his NCAA baseball eligibility but
still play football for Michigan.
During the summer, he'd play minor
league ball.
Or he can listen to all the cheesy
ommercials and stay in school,
ejecting the Yankees, and enter the
4FL or baseball draft a couple years
Sown the line.
Drew, do yourself a favor, take the
money and run.
When someone offers you millions
of dollars to play a game, don't think
twice. Henson stays in school, he
risks injury. Playing both football

and baseball would tax his body, and
he can lose both careers to an injury.
Look at Jeter, the Yankees short-
stop who fled the Michigan baseball
program to play for the Bronx
Bombers. He's a millionaire, and
he's wanted by every female under
the age of 25, and most over, in the
state of New York.
Then look at former Michigan run-
ning back Tyrone Wheatley. After his
junior season at Michigan, when he
established himself as one of the top
running backs in the country, he
shocked a lot of people by coming
back to Michigan for his senior year,
despite being a projected top-five
pick. He injured his shoulder early in

his senior season and hasn't been the
same player since. His NFL career
has seen more of the bench in Giants
Stadium than the field in Giants
Stadium.
New York awaits, the city that
never sleeps, the city that rewards -
but also chastises - its athletes like
no other city. The city that made leg-
ends from Babe Ruth to Joe Namath
to Mookie Wilson ... to Drew
Henson?
But Henson's not too likely to
make the jump to the Yankees.
Playing Michigan football has been a
dream of Henson his entire life. He
committed to the school almost two
years ago.

Not only that, he personally called
potential recruits to convince them to
don the winged helmets with him.
Rejecting Michigan would be break-
ing . his word to his fellow
Wolverines, something Henson isn't
likely to do.
So, he might go for option two,
likely the worst of the three choices.
If Henson plays minor league ball for
the Yankees, he will have to miss
spring and summer practice, some-
thing that can't make Lloyd Carr too
happy. He might never start a game
for the Michigan football team. One
of the best arms in the country could
be wasted.
That leaves option three. Stay in

school, become the best shortstop to
play for Michigan since Barry
Larkin, the best quarterback sinec
Jim Harbaugh.
This is the choice that most
Michigan fans want to see Henson
make. The man has become a legend
in the state - while only playing
high school ball - and four years at
Michigan can turn legendary status
into a god-like one.
But he could hurt an arm, a shoul-
der, a leg. A 300-pound linebacker
could squash him like an empty beer
can.
Jeter and Steve Miller know what
they're talking about. Take the
money and run.
