Three schools will receive official visits from Crete-Monee wide receiver Laquon Treadwell.
So far, Missouri, Ole Miss and Oklahoma are on his schedule — but plenty remain interested.
“Michigan, Oklahoma, and Notre Dame came by the school this week,” Treadwell said. “Coach Hecklinski from Michigan said he is going to recruit me hard for the rest of the way out, and take no days off.
‘‘Notre Dame just wants to see if I can get out and visit a game, maybe take an official.”
Treadwell hasn’t decided on his last two visits — but he knows the record of a team this season won’t impact his decision.
“I know what I can do to help a team and that is what I have to look at,” Treadwell said. “I have to look at what I can do to help, not where they stand now.”
Stover on fire
Bolingbrook senior running back Omar Stover has heard from Purdue, Iowa and Missouri for quite some time, and several others have entered the picture recently.
“I have been in contact with Ole Miss and Wyoming,” Stover said. “It seems as they both have high interest in me and are looking to offer me in the near future.”
Stover has racked up 11 touchdowns and over 700 yards this season.
“I wasn’t expecting to hear from them at all,” Stover said. “Hearing from Ole Miss was a huge shock, but a great one and so was Wyoming.”
Bailey back at Morgan Park
Defensive end Khairi Bailey started off the year at Julian but made the move back to Morgan Park in order to be eligible to play this season.
“It feels good to be back on the field,” Bailey said. “I have been waiting to play my senior year and I finally can, so I am just happy to be on the field and help my team win.”
Not only is he back on the field, Bailey’s recruitment is as hot as ever.
“Arizona State, Western Michigan, Northern Illinois, and Western Kentucky are all schools I plan on visiting before I decide,” Bailey said. “My mom and dad haven’t really seen all the schools that I am interested in, so I want them to visit them with me.”
Big weekend in Champaign
Saturday brought scores of top prospects to Champaign to see Illinois take on Penn State, including Marist junior tight end Nic Weishar who came away with a positive reaction.
“One thing that I liked was with Illinois tight ends, I saw that they are spread out wide often, making them a very versatile position,’’ Weishar said.
Sophomore St. Charles East lineman Brennan Bosch also attended Saturday’s game, and has an offer from the Illini.
“I like how they are a balanced offense because that’s how my team is,” Bosch said. “So it would be easier to go from a balanced offense to another balanced offense than go to a run- or pass-heavy offense.”
