As this offseason FINALLY seems to be coming to a close, USC football's Jordan Addison and Andrew Vorhees picked up more Preseason All-America selections on Wednesday--these ones by CBS Sports/247Sports. Both were elected to the First-Team. This was certainly not their first time receiving these honors this offseason by notable selectors.
They should be selected, too. Addison won the Biletnikoff last year for a reason. Once Drake London went down in Game 8, he was the best receiver in the country and rightfully took home the award. Now, he's only going to continue building off of that in a better offense with much better coaching in Lincoln Riley.
Addison is coming off of a 100-catch season, where he put up 1,593 receiving yards and 17 receiving touchdowns. Isaac Trotter, who wrote this Preseason All-America article, credits these massive numbers to "his precise route-running and electric speed in the open field."
Both USC football's Jordan Addison and Andrew Vorhees were obvious Preseason All-America selections.
Andrew Vorhees and Jordan Addison are arguably the two best players on USC football's roster. One could potentially swap one of them out with Caleb Williams, but that's about it. And Williams is going to be very protected this season. Vorhees only gave up one sack all season last year even though he was constantly being forced to move back and forth from the left guard to left tackle spot.
He was the only lineman in all of football to have both a 90+ pass-blocking and 90+ run-blocking grade last year (PFF), and was recently ranked by PFF as the No. 1 Interior Offensive Lineman in the game.
These two provide their Quarterback with the support he needs to succeed--one in the receiving game and the other in the trenches. If they, and Williams perform up to their potential, all three have the capabilities to be Preseason All-Americans by the end of the season.
