Both USC Football WR Jordan Addison and USC Football OG/OT Andrew Vorhees have been named Preseason First-Team All-Americans by the Walter Camp Football Foundation. Neither of these should be surprises.
Addison won the Biletnikoff award last season. The only receiver better than him last year was SC's own Drake London (who didn't win the Biletnikoff after getting hurt and out for the year in Game 8), and he just got drafted to the NFL. Out of the returning receivers, though, there is nobody better than Addison.
Addison just racked up 100 catches for 1,593 receiving yards and 17 touchdown catches. He's an elite possession receiver AND terrifying deep threat all in one. He was a Consensus All-American in an offense nowhere near the level of a Lincoln Riley offense in 2021. Now imagine what he has in store for 2022.
Jordan Addison wasn't a surprise to be named Preseason First Team All-American, and Andrew Vorhees shouldn't be either.
It's not just USC Football's Jordan Addison who is a proven star at his position, but Andrew Vorhees too. Not only is Vorhees coming off of a second straight strong year, but he was spectacular last season despite being asked of far more than he should have been asked of.
Vorhees had to rotate between left guard and left tackle last season. Still, he was the only O-Lineman in the entire country to have both a 90+ run-blocking grade and 90+ pass-blocking grade. Only allowing one sack all year despite having to go back and forth at both spots, Vorhees proved not only dominance but versatility as well.
Both players most certainly have a shot to be Consensus All-Americans in 2022. Addison obviously already has, and Vorhees' name is really starting to rightfully get out there.
These two, Caleb Williams, and Travis Dye are the cornerstones of this offense, and it's time to take advantage of a sixth year of eligibility for the veteran, franchise LG/LT.
