being there," he
related. "We feel that the best
way for a boy to find out about
our program is to talk to the
people directly involved." .....
Only after a recruit has given
a special verbal commitment to
come to Michigan is he offered a
tender. "We offer them room,
board, tuition and books," said
Dutcher. "Of course there are
schools around the country that
will give them additional help in the
way of cars, spending money or
free flights home for vacations, but
the Big Ten conference is pure.
''We tell them they're getting a
chance to play at a major college
with one of the best academic repu-
tations in the world. If after we
offer them a full-ride scholarship
and they still ask 'What else?' we
say 'sorry, that's it'."
