Pitt sophomore wide receiver Jordan Addison was named a finalist for The Biletnikoff Award which is awarded to the nation’s top receiver.
Addison has had a breakout year in his sophomore campaign with 74 catches for 1,272 receiving yards and 15 receiving touchdowns. Most recently in Saturday’s matchup against Virginia, he played a crucial role in the team’s Coastal Division clinching victory as he had over 200 receiving yards and four touchdowns on the day.
How good as Addison been this season?
The sophomore from Maryland leads the country with 15 touchdown receptions and his 1,272 receiving yards is first among all Power Five receivers. According to Pro Football Focus, Addison leads the country with 18 catches of 20+ yards.
Addison is joined by Jameson Williams of Alabama, and Purdue’s David Bell as finalists. He is the third Pitt player to be named a Biletnikoff finalist, joining Larry Fitzgerald and Antonio Bryant and would be the first Panther receiver to win the award since Fitzgerald in 2003.
The winner of this award will be announced on ESPN’s College Football Awards Show on December 9.
