Treadwell to announce thursday (no Michigan)

Submitted by TexanGOBLUE on January 9th, 2013 at 9:29 PM

Per Tom VH's twitter:

@TomVH: Confirmed that WR Laquon Treadwell will be announcing his decision on Thursday at 5 between Ole Miss, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State.

Too bad I thought he would be the next #1.

[EDIT] Date set for  Thursday January 17th.

I'm not sure what that means.  Are you saying UVA fans don't belittle other schools with their superiority complex?  If so, you haven't spent as much time on UVA grass as I have.  And it sure seems like you're doing the same thing that annoys you about Michigan fans.  Maybe you should put your pot in the cupboard and move your glass house away from that UVA grass . . .

Does anybody have an explanation for why Treadwell went from a supposed Michigan lock to not even considering us?  I realize that he is a teenagers, etc..  I was just wondering if there was a particular reason.

She says oh yeah I'm total interested but not now, but you hold out hope. You hang around her hoping that she'll finally come to and be your girl but there was always something missing. After like a yeat of this, she picks the jock bro and says you should still be friends. Thats why.

17 years old and free trips to the Big House, I mean hell I've went to games for teams I could care less about but I had awesome (free) seats so why not?

I truly believe we were the leaders early on but then with all the attention he was getting he decided to look around and found a hotter girl, no worries on that and its on to the next one.

Has hot chicks,and one of his best friends. Ok. State has a really nice offense for receivers. Oklahoma has a pretty darn good program too, played in a couple of BCS title games, wide open offense typically. For the past two years he watched denard run crazy, not a ton of passing happening here lately. These are the only reasons I can come up with. Wherever he goes, may he have success except when he plays the wolverines...

Not sure whats wrong with Treadwell wanting to play ball with his best friend and Nkemdiche wanting to play ball with his brother I think it's really that simple.  I would much rather have Nkemdiche's brother and Standifer here than some of our incoming Wide Out recruits especially since with along with them come the number 1 Player in the nation and number 1 Wide out. Not a bad trade off for taking two lower prospects.

He visited OU on Dec 14.  He has a visit with Ok St. this weekend.

From mind of Mike:

Ole Miss is the team to beat right now heading into an official to Oklahoma State this weekend. Treadwell has two officials left after this weekend, if he wants to take them, so a surprise program could enter the picture. But right now, it's Ole Miss.

Sorry, really doesn't smell right.  Oklahoma is an elite program and Oklahoma State hs great passing offenses and have developed NFL recievers. Ole Miss just doesn't make sense. Not like he has family ties there.  Smells fishy.

His friend and former Michigan commit Anthony Standifer goes to Ole Miss... but I still have no idea why anyone would want to go to Ole Miss. I'm guessing Ok. St. gets him. Whatever happens, best of luck to him.

He who was a former commit to our 2012 class is there and I think that's how the connection got started. Still though, why a 5* receiver would elect to go to the saddest of all SEC programs is a bit beyond me, best friends be damned

His best friend and former Michigan recruit Anthony Standifer goes there. There is no love loss between the Standifer's and Michigan either. This is the major reason Treadwell isn't attending UofM. If Standifer was here Treadwell would have been a Wolverine months ago.

Wish him the best, but that shipped sailed a long time ago.  I'm sure he'll pick the best program for him, but I could not care less about where he decides to play football.

He wants to go to Ole Miss to be with his friend Anthony Standifer like he says. Do we want a kid interested in winning (us, Ok, and Ok. State are simply better football schools than Ole Miss) or do we want someone interested in hanging out with his friend at a bottomfeeder school in the SEC? You guys decide.

EDIT: He's visited OK and Ole Miss so there's still a chance OK (or OK St.?) get him...

If I were a young Wide Receiver I'd be pretty interested in playing at Texas Tech or A&M next year. Baylor, even, will offer a wideout plenty of opportunities to make a name for himself, but that's just me.
