Ole Miss lands verbal from Class of 2013′s top WR

Laquon Treadwell

With National Signing Day fast approaching, an SEC school that doesn’t rhyme with “Schmalabama” has (verbally) landed one of the biggest fishes in the 2013 recruiting pond.

In a televised press conference from his Crete (Ill.) Monee High School, Laquon Treadwell announced that he has verbally committed to Ole Miss.  Oklahoma and Oklahoma State were also in the wide receiver’s top three.

“I just love everything about Ole Miss,” the receiver said. “I love what Coach [Hugh] Freeze is doing. He’s always positive and is a great role model for his players.”

While the commitment was far from a surprise as Treadwell has been considered a heavy lean toward Oxford, it’s a huge get nonetheless for Hugh Freeze and his staff.

The 6-3, 198-pound Treadwell is rated as the top player in the state of Illinois by Rivals.com and 24/7Sports.com, with the former rating him as the No. 1 receiver in the country and the latter No. 3.  Rivals also has Treadwell rated as the No. 10 player at any position in the Class of 2013.

    Ole Miss is quietly building a pretty great program. Next year’s team with Treadwell and likely Nkemdiche will be very solid. The problem is the SEC West is still the toughest division in CFB, and that was before adding A&M.

    Im a little surprised on his choice. OSU’s stable of all Big12 caliber QB’s, Gundy’s history building Bryant & Blackmon, and our offensive system would make OSU a great fit.

    Hearing he will never qualify academically.

    noring4youstill,

    What’s the matter? Self-esteem issues, where you have to bash other people’s schools to feel better about yourself?

    Ole Miss had always been a school that I didn’t understand why they didn’t win big all the time. If they just keep the kids home in thier state they would be fine. Hopefully this is the start of something big for the Reb Nation. By the way, I’m a LSU fan

    The only thing I need is a nap and a new diaper.

    KD I wasn’t bashing LSU. I was simply addressing the previous poster who’s name was forevalsu. So before you get your panties in a wad. And 9th ward homie with an IQ as high as that statement I’m surprised by two things. You know your sons and 2 your kids would even go to school let alone make it that far.

  9. noring4youstill says: Jan 17, 2013 10:36 PM

    Hor the problem is and will always be there is nothing to keep the kids in Oxford or Starkville. Not with the tradition when Bama comes calling or to play for a team like LSU that is at the top almost every year.

    Good for the coach, get out of the cellar. Ole Miss will be relevant again, soon.

    Why would any top recruit go there. Backwards, Jim crow state.

  13. noring4youstill says: Jan 18, 2013 7:58 AM

    Well I don’t know maybe because slavery ended over 150 damn years ago and the last time I checked we don’t have any over here. Unless you count those of us who are slaves to our government via taxes. You bout a dumbass.

    Why would you attend Ol’ Miss?…it’s certainly not for their academics…their not a good football program.

    How so, genius? Examples? I just mentioned that the kid may not qualify academically. Hopefully, I’m wrong. I think Hugh Freeze is doing a great job in turning Ole Miss around.

    I love it. People sign onto a sports blog, something very anonymous, with no accountability whatsoever, and then act surprised and astounded when someone pops off about a school. That’s why I attend this crazy thing, to get entertained by the arguments, and be in a place where you can state something before you think! Let the show continue!!!

  17. noring4youstill says: Jan 18, 2013 8:23 AM

    Jesus H Christ does anybody read previous post on this site? Dear ForevaLsu. I was addressing you and stating that any college program has ways around that. I was not implying that he was going to LSU or that your programmed cheated.

    No, you pretty much called out LSU. Nice try though.

  19. noring4youstill says: Jan 18, 2013 10:33 AM

    Dumbass do you need a friend? I like LSU. Would you like to be e-friends?

  20. burntorangehorn says: Jan 18, 2013 11:52 AM

    foreverlsu, it wasn’t a dig at LSU; it was how noring4youstill was indicating he/she was addressing you. I just did the same thing, but using your full username. C’mon, relax.

  21. foreverlsu says: Jan 18, 2013 1:30 PM

    Fair enough, burntorange. Thanks for the clarification …in English.

    Assuming the academics aren’t a huge issue, Treadwell’s in fine enough shape at QB. The Okie St. guys aren’t bad, but neither is Bo Wallace, and another member of Treadwell’s 2013 class is four-star QB Ryan Buchanan. While he’s quite mobile, which is highly prized in Freeze’s offense, he’s even more valued as a pocket passer. He’ll redshirt this fall, and then either he or Mikhail Miller should make a pretty good starter. Treadwell’s probably not going to have much of a problem getting the ball. Opposite him for the next two seasons will be Donte Moncrief, who appears to be one of the the top 3 WRs in the SEC going into next year.

    Ole Miss is losing three starters from this past 7-6 season. Considering LSU’s attrition, I think Alabama’s the clear-cut pick for #1 in the west, and then Ole Miss, LSU, and aggie in the running for second place. IMO the Rebels look like they’re in great shape to win the west, and LaQuan has a great chance to be a big part of that. Watch out for that defense if they can get Robert Nkemdiche in the lineup early.

    No problem, foreverlsu.
