No. 2 player that can will USC football to the College Football Playoff: Jordan Addison

If Vorhees can protect the quarterback's blindside, don't be surprised at all if new USC Football WR1 Jordan Addison balls out again this season. He's going to ball out either way; this is the same guy who had 100 catches for 1,593 receiving yards and 17 receiving touchdowns last year as just a sophomore.

He won the 2021 Biletnikoff with PITT. Now imagine what he can do with LINCOLN RILEY scheming up plays for him. Addison has both ridiculous short-range quickness AND long-range burners.

Winning the award of the best college receiver last season; he's proven that his ceiling is to continue literally being the No. 1 player at his position in CFB. Last year, Addison's Pitt team won the ACC with him as the second-best player (beind only QB Kenny Pickett).

He is likely to be the second-best player on this team too, with a QB at the same caliber Addison had throwing him the rock last year.

If USC--a much better program than Pitt--can replicate that success, they absolutely do have playoff potential. Addison is going to be a massive part of the offense, and no coach wouldn't love to hear that.
