Farrell: Could Jacob Cowing Put up Bigger Numbers than Jordan Addison?
Comparisons are inevitable in all aspects of sports and in college football it’s no different. But now with the transfer portal, it’s even more common.
In the PAC 12, no one can touch USC transfer Jordan Addison, right? Well.
Jordan Addison, USC vs. Jacob Cowing, Arizona
What if I told you that Cowing, a 5-11, 170 pound transfer receiver from UTEP could put up better numbers than Addison at USC? You’d think I was crazy right? The key is word is could here and it’s very unlikely to happen but everyone knows of the Biletnikoff winner Addison and his 100 catches for 1,593 yards and 17 scores last season at Pitt but no one know enough about Cowing.
He’s not much smaller than Addison, he had 69 catches last season for 1,354 yards and 7 scores last season for UTEP with a quarterback named Gavin Hardison on a very average team in Conference USA. Now Addison will have Caleb Williams at USC after having Kenny Pickett at Pitt so he has a huge advantage there but Arizona transfer QB Jayden de Laura showed some good things at Washington State and Cowing should be his main target. Addison has first round potential and should be a star at USC but Cowing will get a ton of targets and touches as Arizona looks to rebuild.
