My friend want to sign the deed to his house to my name. We would like to figure out how to make this legal if I should die the deed goes back to him and if he dies the deed is mine.

There are lots of ways, i.e., Trust, Life Estate Deed (possibly pour autre vie), Joint Ownership, etc, and probably a combination of of these alternatives. To do this right you need an attorney or you could face bigger problems later. It is not as simple as it may sound.
