Bo: Fullbacks key recruiting class

The Michigan Daily-Saturday, Septet
N g
Nigh ootball grows tn popu

Running backs Butch Woolfolk and Stan Edwards
may have departed from the Michigan football scene,
but the Wolverine tradition of quality backs looks like
it will continue thanks to the class of '86.
"The strength of our recruiting is our three big
fullbacks," said Michigan head coach Bo Schem-
THE THREE FRESHMAN fullbacks are Dan Rice
(6-2, 215), Bob Perryman (6-2, 215) and Eddie
Garrett. Rice, who was selected to several All-
American teams, runs the 40-yard dash in 4.55 secon-
ds and gained over 2,000 yards and 18 touchdowns
during the last two seasons. Perryman rushed for
2,043 yards and 26 touchdowns last year.
If the fullbacks are the strength of the recruiting
class, the tailbacks can't be far behind. In Ben Logue
(6-0, 205) and Thomas Wilcher (6-0, 185) the
Wolverines tabbed a pair of tailbacks with some big
numbers to their names. Logue, an All-American and
Georgia Player of the Year, gained an astounding
2,776 yards and 23 touchdowns last year. Wilcher
rambled for 1,254 yards on only 65 carries (19.3
average). As a junior he rushed for 965 yards on 45 at-
tempts (21.4 average). Wilcher also is the national
high school record holder in the 110-meter hurdles
with a time of 13.6.
"Wilcher is one of the fastest sprinters around,"
saif offensive backfield coach Tirrel Burton. "Now he
has to do that on the football field. We can't compare
him to the (Rob) Lytles and Woolfolk's yet. But his

speed is certainly an attribute that we love."
THE POSITION that recruits are most likely to
contribute at this year, besides fullback, according to
Schembechler is wide receiver. In addition to talent,
these receivers have some interesting names: Trian-
do Markray (6-2,185), Gilvanni Johnson (6-2,180) and
Ivan Hicks (6-2, 180).
What they did in high school:
Z Ben Logue - 2,776 yards rushing and 23 touch-
downs as a senior.
d Thomas Wicher - 1,254 yards rushing on 65
carries (19.3 average) as a senior.
" Dan Rice-Over 2,000 yards rushing and 18
touchdowns in last two seasons.
+ Bob Perryman - 2,043 yards rushing and 26
touchdowns last year.
Markray averaged 36.3 yards a reception on his 19
catches. A product of the state of Michigan, Markray
played Class D ball. Johnson earned Michigan
All-State honors. He pulled in 51 passes for 952 yards
(18.6 average). Hicks, an All-American from New
Jersey, played both quarterback and defensive back
in high school. He is listed as a defensive back/wide
receiver for the Wolverines.
Other recurits who will line up at defensive back
include Tony Gant (6-2, 175), Dieter Heren (6-3, 190),
Steve Johnson (5-10, 180), Greg Randall (6-0, 175) and
Derek Woodmore (6-1, 190).

GANT WAS CONSIDERED to be one of the nation's
top high school defensive backs. He received Ohio' s
Governor Trophy, symbolic of the state's Player of
the Year. Heren was an All-Indiana selection last fall
at tight end, linebacker, and defensive back, but will
play the latter position at Michigan. Johnson and
Woodmore both lined up at running back in addition
to defensive back in high school. .
The Michigan kicking game will get a boost from
this year's recruiting class in the person of
placekicker Pat Moons. Moons was rated the nation's
best prep kicker by Blue Chip Magazine. The Coral
Springs, Fla. native booted 46 of 48 extra points and
nine field goals last season.
Another Wolverine freshman who hails from a
warm weather area is quarterback Jim Harbaugh of
Palo Alto, Calif. Harbaugh threw for 2,903 yards and
34 touchdowns during his final two prep campaigns.
He completed 59 percent of his passes last year. Jim
is the son of former Michigan defensive coordinator
and new Western Michigan head coach, Jack Har-
Other recruits with relatives from the Wolverine
grid program include offensive lineman Mark Ham-
merstein (brother on Wolverine defensive tackle
Mike), linebacker Andy Moeller (son of Michigan
defensive coordinator Gary), tight end Paul Sch-
merge (younger brother of former Michigan tight
end Mark) and defensive back/wide receiver Hicks
(younger brother of former Wolverine standout

This year's battle cry for college
football may well be "lights, camera,
Television has seen to it that cameras
often are on the sidelines and in the air
in a blimp. Followers of college football
will attest that there is always plenty of
action. And now that night games are

taking place with added frequency,
"lights" have been added to the college
football battle cry.
NORTHWESTERN and Illinois get
the Big Ten season underway on Sep-
tember 4 at 6:00 p.m. Minnesota will
play five of its six home games at night
this year in the new Hubert H. Hum-
phrey Metrodome. Turner Broad-

casting will air 19 night games this
season on cable TV during prime time.
Although Michigan plays Minnesota
at home this season, and is unlikely to
have any of its games shifted to night-
time for a cable broadcast, it will get a
chance to compete under the lights
when it travels to South Bend, Ind. to
face Notre Dame on September 18.
The Wolverine-Fighting Irish clash
was originally scheduled as an after-
noon game but had its starting time
moved to 9:00 p.m. at the request of
ABC-TV, which will televise the con-
"MICHIGAN and Notre Dame aren't
desperate for TV appearances, so we
just did it to help ABC," said Notre
Dame spokesman John Heisler. "They
made a good presentation and we've
had a good working arrangement with
them, so why not help them?
"We also went along with their
request, because we couldn't find any
reason not to, he continued. "We
couldn't find any great objections to it."
Michigan head coach Bo Schem-
bechler sees one problem that will be
caused by the night game, although it
obviously isn't severe enough for him to
nix the idea of a late start.
