Top WR Treadwell sets decision date

By Jared Shanker


One program will get an instant boost to its passing game when the No. 1 receiver nationally announces his decision.

The No. 1 receiver nationally, Laquon Treadwell (Crete, Ill./Crete-Monee) will make his final official visit this weekend, and he will make his decision shortly after that on Jan. 17, Treadwell told WolverineNation's Tom VanHaaren.

The three finalists for Treadwell are Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Ole Miss.

Treadwell will make an official visit to Oklahoma State this weekend. He made an official visit to Ole Miss on Nov. 30 and Oklahoma on Dec. 14. He has visited Ole Miss several times, and the Rebels are considered heavy favorites to land Treadwell.

The four-star prospect was a Michigan lean for several months, but Treadwell's recruitment shifted in the Rebels' favor during the season. He has a former teammate and close friend in Anthony Standifer in Oxford already.

Treadwell is No. 20 in the ESPN 150.
