Michigan basketball coach Steve Fisher may
finally have reason to believe that you can't win
them all. Yesterday, three recruits that Michigan
sought, chose to attend college elsewhere.
Detroit Pershing's Lorenzo Orr, a 6'7"
forward, selected USC over Michigan and
Michigan State. Bill Curley, a 6'10" forward
from Duxbury (MA) High School, chose Boston
College over Michigan, Villanova, Connecticut
and Notre Dame. And Willie Fisher, a 6'7"
forward, opted for Jacksonville over Michigan,
Connecticut, and Tennessee.
As expected, however, 6'9" Rich McIver of
Brazosport High School in Texas, 6'4" Jason
Bossard of Charlotte, MI, and last year's signee
from Kalamazoo, Sam Mitchell, signed national
letters of intent with Michigan.
Yesterday was the first day of the early
signing period which concludes November 15.
"(Bossard) can do a lot of things, but what he
does best is shoot the basketball, especially the
long range three-point shot," Fisher said. "He's
an exceptional shooter, a hard-nosed, gritty
competitor, an excellent student - we're glad
he's coming to Michigan."
Fisher also was pleased with McIver's
commitment: "He's 6'9", very, very athletic, and
was pretty much an unknown commodity until
last summer when he burst onto the scene with
his play in the summer AAU," he added. "He's a
loses out on recruits
young man who's eager to learn and will
continue to get better. He's a shot blocker, an
inside player, and will be a great addition."
The 6'9" Mitchell, who averaged 24 points,
14 rebounds, and 4 blocks a game for
Kalamazoo's Loy Norrix High School, re-signed
with the Wolverines. Mitchell is spending the
year at a prep school in New Hampshire.
"Tennessee and Iowa called and asked if I had
any idea of changing schools. I told them no,
that I was waiting for my moment to be coached
under Steve Fisher's staff.
"I like Michigan a lot. I liked them since I
was a younger kid, back in the junior high days."
Orr may have liked Michigan and Michigan
State, where former Pershing star Steve Smith
plays, but he - and his mother, who played a
large part in his decision - liked USC more.
"Basically he felt that's where he wanted to
go," said Pershing coach Johny Goston. "He
wanted to leave the city. I think he felt that he
wanted to be a part of a new regime. It's a
challenge for him. (Deciding on a college) was
one of the most emotional, traumatic times for
While the opportunity to start anew elsewhere
proved enticing for Orr, the stability of home-
state schools was the deciding factor for Curley
(who lives 40 miles from Boston), and Fisher.
"It was the toughest thing I ever had to do,"
said the 6'10" Curley, a fourth-team Street and
Smith All-American. "I wish I could go to all
"Since I plan on living in Boston after
college, going to Boston College will open more
opportunities for me."
Curley spoke to Coach Fisher on Tuesday
night to tell him of his decision. "He was real
nice to me, so he made it easy on me and that
wasn't too bad. I don't think (he was too upset.)
He's such a nice guy. He understands what's best
Jacksonville appealed to Willie Fisher for
three reasons. It was close to home, his best
friend Alonzo Harris plays there, and the level of
competition in the Sun Belt Conference should
provide him with the opportunity to play right
According to a source at the Orlando
Sentinel, Fisher may not be sorely missed by
"He only scored 15 points a game, 9
rebounds," the source said. "He would never be a
starter. He's real slight - he doesn't have the
build to play inside. I think he wants to stay in-
state, I think he likes the fact he can play right
Joe Reid, a 6'9" center from University High
School in Ohio, is expected to sign next week.
He is considering Michigan and Ohio State
primarily, according to his coach Jeff Morton.
"We're going to sign one more, possibly two
more players, before the end of the early signing
period," Fisher said.
Michigan icer Doug Evans feels more at home at Yost than California.

Daily Hockey Writer
The climate on the West Coast has a tendency to make sport fans focus
on outdoor games, like football and baseball. This was unfortunate for Doug
Evans, a sophomore defenseman on the Michigan hockey team.
Unfortunate because Evans was born and raised in San Jose, California.
"There's no real organization for hockey out there - it's just football,
baseball, and soccer," Evans said. "The weather just isn't conducive to
So how exactly did Evans emerge as a hockey player while others played
under the sun?
"When I was nine, my sister was learning how to figure skate and I tried
skating, too, and I liked it," Evans said. "I was a quick learner and I started
to develop as a hockey player."
When Evans started high school, his talent started to emerge and his
coach suggested that he challenge himself and move to a more hockey-
oriented part of the country. See EVANS, page 12
Cornell University Graduate School
of Medical Sciences
r1 . .eM
The joint program of graduate studies leading to the Ph.D. degree in molecular biology of the Memorial
Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and the Cornell University Graduate School of Medical Sciences offers a
unique and challenging opportunity for students whose goal is to be in the forefront of modern molecular
biology. The faculty offers graduate research training in a variety of systems, including bacteria, yeast,
drosophila, mammalian cells, and the mouse, on DNA replication and recombination, regulation of RNA
synthesis and processing, receptors and their role in cell function and differentiation, and retroviruses,
oncogenes, and development. In addition to developing their own research project, students are provided
with formal training through a core curriculum, advanced courses and journal clubs. The adjacent campuses
of the Sloan Kettering Institute, Cornell University Medical College, and the Rockefeller University form an
outstanding scientific, medical, educational and social community. A wide variety of seminars and symposia
are scheduled at all three institutions throughout the year that bring many eminent scientists from all over
the world into the lecture hall. Such distinguished series as the Harvey Lectures and the Enzyme Club are
a regular part of our scientific community.
