One for two: Rellfordjons cagers
as Ford optsfor MSU

The heated recruiting battle between Michigan and
Michigan State for Detroit Cass Tech's Patrick Ford
finally ended yesterday, with the Spartans emerging
victorious. But shed no tears for the Wolverines and
head coach Bill Frieder, as they nabbed the top
basketball recruit in the state of Florida in the person
of Richard Rellford. The 6-5% forward from Riviera
Beach is considered to be one of the top 10 high school
seniors in the nation.
"He's a strong rebounder," said Frieder of
Rellford. "He's tough around the boards. He's a good
scorer inside, and he's not a bad shooter."
"HE'S AN ANIMAL under the boards," said
Samuel Marshall, Rellford's coach at Suncoast High
School in Florida. "And he's coachable-he listens _
and learns."
Whereas Rellford had been leaning toward
Michigan for some time, the 6-5 Ford has been much
more indecisive. Before this weekend, Ford, con-
sidered by many the top recruit in the state, was
favoring the Wolverines, according to Cass Tech
assistant coach Ron Lauter. But over the weekend, he
visited Michigan State, and when he returned home
he had been swayed to the Spartans' side.
Rellford is currently averaging 25 points and 16
rebounds per game. Suncoast owns a deceptive 13-9
record because Rellford and many of his teammates

joined the team late due to the length of the football
season. The team has recently begun to jell, winning
five consecutive contests. Before exchanging a foot-
ball for a basketball, the 225-pounder earned first
team All-State status from his tight end position.
WHEN THE newest Michigan recruit and his high

school teammates switched sports, the squad still
continued to struggle for awhile.
"When Richard came in from football, his muscles
had to change over," said Marshall. "Our basketball
players play football and we lost three or four more
games while they were toning their. muscles for
In spite of Rellford's lofty averages on the basket-
ball court, Frieder noted that, "there's a big adjust-
ment when you go from high school to college."
ONE OF THOSE adjustments will have to occur
when the opposition has the ball. "He'll need a little

work defensively, especially when he faces differen
offensive sets in college," said Marshall.
"I think every player needs work on his defense
coming out of high school," said Frieder. "In high
school, if you're the best player on the block, you
don't have to play defense. But in the Big Ten your
have to."
One of the main reasons that Rellford will be taking
his skills to the Big Ten, is that Michigan has two
athletes who greatly influenced the prep star. One is
Wolverine football sensation Anthony Carter, who
also attended Suncoast High School and is a good.
friend of Rellford's. The other is freshman basketball
player Eric Turner.
"RELLFORD PLAYED basketball with Eric this
summer in the AAU Game in Jacksonville, and he
couldn't believe the passes that Eric made," said
Frieder. "So he knew he'd be coming to a team where
the guards don't just fire it up. He knows if. he gets
open, he'll get the ball."
With a verbal commitment from Rellford,
Frieder's list of recruits has now grown to four. -The
other future Wolverine cagers are 6-8 Paul Jokisch of
Birmingham Brother Rice, 6-9 Robert Henderson of
Lansing Eastern and 6-91/2 Roy Tarpley of Detro'
Cooley. With all of this height, the beatings thaw
Michigan has taken on the boards this year may soon
come to an end. "We just need more height and now
we have it," said Frieder.

An already fine recruiting class got a little bit finer yester-
day when Richard Rellford, the Riviera Beach whiz, announ-
ced his intentions to play basketball at Michigan. And while
the Wolverines and head coach Bill Frieder lost out on
Patrick Ford, the 6-5 swingman from Detroit who opted for
Michigan State, this class may still prove to be the best crop
of Wolverine recruits in recent history.
Not since the 1976 group that included Phil Hubbard,

was-Anthony Carter," said the second-year coach.
CARTER, MICHIGAN'S All-American wide receiver, is
from the same high school as Rellford-Riviera Beach's
Suncoast High-and is also a good friend of the 6-5% forward.
Another key to the recruiting success is the personality and
selflessness of Michigan's freshman guard, Eric Turner.
Turner played with Rellford in an AAU summer tournamen4
in Jacksonville, Fla. and Rellford came away impressed.
"Rellford could not believe how Eric passed the ball," said
