Treadwell Aims To Get It Right

Crete (Ill.) Monee receiver Laquon Treadwell wants to be 100-percent, positively sure about his college decision before pulling the trigger.

As a junior, Treadwell caught 75 passes for 1,400 yards and 18 touchdowns.

That’s a refreshing thing.

In what seems like normal happenings in the world of college football recruiting, where decommitments are frequent and so are committed prospects taking visits to other schools, Treadwell is doing his best not to fall in the same line.

“I’ve gotten real close to actually making it out and everything,” Treadwell said about possibly committing. “I told my mom and a couple coaches one time. Only thing that held me back is there are a couple of other schools and they’re special programs and I want to see what they have, and I’d like to take all my visits before I make my decision.”

For the longest, Michigan has been the team to beat for the 6-foot-3, 195-pound Treadwell, who is currently pegged as the nation’s No. 4 receiver and the No. 41 prospect overall in the 247Composite Rankings. While the Wolverines have set the bar, Treadwell still feels he doesn’t have all the data to make the most informed decision. Last weekend, he took a trip to Ole Miss and the Rebels showed him enough that now he’s looking forward to getting back for an official. This weekend or next weekend, Treadwell says he’d like to return to Michigan State for an overnight stay. Besides Ole Miss and the Wolverines, he said other possible official visit scenarios include Auburn, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State.

“That’s the one thing my head coach wants me to do, he said take all my visits to schools I want to see before I commit,” Treadwell said. “He said he doesn’t want the attention of me committing and decommitting and seeing other schools. He wants me to wait until I see the right school and have the right school.”

In the class-of-2013, Treadwell sees other prospects wavering on their decision or changing their minds all together. He doesn’t have a problem with it. It’s just not for him.

“I just think they weren’t really ready to decide and they want to see other schools, or another school caught their interest later on in the process.”

As the process continues for Treadwell, no surprise there isn't a timetable for a college decision.
