Laquon Treadwell (Crete, Ill./Crete-Monee) is one of the top 2013 wide receivers in the country. He boasts offers from Alabama, Auburn, Oklahoma and Michigan, among others. For many of the schools looking at him, he has met the coaching staff, met the players and been to games, but what he's really looking forward to now is seeing spring practices.
"It's a big factor," Treadwell said. "You can learn a lot from practice. If practice isn't really intense and they don't push themselves then that's probably not the school I want to go to."
Even though Treadwell already has visited Ann Arbor four times, he will make his fifth visit during the first week in April to see a spring practice.
During that week (which is his spring break) he also will take visits and view practices at Michigan State, Illinois and Notre Dame, all of whom also have extended offers to the 6-foot-2, 190-pound receiver.
