While Jordan Addison’s decision between USC and Texas has been expected for a while, with his USC relationship dating back prior to even entering the transfer portal, a decision is reportedly coming soon.
According to college football insider Jordan Schultz, Addison has narrowed his option down to just USC and Texas and a decision is coming soon.
Addison has made official visits to both Texas and USC, and with the NIL spending capabilities both schools have at their fingertips from wealthy donors and collectives, he’ll be handsomely compensated in 2022 no matter where he goes. With reports of a lucrative NIL package already in place at USC, it’s hard to believe that he’s not headed to SoCal.
With a first-time eligibility waiver, Addison will likely spend just one season at either USC or Texas 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.
