ACE: An Update From Laquon Treadwell

Submitted by Ace on November 24th, 2011 at 12:12 PM

I managed to catch up with 2013 four-star receiver Laquon Treadwell on Tuesday, and he gave me a quick update on his recruitment, including a potential decision date. He'll be in Ann Arbor this weekend with his teammate and 2012 commit Anthony Standifer to watch the Ohio State game. [Note: This week's recruiting roundup will go up on Friday. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.]

ACE: First of all, your season finished a couple weeks ago, and you guys finished up 10-1. How did you feel about the team's performance and your own performance this season?

LAQUON: I think our team was great, and I had a good performance this year. I improved a lot, in a lot of cases—my route-running improved, and my catching, and my ability to break tackles improved a lot.

ACE: Do you know your stats off the top of your head?

LAQUON: I think they were 1,400 yards and 18 touchdowns.

ACE: Not bad at all. You're coming in this weekend for the Ohio State game. Are you excited about the visit?

LAQUON: I'm very excited. I keep trying to go every time I get a chance to go down there, but my ride never comes through, there's always something [Treadwell tried to visit last weekend as well].

ACE: I know last time we talked you said it was important that you had your mom with you on some visits before you made your decision. [Laquon: Yeah!] Is she coming up with you for this one?

LAQUON: I'm not sure. I think she is—she said she doesn't have to work, so we [both] should be able to make it up there.

ACE: Is there anything specific that you're looking for on this trip, or are you just looking to come up and enjoy the game?

LAQUON: Enjoy the game, listen to the fans and everything, and enjoy the atmosphere of Michigan.

ACE: I know you're obviously in contact with Anthony [Standifer], but are you in contact with any other recruits?

LAQUON: I've talked to Shane. I talked to him last week about last weekend, but I haven't talked to him lately.

ACE: I'm guessing Shane is trying to sell you on the program?

LAQUON: [Laughs] Yeah.

ACE: You've got offers from Michigan and Notre Dame right now. Are there any other schools that have been showing more interest in you since your season ended?

LAQUON: Wisconsin, Nebraska, Auburn, and Vanderbilt.

ACE: Do you have any leaders at the time?


ACE: Is there any sort of timeline for when you make a decision?

LAQUON: Either on my birthday, June 14th, or the day of our first game or something like that.

It's good to get some recruiting news in the midst of Meyer Mania.  Is there a list of recruits/commits that will be in the Big House this weekend?  I heard that Kalis is supposed to be bringing Dunn up with him but I haven't seen a complete list.  Thanks for your hard work.  Go Blue.

Everyone's been tallking about how once his mom got on campus, it was only a matter of her approval. Hopefully he has a great visit this weekend and commits.

Reading is that he has no leader and he will decide in a year or so.
<br>Hope he goes blue eventually but it sounds like he will give it a minute and let his senior year start before anything.
