The Michigan Daily
Prep star gives verbal
commitment to Frieder
BY STEVE BLONDER
Bill Frieder continued stockpiling the top basketball talent in Michigan
when Michael Talley made a verbal commitment last night to play for the
Wolverines next fall.
"I've decided to go to U-M. I think they have the program best suited for
my style of play," said Talley who plays for Detroit's Cooley High
School. "Michigan is a great group of winners, and I like to win."
"Any time you get a commitment, you're happy," Frieder said.
Frieder declined to comment about Talley and how he fits into the
Michigan program, as National Collegiate Athletic Association rules pro-
hibit coaches from talking about individual recruits.
Talley chose Michigan over intra-state rival Michigan State and DePaul
after watching the Spartans practice yesterday.
The Wolverine coaching staff played a major role in Talley's decision.
"I really respect the guys and the coaches a lot. Bill Frieder is a very
good coach on and off the court," Talley said.
Talley has led Cooley to two consecutive Class A basketball titles,
averaging almost 19 points and 6 assists per game as a junior last year.
r Talley will be joined by shooting guard Tony Tolbert, who committed
to Michigan earlier this week. Both will sign letters of intent during the
early signing period of Nov. 9-16.

When Indiana outside linebacker.
coach, Andy Kincannon, is seen in
the state of Michigan, Wolverine
fans should be wary.
Kincannon, in addition to his
coaching duties, is in charge of
recruiting for most of Michigan. If
seen in the state, he's probably
trying to lure the state's best
football prospects south of the
border, away from Michigan
When the Indiana defense takes
the field for the first time Saturday,
four of Kincannon's recruits will be
doing their darndest to help defeat
their own state university.
TERRY SAUNDERS is a
six-foot-five senior from Mount
Clemens, who has switched this year
from tight end to starting outside
Senior defensive tackle, Walt
Harris, who played for Redford High
in Detroit, was not heavily recruited
by Michigan out of high school.
"I'll get on his ear on that during
practice this week," said defensive
line coach, Jim Muehling.
Mike Dumas and Brad Money, on
the other hand, were both offered
scholarships by Michigan, but chose
D U M A S, a sophomore
defensive back out of Alto, was
named the Western Michigan player
of the year in 1986 and was recruited
by Michigan, Michigan State, Notre
Dame, and the Naval Academy
Dumas' visit to Indiana was not a
pleasant one. His bags were lost in
transit leaving him with no change
of clothes. "It was a rough
weekend," Dumas recalls.
Two weeks later, he called to say
he was committing.
Senior linebacker Brad Money, a
Midland native, was recruited heavily
by MAC schools like Central
Michigan, in addition to Michigan.
Money was recruited by Indiana
during their 0-11 season, but came
anyway. "I wanted to be a part of the
rebuilding," Money remembers.
And rebuild they did. Today,
Money is a senior on an undefeated
Hoosier team looking to defeat
Michigan for the second straight
year. A win would give Indiana the
inside track for a Rose Bowl berth.
If the Hoosiers do knock off
Michigan, the native sons will
probably play a major role.
SAUNDERS combines size and
speed at his linebacker spot which
could pose a problem for a Michigan
line that had trouble protecting
quarterback Michael Taylor last
Harris didn't play at all his first
two years because of injuries but is
now a third-year starter.
"Walter's extremely strong,"
Muehling said. Harris is one of the
charter members of the Buff Club, a
group of Hoosiers who start lifting
at 6:00 AM, three days a week, for
an extra long workout.
Behind Harris is Money, who
according to Kincannon is, "by far,
having his best year now." .
MONEY acknowledges his play
has improved: "I feel a lot more
confident. Things are fitting in better
together on defense."
The two time Academic All-Big
Ten is third in the conference in
interceptions with three, and is third
on the team in tackles.
"He's a very intelligent fellow,"
Kincannon said. "He played as a
freshman at linebacker, which is a
really hard position to do that at."
The last line of defense is the
secondary, and Dumas as a
sophomore, is a key part of that
unit. "He's the most gifted of the
kids in the secondary, in terms of
speed and instincts," Muehling said.
DUMAS has shown his speed
especially on special teams, where
he has two blocked punts.
While the players will be in the
spotlight Saturday at Michigan
Stadium, it is Kincannon who got
them to Indiana in the first place.
"Our success in Michigan is due
solely to Andy," said Muehling, the
recruiting coordinator. Kincannon, a
Detroit native, covers all of
Michigan except for the,
southernmost strip from Benton
Harbor to Dearborn.
Kincannon stresses that the
institution and the program have
made his job easier. "They're always
very impressed," Kincannon said. "If
they choose Michigan or MSU, it's
because they wanted to play there all
Kincannon relishes the challenge:
"It's tough to compete against the
other schools, but it's gratifying to
pull one (prospect) away."
For the ones who were pulled
away, this game is a special one. "I
always view going home
differently," Dumas said. "I want to
be able to prove that Indiana was the
"I've always dreamed of playing
in the 'big house,' " Money said.
Is this the biggest game of his
college career, Money was asked?
"To this date, yeah, by far," he
answered. "Especially with what
we're playing for."
Indiana defensive tackle Walt Harris (95) is one of four
Hoosiers returning to their home state of Michigan Saturday.
