Jordan Addison transferring to USC
Former Pittsburgh wide receiver Jordan Addison is transferring to USC, he announced Thursday.
Addison - who won the Biletnikoff Award as the nation's top receiver last year - entered the portal earlier this month after spending the previous two seasons with the Panthers.
USC was one of Addison's three finalists along with Alabama and Texas, though the standout pass-catcher reportedly removed the Crimson Tide from his list this week.
Addison put on a show in his second year at Pitt in 2021, racking up 100 catches for 1,593 yards and 17 touchdowns. He previously caught 60 passes, 666 yards, and four scores as a freshman.
After hiring former Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley, USC added several high-profile players this year, including standout quarterback Caleb Williams. Addison will join a dynamic wide receiver depth chart that recently added Mario Williams - a transfer from Oklahoma - and Brenden Rice - the son of NFL legend Jerry Rice who began his career at Colorado.
