The brilliant sophomore season of Pitt wide receiver Jordan Addison has been recognized on a national level.
Today, Addison was named as a semifinalist for the Biletnikoff Award, which is given to college football’s most outstanding FBS receiver at any position.
In 10 games, Addison has 60 catches for 1,070 yards (17.8 yards/catch) and 11 touchdowns. Those 11 touchdowns are the most by a Pitt wide receiver since Larry Fitzgerald caught 22 in 2003.
Addison is averaging 107 yards per game, which ranks 9th in the country. His 12 total touchdowns are 25th most in the country, regardless of position.
The other semifinalists are David Bell (Purdue), Jahan Dotson (Penn State), Josh Downs (North Carolina), Drake London (USC), Chris Olave (Ohio State), A.T. Perry (Wake Forest), Jerreth Sterns (Western Kentucky), Deven Thompkins (Utah State) and Jameson Williams (Alabama).
The three finalists will be announced on November 23 and the winner on December 9, during the College Football Awards Show.
