Rebels impress nations top receiver

Laquon treadwell 7 14 200
The only out-of-region team Crete-Monee (Ill.) wide receiver Laquon Treadwell has been able to visit is Ole Miss. On Saturday, the four-star prospect was back in Oxford to see the Rebels play host to Texas.
"The game atmosphere was crazy. I loved it," Treadwell said. "It is kind of different from the Big Ten; more rowdy. The Big Ten is loud, but it is more crazy down there in the SEC.
"I loved the offense and they give their playmakers a chance. Donte Moncrief had a great game and they just kept throwing it to him because he had a match up. They didn't stop throwing the ball."
Treadwell made his first visit to Ole Miss earlier this summer with the mother of his former teammate and current Ole Miss cornerback Anthony Standifer. That trip introduced him to the campus, and he came away with a deeper appreciation for the area after his game day visit.
"I love the campus and hung out at The Grove for an hour or two and met a bunch of people," Treadwell said. "We hung out in Anthony's dorm and it was all great."
Treadwell was joined on his visit to Ole Miss by his mother and two teammates. His mother had not accompanied him on his previous visit to the Rebel's campus.
"She liked it a lot," Treadwell said. "She met most of the coaches."
Conversations with the Ole Miss coaches also centered around getting the four-star prospect back on campus for another game visit.
"They want me to come up for the Auburn game, so we'll have to see," Treadwell said.
The visit to Ole Miss was unofficial, but the time for official visits is coming and on Sunday night Treadwell put his first one on the books.
"I just talked to [Oklahoma] Coach [Jay] Norvell about 30 minutes ago and I'm going to come out when they play Notre Dame on Oct. 27," Treadwell said.
The Sooners and Rebels are two of six favorites Treadwell named earlier this weekend. The other four are Florida, Michigan, Michigan State and Oklahoma State.
