this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
Down to Ole Miss, Oklahoma & Oklahoma State. Not unexpected but still disappointing he didn't make it to Michigan for an official visit for a final shot to change his mind.
Kid's been on campus so many times this isn't a big deal either way.
Treadwell has visited each of those schools except for the two Oklahoma-based schools. He plans an official visit to Oklahoma the weekend of Oct. 26 when the Sooners are scheduled to host Notre Dame. An official visit to Oklahoma State is planned, but a date has not been scheduled yet for that trip.
I don't think Michigan State is much of a threat, but those two Oklahoma schools worry me.
Per WolverineNation, Laquon Treadwell is no longer visiting this weekend. This is straight from TVH.
Link is $ but here it is anyway.
Treadwell performed great at pretty much all the camps he attended. Rivals is even speculating that he could be in the running for #1 when the new ratings come out. While I don't see that happening I could definitely see him moving up. Come on LaQuon turn blue already!
Bailey also getting some attention.
Shane Morris and target Laquon Treadwell are playing together on the Midwest team in the Champion Gridiron Kings 7-on-7 Tournament this weekend. Pool play competition started today with the Tournament final Sunday at noon ET (stream live on ESPN3 and broadcast at 7pm ET on ESPNU).
EDIT #1: Tournament bracket is set: West vs. Southeast. Midwest vs. Southwest. Winners advance to final at 12pm ET (live on http://espn3.com)
EDIT #2: Midwest will play Southeast in final. In the semis, Midwest beat Southwest 20-14, and Southeast defeated West 26-20.
EDIT #3: Southeast defeats Midwest 47-19. Morris didn't have the same rhythm in 2nd half. If you watch the tape delay on ESPNU tonight on 7pm, I recommend turning it off at halftime.
The bad news: Midwest team has opened the tournament 1-2. Midwest lost their opener vs. the West 27-21 after Morris could not connect with Treadwell on a fade on 4th and goal. Midwest then lost their 2nd game vs. the Southeast 20-7. Midwest pulled out their first win in the final game of pool play with a Morris 65 yd TD pass in the final minute vs. the Southwest 20-14.
The good news: Reports have Shane and Laquon developing nice chemistry on the field.
It's been Shane Morris to LaQuon Treadwell all day for the Midwest team, best kind of recruiting pitch a QB can make to a WR...
