Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze says Laquon Treadwell is the best wide receiver he’s ever coached
“Hit the Quan” by iHeart Memphis has been a popular song at football stadiums across the country, but when the song plays at Ole Miss’ Vaught-Hemingway Stadium, it has an additional meaning.
The music means Ole Miss wide receiver Laquon Treadwell has made a play, most likely a touchdown — and this season, that has become the norm in Oxford, Miss.
“He’s the best I’ve ever coached,” coach Hugh Freeze told reporters Monday. “I believe that.”
Treadwell leads the SEC in receiving yards (1,060) and receptions (72) while placing third in receiving touchdowns (8).
He’s six receptions and 76 receiving yards away from breaking single-season school records, and a 100-yard game from setting that mark as well.
Freeze said the best three he’s coached are Treadwell, Donte Moncrief and Mike Wallace, but that Treadwell has the edge.
“Donte was really good,” Freeze said. “Mike Wallace was good. Laquon is probably the most complete. Donte was close. If Donte had stayed his senior year, it would probably be tit for tat with those two. But I’d say (Treadwell) is probably the most talented that I’ve coached.”
