Jordan Addison, elite WR transfer from Pitt, announces destination
Jordan Addison, arguably the best wide receiver in the transfer portal this offseason, has announced his new team.
The former Pittsburgh star, who was the subject of a rant about tampering from his former head coach Pat Narduzzi, has committed to Southern Cal. The Biletnikoff Award winner, who reportedly weighed Texas as a possibility, is the latest high-profile transfer for Lincoln Riley and the Trojans. Addison entered the transfer portal about 2 and a half weeks ago.
Addison made 100 catches for 1,593 yards and 17 touchdowns with Pitt in 2021, and Addison is expected to go early in the 2023 NFL Draft.
Addison beat out NFL Draft picks Jameson Williams from Alabama and David Bell (Purdue) for the Biletnikoff Award. If Addison stayed at Pitt, he would be playing with a new quarterback and offensive coordinator after the departures of QB Kenny Pickett (NFL Draft) and offensive coordinator Mark Whipple (Nebraska). Ironically, the new Pitt QB is a former USC quarterback in Kedon Slovis.
Whether Addison’s tampering chargers are real, one thing is clear is that a name, image and likeness deal is in the works for Addison, as he reaches Southern California. He will be an interesting prospect to watch this season.
