Junior Receiver Treadwell Set to Visit Ann Arbor
Michigan fans recognize Crete-Monee (Ill.) High School as the home of 2012 defensive back commit Anthony Standifer, but he's not the only Division-1 prospect on the Warriors' football team. His junior teammate, wide receiver LaQuon Treadwell is hearing from colleges as well.
"I received some letters two days ago," Treadwell said, "Nothing much yet, just filling out information sheets and stuff like that."
One of the schools that has been in touch is Michigan. The Wolverines are losing several wideouts to graduation in the next two years, and Treadwell - a speedy 6-3 180-pounder - is the type of receiver that they're looking for. With his older teammate Standifer already in the fold for 2012, they may have a leg up in his recruitment.
"We talk about it a lot. Yeah, that's a big deal. Playing with a teammate from high school would be nice," said Treadwell.
Standifer and Treadwell will both be in the house for Michigan's first-ever night game against Notre Dame this weekend. After watching the season-opener against Western Michigan on TV, Treadwell is excited to see the game in person.
"I'm kinda mad [the Western Michigan game] got rained out. It was a good game, and I think they're playing as a team," Treadwell said. "I'm ready to just see the game live."
Michigan is joined by Georgia Tech and Nebraska at the top of Treadwell's list. However, recruiting is his second priority for now, because he's busy helping to bring Crete-Monee to the pinnacle of Illinois high school football.
"I'm looking for the team to go undefeated and win the state championship," he said.
After minimal offensive production in his team's first game of the season, Treadwell had a breakout game in week two, making six receptions for 124 yards, and reaching the endzone twice. He also helps his team at defense, just an example of his team-first attitude.
"I'm just contributing to my team," he says. "If they bracket me [like in the first game] it's just opening things up for my teammates to help us get the win."
That team-first attitude is something that one lucky school will be happy to add.
