Five-star WR Laquon Treadwell, who committed to Ole Miss on Jan. 17, was in Oxford last weekend for a tour of the Rebels’ football facilities. The next time he finds himself on campus, Treadwell might have to drop by the school’s compliance office.
Treadwell posted a since-deleted photo to his Twitter account of what we presume are his hands atop a stack of $100 bills. Naturally, it gave plenty of Ole Miss critics ammunition in their suspicion of how Hugh Freeze has been able to reel in such a great recruiting class.
Except as Jason Kirk points out, it’s just a picture of a young man holding money — along the same lines of a similar picture that Johnny Manziel posed for in early January.
Nonetheless, it’s a not-so-smart move on Treadwell’s part. The last thing he wants is for a nickname like “Laquon Paidwell” (H/T sportingglobe) following him to college.
