After a sophomore season learning the ropes as a sixth-man for Del Oro, Andre Treadwell became the main man as a junior.
A sharpshooter, with a knack for scoring in bunches, Treadwell has now become a top player in his area. The 6-foot-3 guard defined his skill-set during a recent phone interview with Prep Hoops.
“I can shoot it from pretty deep, and that makes is harder for defenders to guard me, because they have to come out farther, and it creates space and opens the court for everyone else,” said Treadwell.
He’s active on the offensive glass, and says his length and athleticism helps him to guard the one through four spots on defense.
This past season at Del Oro, Treadwell says he made a huge leap from his sophomore year, when he was a sixth-man, to his junior year, when he was the go-to guy.
“This year, I led the team in scoring, my main role on this team was putting the ball in the hoop and getting points for our team,” he said. “When we needed a big shot, I would have a play drawn up for me. I would say I was the go-to guy.”
Now, he’s spending his spring and summer playing with Idaho Hoop Dreams 17U; they’ve already been to Portland and Seattle this spring, and will be back in Portland soon.
“A goal for me is to get on the map for recruitment. I’m already kind of on the map, but I’m looking to get on the bigger map, with more coaches,” said Treadwell.
He’s had coaches email and text, but he’s looking to make bigger impact this summer. He mentioned Fresno State, Pepperdine, Eastern Washington, Montana, Pacific, George Fox and St. Mary’s as schools that have reached out to him.
“I want to put myself out there even more and show those coaches what I’m capable of doing,” said Treadwell. “I just got to keep working and preparing myself, and offers will come”
