Judging by his Twitter response, Crete-Monee (Ill.) receiver Laquon Treadwell was excited at the prospect of having an Oklahoma State coach in the stands for his game Friday night.
“Oklahoma State will be at the game this Friday #COWBOYS!!!,” he tweeted early in the week.
Treadwell, rated as the No. 1 senior receiver prospect in the country, had a pair of touchdown catches (10 and 46 yards) and threw a 61-yard TD in Crete-Monee's 37-6 win over Kankakee to improve to 5-0 on the year.
As of now, OSU is one of three programs on Treadwell's list of official visits.
“I will be taking official visits to Ole Miss, Oklahoma, and Oklahoma State,” Treadwell told the Chicago Sun-Times last week. “I am just not sure when yet.
“The others that I am considering are Florida, LSU, Michigan State and Illinois.”
The 6-foot-3, 200-pound receiver recently made an unofficial visit to Michigan and tweeted last week that he has been in contact with Texas as well.
GUNDY WATCHES BROKEN ARROW WITHOUT THOMAS
With a Saturday off, the OSU coaching staff was busy on the recruiting trail this week, putting eyes on as many players as possible. Head coach Mike Gundy was at Broken Arrow, which is loaded with Division I prospects in both the 2013 and 2014 classes.
Gundy, however, did not get to see Tiger running back Devon Thomas, a junior who has yet to play this season because of an off-the-field issue.
Thomas, who rushed for 1,775 yards and 22 touchdowns on just 180 carries as a sophomore, is one of three in-state players in the 2014 recruiting class with an offer from the Cowboys.
ROSS COMES UP BIG FOR TYLER
In a showdown of powerhouse programs, Oklahoma State receiver commit Fred Ross of John Tyler High in Tyler, Texas, produced a couple of touchdowns in a 35-31 victory over Mesquite (Texas) Horn.
Ross, 6-foot-1, 200 pounds, put the game's first points on the board with a 64-yard touchdown run, and later grabbed a 27-yard scoring pass.
