Although Bo Schembechler says he
does not grade his freshmen recruiting
classes until their junior season, the
rookies of 1983 may find that exams are
ready to begin.
Special teams is normally where
freshmen get their first breaks, and this
year should be no exception: Schem-
bechler, however, has already said that
one rookie may see action at running
back, and a few others may bolster the
offensive line, the receiving corps and
defensive secondary.
GERALD WHITE, first team Parade
All-America, has put himself in the
race to replace the Big Ten's second-
leading rusher in 1983, Lawrence Ricks.
White, who a number of scouts compare
to Michigan's all-time leading rusher,
Butch Woolfolk, is 6-2, 205 pounds and
ready to contribute.
"Gerald White could have some im-
pact at the tailback position," Bo said
at the Big Ten Luncheon in July.
But if White is not ready to improve
the running game immediately, a num-
ber of freshmen linemen may be ready
to bolster the offense. Not since the
recruiting class of 1977, when Bo signed
Ed Muransky, Bubba Paris and Rich
Strenger, have Michigan recruits been
so big.
EIGHT OF Schembechler's 29 ten-
dered freshmen are taller than 6-4 and
seven way more than 245 pounds.
Glenn Mogle, 6-8, 275, from Sarasota,
Fla., was rated among the country's top
lineman by the Sporting News last
season and may be ready to fill in
should the regulars falter or get in-
jured. At 6-6, 275, John Elliott is another
giant ready to step in and plug some
holes, Dave Folkertsma (6-5, 245), An-
dy Borowski (6-4, 245),and Sean Guffey
(6-4, 250) fill out the offensive line con-
tingent.
But the biggest hole that Schem-
bechler must fill is that left by
Michigan's smallest player. Although
Schembechler expects sophomores
Steve and Gilvanni Johnson to fill An-
thony Carter's shoes opposite Vince
Bean, Schembechler recruited four
talented receivers who could possibly
step in.
THE COACHING staff has projected
Dwayne Freeman, who followed in Car-
ter's footsteps at Suncoast High in
Florida, as a defensive back. The 6-2,
175 speedster could also find himself on
the receiving end. Freeman caught 39
passes for 700 yards his senior year and
also intercepted eight passes.
Another Florida product, Gene
Lawson, and Bill Dawson, both 5-11,
170, were also highly recruited. Dawson
caught five touchdown passes, returned
two punts and one interception 'for
touchdowns, kicked four field goals,
converted 11 extra points and scored

two two-point conversions in his senior
year.
On defense, Schembechler has open
positions at linebacker and in the
secondary. Last season, freshman Tony
Gant filled in a shaky defensive back-
field and became one of Bo's most
valued recruits. This season, Freeman,
Tim Schulte, Garland Rivers and Allen
Bishop may be ready to step in. Doug
Mallory, younger brother of junior
linebacker Mike Mallory, is also'
available.
SCHULTE'S TWIN brother, Todd,
leads the linebacking group, which in-
cludes Ypsilanti's Carlitos Bostic and
John Balourdous, younger brother of
offensive lineman Art, and Detroit's
Dun Holloway will challenge for backup
positions while also attempting to work
their way onto the special teams.
Rounding out the recruits are three

Last season was the first time in the
history of college football that overall
passing yardage totalled more than
overall rushing yardage.
For the first time ever in the Big Ten,
every conference member won a road
game last season.
The AP top 20 began in 1936 and the
UPI in 1950. Last season was the first
time that a Big Ten team did not finish
in the top 10 of one of these-polls.
Fifty one rule changes, most designed
to increase player safety, have been
added to the Big Ten rule books this
season. Some changes not concerned
with safety this season include:
" This season the team that correctly
calls the coin flip will have a choice of
receiving or kicking off at the start of
the game or the second half.
" There will be a seventh official at
every Big Ten football game. He will be
a "side judge" and will be able to get
better position on pass and kick plays
and will see the tight ends much better.
* The use of a 25 second clock was ap-
proved, but later rescinded by the Big
Ten coaches.
Five conference teams in post season
play - Michigan, Ohio State, Illinois,
Wiscnsin, and Iowa - was the most
ever by the Big Ten.
........................... ............
1983 is the first year of a two year
round-robin conference schedule, the
first time the Big Ten has ever done
this.

quarterback prospects. Russ Rein, a 6-0
190-pounder from Illinois, completed
112 of 185 passes for 2,145 yards and 20
touchdowns in his senior season, and
passed for 4,100 yards and 38 touch-
downs during his high school career.
College recruiters regarded him as
the best passerin Illinois last year.
Pete Wentworth and Chris Zurbrugg,
both out-of-state recruits, are also con-
sidered strong passers with good
leadership qualities and could compete
for the vacant quarterback position in
1984 after Steve Smith and Dave Hall
graduate.
As with any of Schembechler's
recruiting classes, some of the lesser
known recruits could eventually
become Michigan starters. Schem-
bechler himself admits, however, that
most of his recruits won't play for at
least a year. And two years from now,
they'll be making the grade.
