"All he's thinking about right now is getting back on the field and playing baseball again," Charles Ehrlich said Friday. "He's feeling good." Ehrlich said Gooden will be released from a New York City drug rehabilitation center next week after completing a 28-day treatment program. "I believe it's Thursday, but I don't believe the date is definite," he said in an interview from St. Petersburg, Fla. "It could be a day earlier or a day later, but it's in that time frame." Gooden, who won the National League's Cy Young Award in 1985, was admitted to the Smithers Center for Alcohol and Drug Treatment on April 2 after he tested positive for cocaine. Ehrlich said doctors at the center determined that Gooden was an occasional cocaine user, not an addict. ''We always felt that was the case," he said. "We knew that Dwight was not a big drug user." Ehrlich said he expects Gooden 'to return to the Mets within a few weeks. "He's still in good shape, but he'll need some time to get his pitching eye back," he said. Mets spokesman Jay Hor-witz would not comment on reports that Gooden would be released Thursday. Dr. Allan Lans, associate director of the center, also declined comment. Horwitz said the Mets will know more about the 22-year-old pitcher's status after Gen-i eral Manager Frank Cashen talks with doctors at the Smithers Center this weekend. He al so said Mets' officials will discuss Gooden's situation with baseball Commissioner Peter Ueberroth before making any decision about the pitcher's future. Richard Levin, a spokesman for Ueberroth, said the commissioner will be involved in the final decision on Gooden's playing status. Gooden was not penalized by Ueberroth because he agreed to undergo treatment. In 1985, Gooden was 24-4 with a 1.53 ERA and became the youngest player to win a Cy Young Award. Last season, he slipped to 17-6 with a 2.84 ERA and was hit hard in two World Series starts. During the past year, Gooden has been involved in a series of off-the-field incidents, including a scuffle with police 'iin his hometown of Tampa, J' Fla., last December. He was arrested and later placed on probation.

Despite a spring-game record 407 rushing yards, the firstJ-nd fourth-team players on the Reds needed a 1-yard touchdown by Tyreese Knox with 44 seconds left to hold off the Whites, made up of second-and third-string players. Three records fell in the second quarter alone when Jones and Terry Rodgers scored on long plays. Jones, who rushed for 166 yards on nine carries by half-time, broke the spring game rushing record with an 84-yard run for the game's first score with 4 : 50 left in the first half. The run was the longest in Nebraska spring game history, erasing the 64-yard record by Dave Koile in 1954. Jones' total rushing yards topped the 137-yard record by Paul Miles set in the 1985 game. Rodgers and quarterback Gerry Gdowski for the Whites combined on the longest pass play in an NU spring game City sports menu Here is a rundown of upcoming sports events involving Columbus city j high schools:" :;-: r Monday, April 27 TRACK & FIELD - Lake-view-Scotus boys dual at Lakeview, 4:15 p.m.; Lake-view-Scotus-Schuyler girls triangular at Memorial Stadium, 4 :30p.m. GOLF Columbus High at Fremont, dual, 4 : 30 p.m. Tuesday, April 28 TRACK & FIELD - Columbus High boys-girls host York, dual, 4: 15 p.m. GOLF Scotus-Lakeview dual at Elks Country Club, 4 p.m. Thursday, April 30 TRACK & FIELD Lake-view-Scotus boys-girls (Scotus boys reserves) at Lakeview Invite, 3:30 p.m. GOLF Scotus-Columbus High dual at Elks Country Club, 4 p.m.; Lakeview at Schuyler, dual, 4 : 30 p.m. TENNIS - Columbus High host Grand Island Central Catholic, dual, 4 p.m. Friday, May 1 TRACK & FIELD - Columbus High boys-girls host Grand Island, Norfolk, Hastings, quadrangular meet, at Memorial Stadium, 4:15 p.m.; Scotus boys at Blair Invite, 4 p.m. GOLF Columbus High at Capital City Invite, Lincoln, 9 a.m.; Lakeview at Albion, dual, 4 p.m. Saturday, May 2 TENNIS - Columbus High at Papillion Invite, 8 a.m. with a 76-yard effort late in the second quarter.

When representatives of the .28 teams gather at a Times Square hotel Tuesday to divide up college talent, they will find the pool similar to those in the four years since the remarkable class of 1983 that already has produced seven starting quarterbacks and 13 players who have made Pro Bowls. That means 10 or 12 outstanding players to provide immediate help for the weakest teams; another half-dozen at a second level; 50 or so in a third group and perhaps 125 more who, with nurturing, can turn into productive NFL players. And what that means is the mid-dle-of-the-pack teams may have no better chance at good players than playoff teams who have shown over the past few years a sharp eye for talent, even in the lower rounds. This year's class is led by quarterback Vinny Testaverde of Miami, the Heisman Trophy winner, who already has been signed by Tampa Bay and will be officially designated the first choice by the 2-14 Bucs when Commissioner Pete Rozelle gavels the room to order at 7 a.m. CDT. Then the Indianapolis Colts are expected to take linebacker Cornelius Bennett of Alabama, considered by some scouts the near-equal of NFL MVP Lawrence Taylor. Or the Colts might trade the choice to someone who will take Bennett. Then come perhaps 10 players who should be instant starters. They include two of Testaverde's Miami teammates, running back Alonzo Highsmith and defensive lineman Jerome Brown; defensive back Rod Woodson of Purdue, probably the best pure athlete in the draft; defensive lineman Reggie Rogers of Washington; running backs Brent Fullwood of Auburn and D.J. Dozier of Penn State; and linebackers Shane Conlan of Penn State and Mike Jun-kinofDuke. From then on, it becomes a guessing game, and could also become a trading game. The Super Bowl champion New York Giants, for example, had a record four second-round picks last year. They won't this year, but they nave enough surplus talent to deal either up or down. San Francisco has two late first-round picks and might use them to . move up for one of the top 10 players. Houston might parlay its two first-rounders into a trade for Bennett and Washington always is sure to make some sort of deal. This year's draft seems deepest in linebackers and defensive linemen and thinnest in offensive linemen. In addition to Rogers, Bennett, Conlan and Junkin, first-round talent on defense includes linemen Danny Noonan of Nebraska, Jason Buck and Sean Knight of Brigham Young and John Bosa of Boston College, and defensive end-linebacker Tony Woods of Pitt. But beyond Harris Barton of North Carolina, there are few offensive linemen that excite anyone. John Clay of Missouri is considered a monumental talent but monumental eating habits that increased his weight up to 330 pounds make him a question mark. Beyond Testaverde, there's no sure thing at quarterback, although Kelly Stouffer of Colorado State and Chris Miller of Oregon may well be taken in the first round by teams willing to gamble. Jim Harbaugh of Michigan, John Paye of Stanford and Cody Carlson of Baylor should also go in the first few rounds. The first-round running backs include Fullwood, Highsmith and Dozier and perhaps a group that includes Paul Palmer of Temple, Roger Vick of Texas A&M and Kenny Flowers and Terrence Flagler of Clemson. The most intriguing runner is Christian Okoye of Azusa Pacific, a 255-pound fullback from Nigeria who played his first football less than three years ago. Perhaps the most typical position is receiver there are eight to 10 with clear NFL talent but no stick-outs like the 1985 draft trio of Eddie Brown, AlToon and Jerry Rice. Tight end Rod Bernstine of Texas A&M figures to be a first-round choice and so do wide receivers Haywood Jeffires of North Carolina State and Ricky Nattiel of Florida.
