A week ago, Crete-Monee (Ill.) junior wide receiver Laquon Treadwell was still looking for his first offer. Sunday night he was sitting on two offers from two of the Midwest's most tradition-rich programs.
The 6-3, 200-pound Treadwell's first offer came in last week from Michigan. Later that week, Notre Dame assistant coach Chuck Martin came by Crete-Monee to check out Treadwell and stuck around for their game that night.
"Friday he came in and talked to my coach, said he was going to be at the game," Treadwell said. "My coaches called my mom, and my mom told me to call the coaching staff. When I called up there he just told me I had an offer."

Even before Sunday night's offer, Treadwell was planning to take a recruiting visit to South Bend to see Notre Dame play host to USC this coming weekend.
"I just want to see how their coaches are, the team and the leadership," he said. "I will be watching their offense and see how they operate."
Martin gave Treadwell a preview of what he could expect from Notre Dame's offense during their conversation Sunday evening.
"He just told me to look at the receivers and how many catches they have," Treadwell said. "He talked about their academics and how they have 98 percent graduation [rate]."
Treadwell said he is "very interested" in both of the schools that recently offered him a scholarship and is just starting to digest his new opportunities.
"I'm just excited and I'm going to see what plays out best for me and my family," Treadwell said.
