indicates varsity etters won

By Nicholas J. Cotsonika
Daily Sports Editor
Jon Jansen and David Bowens, stand-
out football players at Michigan, may
provide much-needed depth for the men's
basketball team next semester. Tai
Streets, meanwhile, may not play basket-
ball after the bowl game as he did last
season.
During a media event yesterday at
Criser Arena, men's basketball coach
Brian Ellerbe said he "could not be sure"
any of them will play but that depth is his
"greatest concern" for the upcoming sea-
son, which begins next week.
"We'll have to evaluate them and see
what they can do, but if they can play,
they might be able to help us," Ellerbe
said. "Where they would probably help
us the most is practice. A couple of big
bodies like that could do a lot to get us
ready for Big Ten games.
"But we really won't know anything
for certain until football season ends."
Jansen is an offensive lineman and
team captain in football; Streets is a wide
receiver. Bowens, who sat with the
coaches at men's basketball walk-on try-
outs last Monday, played linebacker and
defensive end for two seasons before he
was dismissed from the football team this
past spring for subpar academic perfor-
mance. He is enrolled in extension cours-
es and said he expects to be eligible for
basketball in January and football next
fall.
Men's basketball co-captain Travis
Conlan said Streets, who played some
spare minutes as a reserve guard last bas-
ketball season, likely will decide in
January whether he will play basketball
again. Streets could not be reached for
comment.
Ellerbe and Conlan also dismissed the
possibility that All-America cornerback
Charles Woodson would play basketball.
Woodson's Jordan-esque leaping ability
enables him to make spectacular inter-
ceptions on the football field and acro-

batic dunks on the playground. But he
"can't dribble or shoot," Conlan joked.
Jansen and Bowens were outstanding
prep basketball players, receiving schol-
arship offers in both basketball and foot-
ball. While at Clawson High School,
Jansen even played against Conlan, then
at St. Clair Shores Lake Shore. "All I
remember is that he was a big force
inside," Conlan said.
Playing college basketball, however,
would be a challenge. Not only would
they have to sharpen their stale skills to
perform in the Big Ten, Ellerbe said, they
would have to straighten out their person-
al situations.
Since Jansen is on a football scholar-
ship, he would have to clear plans with
football coach Lloyd Carr. Neither
Jansen nor Carr could be reached for
comment last night, but both said
Monday that the subject will not be dis-
cussed until the football season con-
cludes.
There is no doubt, however, that the
basketball bug came back to Jansen this
summer. A three-week break in early
August between offseason weightlifting
and two-a-days gave Jansen the chance to
work out with the basketball team.
Conlan said the 6-foot-7, 300-pound
Jansen was "able to keep up with" 6-foot-
8, 300-pound center Robert Traylor "just
fine" in unsupervised pickup games at
Crisler.
"But because Jon's the captain of the
football team, I don't even know if coach
Carr would let him play basketball,"
Conlan said. Potentially, Jansen has a lot
to lose. An injury could be incredibly
costly.
"Hey, the guy's going to be a high NFL
draft pick," said Ellerbe, who also said he
had not spoken to Jansen directly. "I'm
sure he's going to want to take his time
and figure out what's best for him and
everyone involved.:
Bowens, the school's single-season
sack record holder, would have to face

larger obstacles than Jansen. His academ-
ic troubles, he said, were caused by poor
time management and the emotional tur-
moil that followed the shooting of a close
friend. Bowens, who would not identify
the friend, said he spent much of his free
time with the friend at the hospital as his
grades dropped.
After Bowens was declared ineligible
for spring practice, Carr helped him
transfer during the summer to Eastern
Kentucky, where Bowens said he would
have prepared for an NFL career. But he
was able to get out of the deal.
"I was mad at myself," Bowens said. "I
took advantage of being a student-athlete
by neglecting the academic resources
available to me that the school was pro-
viding. I committed to Eastern Kentucky,
but when I came back (to Ann Arbor), I
changed my mind."
Intervention by several of his team-
mates - including Woodson and former
Orchard Lake St. Mary's teammate
DiAllo Johnson, who is a defensive back
at Michigan - convinced him to make a
comeback. Woodson, Johnson and other
players have worn Bowens's old No. 6 on
their wristbands this season as a show of
support. "We care about him, and we
want him to know that," Woodson said
earlier this year.
Bowens is living in an Ypsilanti apart-
ment, working full-time to support him-
self. With no football scholarship, he has
had to pay for school himself.
"It's really difficult," Bowens said.
"I've realized the opportunities that I had'
and I'm still a die-hard Michigan man. I
want another chance.
"(To) everyone who was a fan of
David Bowens, I want to say I'm sorry
for letting them down. But I have prob-
lems of my own. I let myself down,
Coach Carr and everyone who represent-
ed me. I wasn't a student-athlete; I was an
athlete. And that's going to change.
"I'm going to be eligible, and basket-
ball is going to happen."
