ESPN 150 WR Laquon Treadwell waits
By Kipp Adams
Coming into The Opening, wide receiver Laquon Treadwell (Crete, Ill./Crete-Monee) said he was ready to make a decision. But after the four day event in Beaverton, Ore., the ESPN 150 wide receiver was no closer to committing than he was before.
Gridiron Kings 2012
Live from Disney's ESPN Wide World of Sports in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., follow RecruitingNation's comprehensive coverage of Gridiron Kings. The championship game will be shown in prime time at 7 p.m. Sunday on ESPNU.
On the eve of Gridiron Kings, Treadwell said he is going to take a couple visits before selecting a program.
"I am going to take some officials to LSU, Auburn, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State," Treadwell said. "I should be ready to make my decision after I see a couple of schools."
A recent offer has put a prominent SEC program in the mix for the 6-foot-3, 195-pound wideout.
"I would like to learn more about LSU, go on a visit, and then take it from there," Treadwell said.
While Treadwell did not mention the Wolverines among his visit plans, there is no doubt as to which team is in the driver's seat for the No. 38 prospect's commitment.
"Michigan is still No. 1," Treadwell said. "I am comfortable with them and I feel like home when I am up there. I have a great relationship with Shane Morris (Warren, Mich./De La Salle) that has been building ever since my sophomore year. We are basically best friends."
