Report: Texas Hosting Jordan Addison On Official Visit

Published

on

The team of Jordan Addison and Brenan Marion could be reuniting.

Per Gerry Hamilton of On3 Sports, the 2021 Biletnikoff winner has arrived in Austin, Texas for an official visit with the Texas Longhorns. This is the first official visit for Addison since he entered the NCAA Transfer Portal.

Addison has been vocal about the close relationship he developed last season with Marion and was disappointed after he left to take a position on the Longhorns coaching staff. Last season with Marion and Heisman Trophy finalist quarterback Kenny Pickett, Addison caught 100 passes for 1593 yards and 17 touchdown receptions.

It’s been reported that Addison had concerns returning to Pitt due to Mark Whipple leaving, Pickett graduating and his role in Frank Cignetti’s new offense. Would he receive the same number of targets as he received in his first two seasons at Pitt?

Some of those questions can also be asked when looking at the Texas situation.

*Longhorns star wide receiver Xavier Worthy is returning and is viewed as a future 1st round pick. Last season, Worthy caught 62 passes for 981 yards and 12 touchdowns.

*In the off-season, Texas added wide receivers Isaiah Neyor (Wyoming) and Agiye Hall (Alabama) through the transfer portal.

*Running back Bijan Robinson returns and will be the focal point of the offense and is viewed as an early Heisman Trophy candidate. Last season, Robinson rushed for over 1,000 yards, scored 15 touchdowns and averaged 5.8 yards/carry.

*At the most important position, Texas is likely to go with highly touted 5-star freshman quarterback Quinn Ewers. Although he has tons of potential and is viewed as a future star, he still is a true freshman.

This is the first of a few official visits that Addison is expected to make. Other stops could include USC, who is viewed as the favorite to land him, along with Alabama and Tennessee.

So this guy is going to leave a team any time his coaches change? Seems pretty immature.

Bye bye!

more like he fears the offense will change (especially with Pickett no longer there to bail them out). He would be in the NFL if not for their idiotic rule so he’s going somewhere he feels will help prepare him for the NFL better than his prior situation. Is it right? That is still to be determined but can’t fault him (other than the timing and the way he left) for working the system the way it’s currently set up. The wild west of free agency and constant transfers is a joke.

Slow news day
Pitt legend, Larry Fitzgerald, left after two years. Addison won’t be placed on that pedestal because of the botched exit. We mourned Fitz’ loss. It’s time to move on.
