Ole Miss Rebels five-star recruit Laquon Treadwell is one of the highly touted members of Hugh Freeze’s impressive 2013 recruiting class. Freeze has been able to land a handful of five-star recruits, despite not having the national contender status of many of the SEC’s top teams and now people are beginning to wonder how they have had such success in their recruiting department, especially after Treadwell posted a series of photos.

Treadwell posted some photos that included being surrounded by lovely women and holding $100 bills during his recruiting trip at Ole Miss. Of course, questions of recruiting violations.

The five-star receiver immediately deleted the photos, but it was too late. Here is the image:

Posting a picture of money does not violate any rules and it does not mean that Treadwell was involved in any recruiting violations, but it was certainly a bone-headed move and something that he should have thought about before posting it for the world to see.

Hopefully for the Rebels, the coaching staff will be able to talk some sense in to Treadwell and prevent anything like this from happening again.

It is okay to be a kid and have fun, especially in college, but when you raise suspicion about your university things can get sticky.

What do you think of the photo Treadwell posted? Was it just a bone-headed, immature mistake or is it something that should raise some red flags about the recent success of Ole Miss recruiting?
