Ole Miss sophomore WR Laquon Treadwell caught five passes for 53 yards in Saturday's victory over No. 14 Texas A&M.
No other Ole Miss receiver had more than two receptions. The 6-foot-2, 229-pound Treadwell, graded by Rivals as the No. 10 overall player in the 2013 class, has caught four balls or more in every game this season. ESPN's Steve Muench wrote last week that Treadwell has the same upside as Bears' WR Alshon Jeffery coming out of South Carolina in 2012: "He uses his frame to shield defenders, is tough to tackle after the catch and is an above-average blocker. While he doesn't have elite top-end speed or elusiveness, he is fast enough to stretch the field and is an instinctive open-field runner who can make the first defender miss." Oct 13 - 8:27 PM

Ole Miss sophomore WR Laquon Treadwell has the same upside as Bears' WR Alshon Jeffery coming out of South Carolina in 2012, writes ESPN's Steve Muench.

"Treadwell is a big-bodied receiver who has an edge to his game and knows how to throw his weight around," Muench wrote. "He uses his frame to shield defenders, is tough to tackle after the catch and is an above-average blocker. While he doesn't have elite top-end speed or elusiveness, he is fast enough to stretch the field and is an instinctive open-field runner who can make the first defender miss." The 6-foot-2, 229-pound Treadwell was graded by Rivals as the No. 10 overall player in the 2013 class. "Treadwell has the big hands and length to make contested catches in the red zone and downfield, but he can take his eyes off the ball and drop a pass he should catch, so there's room for improvement when it comes to his ball skills," Muench wrote.

Ole Miss sophomore WR Laquon Treadwell caught five passes for 55 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 23-17 upset victory over No. 3 Alabama.

At 5-0, Ole Miss is suddenly in the driver's seat for a potential bid in college football's first playoff. Their best wide receiver, Treadwell, has a big frame (6-foot-2, 229 pounds) and soft hands. He isn't a burner, but Treadwell is a smooth athlete who is skilled in the technical aspects of his craft such as separating from defensive backs with fakes in the middle of his route trees. Bo Wallace isn't afraid to throw the ball to Treadwell in coverage. Generally, Treadwell is going to come down with the ball.

NFL.com's Bucky Brooks said that Ole Miss sophomore WR Laquon Treadwell had the tools to become a No. 1 receiver at the NFL level.

Treadwell had a 63-yard touchdown catch and a 17-yarder against Memphis on Saturday. NFL.com's Bucky Brooks said to, "Keep an eye on the Ole Miss pass catcher because he has all of the tools to blossom into a No. 1 receiver at the next level." Brooks praised Treadwell's big frame (6'2", 229 pounds) and soft hands. Treadwell might not wow with eye-popping speed, but Brooks thinks that the sophomore makes up for any speed issues because he is a "fluid athlete capable of separating from defenders with subtle dekes and fakes at the top of routes."

Ole Miss sophomore WR Laquon Treadwell caught five passes for 123 yards and two touchdowns over the weekend against Memphis.

Bo Wallace's confidence in Treadwell is apparent in his willingness to toss the ball to him in coverage and allow the talented receiver to beat defenders at the catch point. Treadwell's 63-yard touchdown in the first kicked off the game's scoring, and his 17-yard scoring grab in the fourth quarter cemented the final score of 24-3. Treadwell reportedly added 15 pounds of muscle this offseason, which will come in handy against SEC defenders.

Ole Miss sophomore WR Laquon Treadwell caught seven passes for 105 yards and a touchdown in the school's 35-13 win over Boise State.

Treadwell reportedly added 15 pounds of muscle this offseason and it showed in his game. Bo Wallace frequently allowed Treadwell to get downfield against man coverage, lob it up and allow his receiver to win at the catch point. He is not draft eligible, but Treadwell is a name to watch on a talented Ole Miss team.

Ole Miss HC Hugh Freeze said sophomore WR Laquon Treadwell added 15 lbs of muscle during the offseason.

This would put Treadwell around 6'2/230 lbs, which is massive for a receiver. Many draft evaluators would place Treadwell near the top of their rankings if he were eligible for the 2015 draft. Ole Miss is seemingly on the incline as a program, and Treadwell could be the focal point of their offense this season.

Ole Miss freshman Laquon Treadwell was held to two catches for 15 yards in Saturday's 59-14 victory over Idaho.

The Rebels' stud freshman wasn't needed much in the blowout, and Treadwell posted his worst statistical game of his young career. An NFL scout said earlier this month that Treadwell is the top receiver in college football. He and Donte Moncrief pose matchup nightmares for opposing secondaries.

One NFL scout told CBS Sports' Dane Brugler that Ole Miss freshman Laquon Treadwell is the top WR in college football.

It is quite a statement, as Treadwell is only six games into his collegiate career, registering 32 catches for 327 yards and two touchdowns. The star freshman does play opposite another talented target in Donte Moncrief, and Treadwell is actually outplaying the junior. Ole Miss could become a pro factory with their base of young talent.

Ole Miss will force players that attended a theater school play based on the murder of University of Wyoming student Matthew Shepard to attend an "educational dialogue session."

About 100 students, including 25 freshman football players, attended a performance of "The Laramie Project" on Tuesday night as part of a class requirement. Some audience members used homophobic slurs and heckled the actors. The football players -- who have not yet been identified -- in attendance were told to apologize after the play for their actions, which included, "taking pictures of cast members while making fun of them, talking on their cell phones, hollering at the females in the cast and talking to other audience members during the acts," according to the performance report. Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze has not yet announced additional punishments or suspensions.

Ole Miss freshman WR Laquon Treadwell caught nine passes for 82 yards in his collegiate debut on Thursday against Vanderbilt.

The five-star receiver went about substantiating recruiting analysts' scouting reports quickly, proving to be quarterback Bo Wallace's favorite target in his first game. The 6-foot-3, 198-pounder from Illinois was the top wide receiver recruit in the country when he committed to the Rebels in January. If there was one complaint about Treadwell's performance, it's that he manufactured zero explosive plays (his long reception went 17 yards). We expect to see more game-changing plays out of the precocious freshman as the season progresses.

Five-star WR recruit Laquon Treadwell has committed to Ole Miss.

Treadwell, listed at 6-foot-3, 198, played high school football in Crete, Illinois and is the top wide receiver recruit in the country. Rivals ranks him as the No. 10 overall player in the 2013 class. As a high school senior, Treadwell amassed 83 receptions for 1,450 yards and 23 all-purpose touchdowns as Crete-Monee won the Class 6A state title in Illinois.
