ceeded him, said he wasn't surprised
when Wheatley informed him of his
decision yesterday morning.
"I knew in his heart he wanted to
stay," he said. "It wasn't his time. I
knew he wanted to stay."
Others were not as confident.
"I'm shocked," said ESPN draft
expert Mel Kiper, Jr. "I thought he
would be entering the draft with the
rest of the juniors like (San Diego

State running back) Marshall Faulk
and (Tennessee quarterback) Heath
Shuler."
Kiper added that, should Wheatley
continue to play at the record-break-
ing standards that he has performed
at, he would probably be the first
player chosen in next year's draft.
Michigan's all-time touchdown leader
was being pegged as the second-best
running back in this year's draft, fol-
lowing Faulk.
However, in postponing his entry
into the NFL, Wheatley acknowl-
edged that he would run the risk of

suffering a career-ending injury.
"But in order to play a sport like
this, you can't think about that. If I
was worried about blowing out a knee,
I wouldn't have chosen to play foot-
ball, I would have run track," said
Wheatley, also a memberof the Michi-
gan track and field team. "I would
have put my aspirations on running in
the Olympics if I thought about blow-
ing out my knee."
With Wheatley's decision to re-
turn, Michigan coach Gary Moeller
welcomes back a player who instantly
becomes a leading candidate for the

Heisman Trophy.
"I'm very happy, not just for the
touchdowns and those things,"
Moeller said. "It's just the continued
association with him. I'm happy for
the rest of the team."
Wheatley was a preseason All-
America this past season as well, but
a disappointing team record as well as
two games missed due to a shoulder
injury kept him from receiving simi-
lar postseason recognition.
He finished eighth in the balloting
for the prestigious Heisman, but did
earn his second consecutive bowl
game MVP trophy, earning Hall of
Fame Bowl MVP honors New Year's
Day in Michigan's 42-7 victory over
North Carolina State. Wheatley was
also voted the most valuable player in
the 1993 Rose Bowl after a record-
setting performance.
Wheatley's next touchdown would
break his tie with Anthony Carter for
most career touchdowns with 41. He
can also become the all-time leading
rusher at Michigan with 1,360 yards
next season. He gained 1,357 this
year despite the sidelining injury.
"Why not leave college as one of
the greatest running backs of all-time,
and then go to the NFL and be one of
the great backs of the NFL," Wheatley
posited.

sophomore Meghan O'Keefe, prais-
ing her personal Florence Nightin-
gale.
But Leah's expertise is not limited
to the hospital or University.
LSA sophomore and rugby team-
mate Rebecca Belian said, "During a
game if a referee is doing something
wrong she'll go out onto the field and
tell them what they're doing wrong.
She knows more than the refs do."
Since her award notice, Leah has
received congratulations from a col-
orful spectrum of people, including
an MTS message from University
President James Duderstadt and a
mysterious letter from an allegedly
innocuous inmate in a Florida prison.
During her five years as a Univer-
sity student, Leah has concentrated in
political science and the Center for
Afro-American Studies (CAAS). She
came to the University after studying
for a year in Norway with the dream
of one day working as a politician in
Washington. In her sophomore year
she discovered she enjoyed studying
Afro-American studies and has been
pursuing this interest ever since.

She began the Rhodes scholarshi0
application process during the sum-
mer of 1993 while studying at the
University of West Indies in Mona,
Jamaica. In the midst of the Reggae
Festival, Sunsplash, she Federal Ex-
pressed letters to her professors re-
questing recommendations on her
behalf to qualify for the Rhodes schol-
arship.
CAAS Prof. Yaw Twumasi, whle
received his Ph.D. at Oxford, said he
had his former student pegged early
on as a definite future recipient of the
award.
"I went to Oxford myself," he said.
"I have seen Rhodes scholars. I knew
this girl was going."
Another professor said she is also
confident in Leah's future success.
CAAS Prof. Gracia Clark said, "I
think she'll do well in the British
system because it stresses indepen-
dent study. She's very good at that."
Leah shows this love for indepen-
dent study in the advice she gives to
future Rhodes applicants. "I think stu-
dents should study what they like, and
be genuine about those interests," she
said. "Get to know your professors,
and be involved."

Wolpe leads in campaign funding

LANSING (AP) - Former U.S.
Rep. Howard Wolpe took an early
lead in fund-raising over his rivals
for the Democratic gubernatorial
nomination by reporting yesterday
he had $834,000 in his campaign
piggy bank.
Wolpe said he raised $410,000
last year. Of that, $212,000 came in
donations of $100 or less and was
eligible for a 2-to-I match in public
matching funds. That brought in an-
other $424,000.
"I don't believe there could be a
more powerful demonstration of the
kind of grass-roots base that has been
established for my campaign all over
Michigan," he said.
State Sen. Debbie Stabenow of

Lansing reported last month raising
$450,174 in small contributions and
matching funds.
Former Michigan State Univer-
sity trustee Larry Owen of East Lan-
sing said in December he had
$270,000 in contributions and match-
ing funds.
The fourth Democrat in the race,
Rep. Lynn Jondahl of Okemos, hasn't
reported his fund-raising progress.
Campaign manager Jim Curran said
the campaign has raised about
$125,000 and will file for matching
funds soon.
Candidates who accept matching
funds agree to spend no more than $2
million in theprimary election. Wolpe,
of Lansing, said he doesn't expect

any problem raising the balance.
A consultant for Owen said
Wolpe's lead was unimpressive.
"He raised twice as much money
as Larry, but Larry has been running
for 90 days and Howard for over a
year. That's the comparison we've
made," said Robert Kolt, of Kolt and
Serkaian Communications.
Wolpe's total also included money
left over from his congressional cam-
paign, Kolt said. Wolpe's campaign
said that amounted to $38,000.
Stabenow said she will top
$620,000 by month's end, despite
spending the lion's share of her time
working on school finance in the state
Senate and refusing to take money
from political action committees.
