Laquon Treadwell is just what the doctor ordered for Ohio State.
The Buckeyes, who will be running a spread offense under new coach Urban Meyer, will be strong with the run but also need play-making wide receivers to make their offense whole. That’s where Treadwell comes in.
A 6-foot-3, 183-pound receiver from Crete, IL, about 40 miles south of Chicago, Treadwell is undecided about his college future. The four-star player will be on campus for the Class of 2013 and has a laundry list of suitors, including the Buckeyes.
But he also has high-powered programs like Oklahoma, Alabama and Notre Dame hot on his heels. According to Rivals.com, he has offers from nearly the entire SEC as well as USC and a lot of schools in between.
It’s clear that Treadwell has deep interest in Ohio State, even if he won’t let on if OSU is the leader in his personal clubhouse. However, he suggested being star-struck at one point over the head Buckeye.
“The best part was meeting coach Meyer,” Treadwell told Eleven Warriors. “It was an awesome experience.” .....
