After a 45-7 win over Glenbard South moved Crete-Monee to 4-0, top senior wide receiver Laquon Treadwell hopped in a car and drove eight hours to watch host Ole Miss take on Texas.
“It was worth it,” Treadwell said. “My favorite part of the visit was just watching the game and how live the crowd was.”
And although the game was really all Treadwell got to see because of the long drive to Mississippi, he seemed to come away with a positive vibe.
“The visit was great,” Treadwell said. “I loved the offense the most.
‘‘We really just hung out, and we went to the Grove.”
Treadwell has also set a few of his official visits.
“I will be taking official visits to Ole Miss, Oklahoma, and Oklahoma State,” Treadwell said. “I am just not sure when yet.”
That leaves two remaining official visits for Treadwell to reach the max number. So which schools are competing for the last two visits?
“The others that I am considering are Florida, LSU, Michigan State and Illinois,” Treadwell said.
Hinsdale Central junior wide receiver Ian Bunting was one of many Chicago-area visitors to Michigan State for Saturday’s game against Notre Dame.
“I got there in time to watch the pump-up video that the team watched before the game,” Bunting said. “I listened to some of the coaches speak, and then headed to the field for pre-game.”
And his most memorable part of the trip was pretty clear.
“My favorite part of the visit was probably the game day atmosphere,” Bunting said. “It felt like the whole town was tailgating and there’s definitely a lot of Michigan State support out there.”
Even though the Irish knocked off the Spartans, 20-3, plenty of recruits were impressed, including Oak Park-River Forest junior defensive end Nile Sykes.
“The Michigan State game was awesome,” Sykes said. “Unfortunately they lost, but both teams really impressed me. Especially Notre Dame’s defensive line and Manti Te’o.”
Other visitors included Crete-Monee junior linebacker Nyles Morgan, Stevenson junior defensive back Matt Morrissey and Prairie Ridge junior offensive lineman Shane Evans.
