school coach made some accusations
and then claimed the NCAA was in-
vestigating Michigan about them.
However, it turns out the investigation
was routine and all the accusations
"The NCAA came in and there was an
official investigation," explained Boyd.
"But it was the same investigation that
they have every year on the top thirty
kids in the country. They always come
in and ask questions.
"When the so-called allegations that
were made by the coach were checked
out," Boyd went on, "they found out
that he was wheeling and dealing and
looking for a deal. The sad thing about
it is that he said things about Gary an-
d his family that just weren't true."
TRUTH IS one of the main elements
of the Michigan program, and is
something that Boyd and Frieder stress
when dealing with a recruit.
"We never tell a young man when he
comes in here that he is going to start
for our program," said Boyd. "If he
comes in here and beats somebody out,
of course he's going to start. But we're
not going to promise him that."
Generally, the Wolverines will start
to make contact with a potential recruit
as early as his sophomore year in high
school by sending him letters or in-
viting him to Ann Arbor for a basketball
game. Things start to get a little more
intense when the player is a junior.
"JUNIOR year you've got to upbeat it
because now you get to the point where
different things are influencing the
kids," said Boyd. "They look at this
school because of this, at that school
because of that, so you've got to work a
By the time the player reaches his
senior year, during which he makes his
official visits to up to five schools,
recruiting can turn into a full-scale
war. Someone who knows about the
battles is Stoyko, who was highly
sought after as a senior last year at Bay
High School in Bay Village, 0.
"It was really hectic come my senior
year," remembered Stoyko. "I had
narrowed 226 colleges down to five.
During the fall I could not come home
and sit down for five minutes without
the phone ringing and without looking
at more stuff teams sent me.
Sometimes I came down and said
'Mom, if the phone rings and it's for
me, I'm not home.'"
Once a player decides to
visit Michigan, the coaches
have 48 hours to show him
what the program and the
University are all about. But,
usually, that's not too difficult.
"WE REALLY don't have to
sell Michigan to them," said ='
Boyd, "because Michigan
sells itself. What we have to
sell is the basketball program.
This University has too much
pride and tradition and class
that it doesn't have to have
somebody going door to door
to sell it. Once we get a kid to
visit, we don't really have to
worry about it."
"If you get a kid to visit, he's
nuts if he doesn't consider
Michigan," claimed Frieder.
"The kids in our program are
super, our athletic program
and tradition is tremendous,
and our facilities are second to
One final element involved
in the visit, and the recruiting
process, are the Michigan
"The players play a big
role," noted Boyd, "because
when we bring the kids in for
visits, if (the players) find Assis
something wrong with the kid ther
or don't like the kid, they'll tell
us and nine times out of ten we're not
going to recruit the kid. When that kid
comes into our program, he's got to
play with them-these are his team-
mates. These kids have to be able to get
along with the recruit, and the recruit
has to be able to get along with these
During the visit, the recruit gets a
taste of what University life is like by
staying with different players.
