'M' recruiting: nothing yetu.

By BILL STIEG
One by one, they are slip-
ping away. First Stuart House
. . . then Ricky Brown .
then Dave Colscott.
These three players and sev-
en other top-notch high-school-
ers were on Michigan's re-
cruiting list. Now all but one
is signed - to other schools,
that is. And Michigan is empty-
handed.
"We went after some
great players," explained as-
sistant coach Bill Frieder,
"and we lost out on a few."
-Nine, to be exact. Only one
player, Brian Walker, is left
from that original list, and he
will probably go to North Caro-
lina State. Here's the rundown
on what happened to the oth-
ers:
* Stuart House went - to
Washington State, where he can
play forward for a black coach
- two conditions he prefers.
* Ricky Brown signed with
Mississippi State, ostensibly to
be closer to his Atlanta home.
Blue, lrish

* Steve Krafcisin will go to
North Carolina.
* Ed Scheuermann was
abandoned early by Michigan,
and went to Pitt.
* Glen Grunwald signed on
with Indiana.
* Darrell Griffith will stay
close to home at Louisville.
* Jim Ellinghausen saw a
chance to play at Ohio State
and went there instead of
Michigan.
. Rich Branning thought he
could start for Notre Dame,
so he signed with Digger
Phelps.
* Dave Colscott will join
Krafcisin at North Carolina.
That leaves Walker, whose
father would like him to join
his brother at N.C. State and
will most likely end up there.
But the alarm hasn't sound-.
ed in the basketball offices.
Michigan lost only one start-
er from its NCAA second-
place squad, so replacements
aren't immediately neces-
sary. This year's recruiting
Clash

results are evidence of how
talented Michigan is.
"These are the best players
in the country that we went
after," says Frieder. "Most of
them were looking for a place
where they could play as a
freshman --- that's the biggest
reason we encountered for their
going somewhere else.
"Last year, for instance, we
had C. J. (Kupec) and Joe
(Johnson) leaving, and every-
one could see themselves in
those spots.'
So now the recruiting effort
has focused on Walker; Mike
Prince, a 6-6 guard from De-
troit Catholic Central; and
Mike Davis, a 6-11 center from
Mercer Junior College. Prince
led his team to the state cham-
pionship this year and Davis is
good enough to be chased by
Maryland and Southern Cal.
Frieder isn't terribly sur-
prised or disappointed at this
year's recruiting, but he did
say that "we were really
sorry about losing Braanlng
and Colscott . . . we were
really in on him." And Mis-
sissippi St. "came out of no-
where" to land Brown,
"But we are only taking a
couple of recruits, anyway,"
says Frieder. "We won't waste
tenders just for the sake of us-
ing them."
The other news out of the
Athletic Dep't. this week was
the release of next year's
schedule. The most salient fea-

tures of the new schedule are
Thursday Big Ten games, and
a crush of games between Jan.
15 and Jan. 29 that has Michi-
gan playing seven times in 15
days.
But the non-conference sched-
ule is nothing like last year's
killer slate. The biggest threats

Variety will spice Michigan's
doubleheader at Notre Dame to-
day as several Wolverine pitch-
ers will work at least a few
innings each.
Coach Moby Benedict plans
to use most of his hurlers in an
effort to keep everyone in shape
after a four - day rest. The
Wolverines have played only
once in the last 11 days - a
9-1 victory over Purdue last
Saturday.
The second game of that
doubleheader was rained out,
as was a Sunday twinbill with
Illinois. The Wolverines are
12-11 overall and 4-1 in the
Big Ten, good enough for first
place percentage-wise, ahead
of Iowa (8-4) and Ohio State
(4-2).
Aces Lary Sorensen (6-0, 2.51
ERA) and Mark Weber (2.3,
2.44 ERA) will lead the pa-
rade of pitchers. Michigan's
top hitters are Dave Chapman
(.338), Dick Walter house (329)
and Ted Mahan (.324). Chap-
man and Mahan have 12 RBI
each, behind Bob Wasilewaki's
is.
Notre Dame, hardly a base-
ball powerhouse, is 13-23 this
year. The Irish have won two
straight, however, and four

of their last six. They were
also able to play last week-
end.
Leading the Irish are Frank
Fiascki, a .368 hitter, and Bob
Stratta, who is hitting .351 with
31 RBI, five doubles and four
home runs. Dave Lazzeri is
their other threat, hitting .313
with four doubles and four
triples.
Expected to play for Michi-
gan is Rick Leach, the quarter-
back for the football team who
spent most of the spring calling
signals for Bob Schembechler.
Leach, a first baseman - out-
fielder, got back to the baseball
team just in time for last week-
end's rainouts, but hit well in
early March during the team's
Florida trip.
