Laquon Treadwell of Crete-Monee High named the top five schools he is still considering.
Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Michigan, Michigan State and Ole Miss remain the schools Treadwell is still considering to attend.
“I am very comfortable with them and I really like the coaching staffs,” Treadwell said of narrowing his list. “I like where they are going with the programs and so that’s why they made my top five.”
Morgan Hearing From Many
Top 2014 linebacker Nyles Morgan also of Crete-Monee picked up offers from Oklahoma and Ole Miss Friday.
“I am not picking favorites yet,” Morgan said. “I am just going to games that are close by this year, and I am going to try and visit some schools that are farther away into my senior year.
“I’ve got a long ways to go until deciding.”
With recruiting comes plenty of hand written letters, but has one stood out to Morgan?
“That’s a hard one, because I get a lot of hand written letters from Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan State, Alabama surprisingly that one got me, and Georgia,” Morgan said.
Morgan will visit Vanderbilt unofficially Saturday.
Rushing Offered Preferred Spot
Although Glenbrook North running back Grant Rushing has yet to pick up his first offer, his senior season has caused quite a buzz.
“From Wisconsin I have a preferred walk on spot which I found out Thursday,” Rushing said. “And I’m so honored about that.”
One thing is for sure, wherever Rushing choses to play his college ball — he has several goals in mind.
“What I’ll bring to a college team is my work ethic,” Rushing said. “Being able to play college football is a dream of mine and I’ll never stop working on getting better.”
New Offers Abound
Simeon 2013 defensive end Devante Lee picked up his first offer.
“Coach White from San Diego State just called me Saturday and that’s how I found out they offered me,” Lee said.
Lee is also hearing from Kansas, who just offered his Wolverines teammate, offensive lineman Kendall Moore.
Another Chicago area senior, Bolingbrook running back Omar Stover picked up an offer from Wyoming.
“I’m very excited and happy my hard work is paying off,” Stover said. “I like that Wyoming is a division one school, a great program, and I am excited to have an offer from them.”
Ole Miss also offered 2014 Bolingbrook defensive back Parrker Westphal and De La Salle offensive lineman Jamarco Jones.
