Nasir Addison, 3-star ATH out of New Jersey, reveals SEC commitment
Nasir Addison was previously committed to Maryland via the 2023 recruiting class. After reopening his recruitment early in July, he is now on his way to the SEC.
On Saturday, Addison revealed his commitment to Kentucky during an Instagram live broadcast. He committed to the Wildcats over a host of offers, including Michigan State, Maryland and Florida State.

Listed at 6-foot-2 and 181 lbs., Addison is rated as a 3-star wide receiver by the 247 Sports Composite Rankings. He’s also the No. 21 prospect out of the state of New Jersey for the cycle.
Despite being rated as a receiver, Justin Rowland with Cats Illustrated reports that Kentucky views Addison as a defensive back at the next level. It is not immediately clear if that means the Wildcats plan on slotting Addison at corner or safety.
Addison becomes the 13th commitment for Kentucky in the 2023 recruiting class. That group currently ranks 43rd nationally by the team recruiting rankings.
