Campy's decision ...
...-the right choice
"I'VE THOUGHT about signing with the pros before I graduate. I
haven't thought about it too much because you know I might
be good enough then, but then again I might not. But if they
approached me with an offer, I think I would take it."
-Campy Russell, senior, Pontiac Central H.S., May 27, 1971
Michigan's star basketball player Campy Russell was drafted
by the NBA Cleveland Cavaliers Tuesday, prematurely ending his
varsity career with the Wolverines. Many people have voiced
disapproval of Campy's actions, mostly because of their interest as
fans and a deep-rooted sense of the sanctity of the four-year rule
in college athletics.
Campy has indeed been a great player during his stay in Ann
Arbor after a brilliant high school career with, hopefully, a lucra-
tive and successful professional one ahead of him. Campy has been
destined for stardom ever since his abilities on the court became
evident years ago on the playgrounds of Pontiac.
Even on the day he declared his desire to come to school
here three years ago, the newsmen were pressing him on his pro-
fessional aspirations. Therefore no one should be surprised at the
course of action Campy took, or be righteously indignant because
Michigan won't have a great team next year. He made the only
decision he could have made under the circumstances.
In watching Campy play this past season, I became convinced
that he was just too good for the basketball played at the col-
lege level. Russell was always there with the nonchalant big bas-
ket during the close games of the early Big Ten season, and at
times, seemed to be toying with the opposition.
Campy has nothing left to prove in the college game. Individ-
ually, he led the Big Ten in scoring, finished second in rebound-
ing and Michigan captured the Big Ten title and an opportunity -
for him to shine in the biggest showcase of them all, the NCAA
Few Michigan sports fans will ever forget the show Campy
put on for the folks in Tuscaloosa last March in Michigan's upset
of Notre Dame. Campy scored 36 points, including 24 in the sec-
ond half, and grabbed 18 rebounds, completely captivating the
Alabama crowd with his display of talent.
One can be reasonably sure in saying that Campy Russell
came to the University of Michigan and played basketball for
three years in order to realize his goal of a sassy pro contract.
He worked hard to this end and deserves the fame and fortune
shortly to come his way. His "vocational" training was considered
sufficiently complete to warrant a first round draft pick.
After all, don't many (if not most) people in this University
come here to obtain some vocational training whether it be in
medicine, law, architecture, music, or basketball?
Turning the shoe on the foot of another student, if a medical
school deemed someone qualified after just three years of college
should he turn it down?
Campy is unusually gifted with a basketball. In fact, only
twelve other players in the college ranks were "hardship" picks
of the professional league, and Campy was the first one to be
Certainly college has more to offer than another year of
basketball for Campy, but the years of earning for professional
Campy can graduate any time but he can only play ball now.
