Rated by Rivals.com as the No. 1 receiver prospect in the nation, Treadwell announced on Twitter that he won't visit any other schools until after his season is over, now that the state playoffs have begun. He was unable to visit Michigan earlier this month because of a death in the family.

He still plans to make trips to OSU, Oklahoma, Michigan, Michigan State and Mississippi.


Luke Del Rio's Valor Christian squad has been rolling through competition in Colorado with ease lately, and the quarterback who is committed to Oklahoma State is making the most of his rare opportunities to throw the ball.

Del Rio, the only quarterback commit in OSU's 2013 class, has thrown the ball just 17 times in the last two games, completing 13 of them in combined wins of 121-14 over Palmer and Rock Canyon.

For the year, Del Rio is 108-of-158 (68.4 pct.) for 1,398 yards with 16 touchdowns and three interceptions.
