|Decision timeframe continues to shift for Treadwell|
Keeping up with the decision plans for Crete (Ill.) Monee wide receiver Laquon Treadwell has been a tough chore for fans of the recruiting process, with regular shifting on when he will make a choice. The 6-3, 185 pound athlete admits that he has at times felt rushed to cut down his list, but he has settled in on a plan for how his recruitment will proceed.
While at one point stating he would have a choice during the summer months, he began focusing on a later decision, before again talking about making a pledge before he started his senior year. The talented receiver detailed his current thinking on the matter.
“I’ll probably decide during my high school season,” he stated. “I’m still looking at Oklahoma State, Oklahoma, Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, Notre Dame and Illinois. That’s actually narrowed down a lot. There were a lot of schools on me. I just didn’t know what to do, so I just had to think about which ones I really wanted to go to … But I want to take some official visits.”
While official visits will have to wait until after the start of his senior year, Treadwell is considering plans for the summer months as well. A possible visit to Michigan could align with his participation in the Midwest Elite 7-on-7 Football Passing Camp held on Saturday and Sunday, and he may check out another college campus in the near future as well.
“I’m thinking about getting up to Oklahoma and Oklahoma State on June 8,” he noted. “My uncle lives down there and he’s thinking about flying me out and staying with him during the season. I haven’t really planned any other visits for the summer.”
At the 7-on-7 camp, Treadwell got to compete against some possible future teammates, should he choose Michigan. Seeing the Wolverines future signal caller Shane Morris in action certainly didn’t hurt the Maize and Blue’s chances with the talented receiver.
“You need a quarterback to make it to the next level in college. He’s a real good quarterback and I like him a lot and how he throws the ball,” explained Treadwell. “I’m going to hang out with Shane after this. I think he did pretty well. I don’t think he was playing serious, but he did pretty well. He got a nice spiral on the ball and he can definitely get it there – I know that.”
Treadwell went on to explain exactly what he wants to see in his future college selection.
“I want to like the coaches and the players,” he noted. “I just want to be comfortable with the town and everybody. I just want to find a place where I feel at home and can play my game in their system.”
Treadwell is rated as a four-star prospect by all four major recruiting services.
