Hecruit Continued from Page Bl muscle can be tested again on the machine to see how close to full strength it is. Q. " Will I be able to play other sports at Purdue?" A. Burtnett said he encourages his players to compete in other sports and mentioned some of his current players, including running back Mel Gray and defensive back Donnie Anderson, who are on the track team, and freshman fullback Rodney Carter, who will play baseball. Q. "Who tutors the players and how qualified are they?" A. Burtnett said the tutors are recommended by the department heads and added that the players' advisors are usually deans or assistant deans. Q. "What about your computer science department?" A. Burtnett got this question a couple times. "I can promise you we're great in that field," he replied. "We're one of the best in the country. It depends on what survey you read, but. we're usually ranked in the top three. "Purdue is very strong in science. Five of the first . 10 astronauts were from Purdue." Assistant Coach Willard Wells then said, "The department has just doubled from 15 to 30 full-time faculty members. They are convinced, in fact surveys show, that the day is coming soon when almost evey one will have home computers." "They just got a new computer at Purdue," Burtnett said, "that's the largest of any on a college campus." Q. "What about a drug problem? Do you give drugs for injuries?" A. "No," said Burtnett. "The pro teams may give them, but college teams don't. We don't have a drug problem on our team. Now I'm not naive enough to think some of them don't smoke marijuana, but we have not had any real problems. We've had a few problems with alcohol, but not drugs." Q. "What about holidays?" A. "We can help the players find jobs," Burtnett said. "The people in our area and our alumni are good about that." Brown- Continued from PageBl member schools are taking is upgrading our schedules." . Brown pointed out his team beat Wisconsin and Bradley in pre-conf erence play, and played well in losing to Indiana and Memphis State. "We've been fortunate to have a quality player in Ray McCallum (Cardinal guard from Muncie Central who is the MAC's all-time leading scorer) to guide us to the NCAA tournament two years ago, but other schools in our league are getting players like that, too," Brown said.

Rick Simmons, Air Force Ernest Patterson, New Mexico St. Q. "Who will be here on signing day?" A. "Coach Wells will be back to sign your son," said Burtnett. "This year the NCAA won't allow the head coaches to be present for any signings, so in our case, the assistant coach who has recruited that player will deliver the tender on signing day. "Also, if you want to have a press conference, that's up to you, but our coaches can't participate or appear in any pictures. The press conference will have to be arranged by the high school coach and the local media." m Three times, when Burtnett asked "Do you have any questions?" the mother mentioned academics. "No," said one, "just mostly interested in the educational part." "I was really interested in summer school," said another, "and you covered that quite well." "No," said the other, "but I think (my son) was really impressed with Purdue from what he tells me. But I think that summer school program is good because I know he really throws himself into football during the season, but I feel grades are important. "I am concerned about him being far away from home at a big school." Burtnett, who had already covered both subjects in his recruiting pitch, used current Purdue running back Mel Gray as an example of someone who had a similar concern. "Our No. 1 tailback, Mel Gray, was all set to go to Pittsburgh," Burtnett said, "until he visited there and thought the school and the city were too big, so he came to Purdue." One time Burtnett asked a recruit, who was also considering Michigan and Notre Dame, "What's important to you?" "A coach who will care about the players," he answered, "and push them toward a degree. And the opportunity to play." Not immediately thereafter, but a little later, Burtnett touched on the subject. "I feel I'm a player's coach," he said. "You can talk to me. I can tell you have the same kind of relationship with your high school coach, or he wouldn't be here." The high school coach had come out to the home to sit in on the visit and later answered when the father asked, "What's the commitment from Purdue if the coaches change?"
