While cross-state rival Michigan State is
reaping the bulk of the state's high school foot-
ball talent, Michigan head coach Bo Schem-
bechler and his staff will be collecting the
majority of their signatures from out-of-state, as
high school seniors begin signing national let-
ters-of intent today.
Rookie Spartan head coach George Perles has
apparently done well in his first few weeks on the
job as Michigan State is expected to sign seven of
the top 15 players in the state. Michigan has got-
ten a verbal commitment from just one member
of the All-State team - 6-3, 220-pound fullback-
linebacker Carlitos Bostic of Ypsilanti. Schem-
bechler has been concentrating his efforts
elsewhere and is expected to sign some of the top
prospects from the states of Florida and Illinois.
} GERALD WHITE, a 6-2, 205-pound running
back from Titusville High School in Florida and
considered by some to be one of the top three
runners in the country, will sign with Michigan
today. White rushed for 1,737 yards while
averaging seven yards per carry and leading his
team to a 12-2 record and the state Class AAA
out of state to n&
championship. Pittsburgh, Notre Dame, UCLA
and North Carolina provided the chief com-
petition for White's services, who is part of the
cream of a fine crop of high school seniors in
Florida this year.

Herschel Walker or a
Marcus Dupree in this
"The consensus seems to be that there's not a
Herschel Walker or a Marcus Dupree in this
year's class," says the NCAA's Mike Gilleran.
"But there are a lot of top players, particularly
in the South and especially in Florida."
Wide receiver Gene Lawson of Ft. Lauderdale,
a 5-11, 170-pound speedster, and Billy Dawson, a
6-1, 165-pound all-around athlete from Evanston
Township High in Illinois will provide Schem-
bechler with two outstanding receiver prospects.
GLENN MOGLE, a massive 6-8, 275-pound
lineman from Sarasota, Fla. rounds out
Michigan's so-called "Florida Connection."
Dawson, described by Evanston Township
High head coach Tom Powers as "the best all-
around athlete I've ever seen in my 25 years of
coaching," heads a bumper crop of future
Wolverines from the state of Illinois.
Russ Rein, a 6-0, 180-pound quarterback from
Chicago Marist is also expected to sign with
Michigan today. Rein completed 112 of 185
passes last season for 2,145 yards and 20 touch-
downs and is said to have a super arm and good
leadership qualities. He has excellent speed (4.7
in the 40) and is widely regarded as the finest
passer in the state. His career stats include 4,100
yards passing and 38 touchdowns.

MIKE O'CONNOR, a 6-2, 195-pound end from
Kankakee; Andre McIntyre, a 6-2, 250-pound

Lane Tech, and Doug Mallory, a 6-2, 220-pound
linebacker from DeKalb and the brother of
Wolverine sophomore linebacker Mike Mallory,
are the rest of Michigan's Illinois recruits.
Other high school seniors who will sign with
Michigan today include: Andy Borowski, a 6-4,
245-pound lineman from Cincinnati; Garland
Rivers, a 6-2, 185-pound defensive back from
Canton, Ohio; Bill Harris, a 6-2, 250-pound mid-

Wis; and Dave Bergeron, a 6-5, 260-pound
lineman from Grosse Point North.
Six-foot-5, 230-pound defensive lineman,
Terrance Mann of Detroit Cooley, the top
prospect in the state, announced earlier that he
would attend Southern Methodist University.

Chiamp is a winner in 'M' nets
By MIKE MCGRAW
"When I'm in a game, it feels good to get a hard shot at me
right away1 that gets me going," says Michigan goalie Mark
Two weeks ago at jam-packed Yost Ice Arena, however,
one of the first shots taken by Michigan State, a burner from
the right point by Dan McFall, just eluded Chiamp and
boosted the Spartans into the lead with just three minutes of
the opening period gone.
BUT AS anyone who witnessed the contest would know,
Chiamp went on to play a phenomenal game in the net,
making 33 saves and allowing nationally-ranked MSU only
one more tally the rest of the night as the Wolverines lost a 2-1
"We had a lot of scoring opportunities, and we needed them
against Chiamp," said State coach Ron Mason after the
"That was an exciting game to play in, but it doesn't mean
as much since we lost," said Chiamp. "No one on our team
likes State and I'm sure they hate us also."
BUT DESPITE earning number-one-star honors in that
game, Chiamp still has to improve, according to Michigan
hockey coach John Giordano. "He's not playing very well
right now," Giordano said. "He needs to work on his
placement on the ice while taking on shots. He'll be a good
goalie, he just hasn't broken through on his concentration
Even though Chiamp may have his weaknesses, he has to
be pleased with the opportunity he is getting to correct them.
This season he has been splitting nearly every series with the
Wolverines' other goalie, sophomore Jon Elliott.
"Jon and I differ quite a bit in style. He's bigger so he
doesn't have to move around as much," commented the 5-7
Chiamp. "I have to rely more on quickness so I tend to be
LAST SEASON while playing behind Elliott and senior
Peter Mason, Chiamp only appeared in three non-conference'
"It was weird last year, sitting out just about the whole
season, because everywhere I had played befo're college, I
was starting," said the East Detroit native. "But I didn't lose
confidence and I'm happy to be getting a chance to play this
year. I'll never regret my decision to come here.
"Michigan was always my first college choice, but I had
trouble with my grades. So I did what they do in Canada -
took the 'thirteenth grade,' " said Chiamp. "I wasn't sure at
first if I would be recruited here, though, because they had
Paul Fricker. But then I heard he was turning pro and that
left the job open."
SO CHIAMP got his chance and in the 17 games he's ap-
peared in this year, he's accumulated a 3.98 goals against
average and a 6-7 record, while playing behind a young and
This is the form that earned Chiamp a spot in the National
Sports Festival the past two seasons where he and teammate
Ted Speers earned gold and bronze medals in the summer,
"The Sports Festival was a lot of fun and it got me geared
up for training camp the past two seasons," said Chiamp,
who is very enthusilstic about the future of his team.
"I'm looking forward to next year, the defense will have
gotten much better," he said."Plus I know that we're not
recruiting another goalie."
"But we're definitely not blowing off the rest of this year, I
know we're going to make the playoffs," he said, "and in a
two-game series, anything can happen."

"Stars sign Bryant
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Running
back Kelvin Bryant and offensive
tackle Irv Eatman, two of last season's
top college players, signed lucrative
multi-year contracts with
the. Philadelphia Stars of the United
States Football League yesterday.
The Stars also announced the signing
of Scott Fitzkee, a wide receiver who
played out his option with the National
Football League's San Diego Chargers,
and Roger Jackson, a safety on Penn
State's 1982 national collegiate cham-
BRYANT'S agent, Perry Deering,
said the player signed for four years for
about $2 million, making him the
highest paid player in the fledgling
Bryant said he didn't think he was
taking a gamble by choosing the USFL
over the NFL because his long-term
contract was guaranteed. He added
that he might have waited to make a
choice between the leagues if the NFL
draft had been earlier.
"But I came here to visit, was
pleased with the organization and liked
the idea of playing in the spring," he
BRYANT, A 6-foot-2, 195 pounder,
was only the third player in Atlantic
Conference history to gain 1,000 yards
or more in three consecutive seasons.
Eatman, from UCLA, who is believed
to have been given a four-year deal for
close to $1 million, said he felt the USFL
would be a competitive league.
Fitzkee, who played two years for
the. Philadelphia Eagles before being
dealt to San Diego, caught only three
passes last season and jumped the NFL
because of a lack of playing time. He
reportedly received a guaranteed
Fitzkee admitted he was "two or
three percent skeptical, but if you give
this thing (USFL) a couple of years, I
think it will go."
Meanwhile, the Stars apparently
have given up on trying to sign Penn
State running back Curt Warner. War-
ner's demands are too high for the
Stars, and he wants to play in the NFL.
