Jordan Addison to Commits to USC

Published

on

After reports that former Pitt star Jordan Addison was deciding between USC and Texas, the Biletnikoff Award winner has spoken for the first time and has made his much anticipated decision.

After many rumors and speculation, Addison is heading to Lincoln Riley and USC, as was talked about from the start.

Texas made a push for Addison, with former Pitt wide receivers coach Brennan Marion leading the way and Longhorns’ stars Quin Ewers and Bijan Robinson recruiting, but USC’s NIL allure was too much to pass up in the end.

Former Oklahoma quarterback Caleb Williams headlines a USC offense that features a wide receiving corps of fellow Oklahoma transfer Mario Williams, top 2022 commit C.J. Williams, Colorado transfer Brenden Rice, Washington transfer Terrell Bynum and Tahj Washington and Gary Bryant Jr.

With a first-time eligibility waiver, Addison will likely spend just one season at either USC before declaring for the 2023 NFL — where he’s expected to be one of the first wide receivers selected.

Addison caught 100 balls for 1,593 yards and 17 touchdowns in 2021, providing Kenny Pickett with a favorite target, and now Pickett and Addison are both gone entering the 2022 season. After two seasons at Pitt, he finished his Pitt career with 160 catches for 2,259 yards and 21 touchdowns in just 24 games.

Pitt’s 2022 wide receiving corps still features a duo of Jared Wayne and Konata Mumpfield and intriguing depth in Jaden Bradley, Jaylon Barden, Addison Copeland, Che Nwabuko and Myles Alston — and Louisiana Tech transfer Bub Means if he’s cleared to play in 2022.

Him leaving would have sucked regardless but it’s how he went about it that blows my mind. Losing Pickett, Whipple, and Marion in January would have been the perfect time to go but he screwed around and waited. Now his legacy here is only going to be about this.

Wow. And just like that he went from a legend to one of the most hated paid professional in Pittsburgh sports history.

Is it possible to see who is giving negative reviews on everyone’s post.
Please go to the PSU site! You guys are used to negativity.

Time to officially say goodbye. Please, no weekly or daily updates. No game reports from USC. All attention to PITT football. H2P!

I really hope the NCAA investigates tampering from Riley, LMAO!!!
Well, Addison will NEVER be welcomed back in Pittsburgh, and 10-20 years from now he will regret it. He could have been a legend just like Larry, Donald, Marino, Dorsett, etc.
H2P Forever!

Don’t panic. That offensive line with this group of receivers with something to prove and a more balanced attack, as long as this team stays close together like they are, the only thing that could stop them would be the ACC refs. I believe in this team! Don’t underestimate the importance of leadership such as Alexandre. On paper, replacing a Heisman finalist QB, offensive Coordinator, WR coach, and arguably the best WR in the nation spells 8-4. But I just believe in this team. This just means there’s more balls to go around to the others.

I have nothing but love for Addison. I really enjoyed watching him play for 2 years. He did nothing wrong. Whoever started this NIL BS is to blame.
College football will never be the same and unless the NCAA figures out a way to get this under control it will be 1/10 the product it was before NIL.

What a shame. This NIL nonsense has ruined college football. Good riddence to all you players with no loyalty. Addison should pay Pitt back for his scholarship.

Crap NCAA rule he has to play a 3rd Year in NCAA. Where does he go in the April 2022 NFL Draft as the Blietnekoff recipient? On Paper better than the guys that go #16 and #18, perhaps some debate whether better than #8, #10, #11, #12. Otherwise might go to Los Angeles and USC and find he is the Punt/Kick Return Specialist but the 3rd best receiver on the roster. If it was not about NIL $$$ than go to Kentucky or Alabama and have the highly touted SEC QBs (including the returning Heisman) throw to him. Smart to… Read more »
