Crete-Monee (Ill.) 2013 wide receiver Laquon Treadwell has been able to visit Michigan on several occasions because his teammate, 2012 cornerback Anthony Standifer is a Michigan commitment.
On Saturday, the two Crete-Monee prospects made another trip to Ann Arbor, this time to take in the Wolverine's night game against Notre Dame.
"It was very exciting," Treadwell said. "The fans made the game 10 times better… it makes the players play at another level. That's why I like Michigan a lot, because of the fan base."

Following the game, Treadwell said Michigan has vaulted to the stop spot on his list and is the early leader for his services.
The wide receiver position was an integral part of Michigan's win over Notre Dame on Saturday, and Treadwell was paying close attention to how they performed in the game.
"At the beginning they made a lot of drops, but since the end was so great I think they made up for it," Treadwell said. "But overall the receivers did a great job of making plays."
Besides Standifer, Treadwell also spent time with Michigan commitments Devin Funchess and Terry Richardson. He also waited around after the game to talk with head coach Brady Hoke and assistant Curt Mallory about how the Wolverines plan to recruit him going forward.
They said keep my grades up," Treadwell said. "I really think I should have an offer by the end of the season."
Treadwell is off to a great start to his junior season with 10 catches for 300 yards and four touchdowns in his last two games. Other teams showing interest in the 6-3, 183-pound receiver include Iowa, Northwestern, Notre Dame, Michigan State, Mississippi State, Toledo and Vanderbilt.
