Jordan Addison has had some offseason for USC football. After being a Consensus All-American and winning the Biletnikoff in 2021, he was bound to appear on tons and tons of watch lists and Preseason All-America teams. That's exactly what he's done, too, and he can't seem to stop. The season's about to start and he's still making headlines.
This time, it's Addison being named to the First-Team squad on 'USA TODAY Sports college football preseason All-America team for 2022.' Addison already was an 100 catch wideout last year in a season where he racked up 1,593 receiving yards and snagged 17 receiving touchdowns.
Now, he gets to play for the top offensive coach in the country, giving him the chance to put up even better numbers. He gets to catch passes from another elite QB in Caleb Williams--one that he already has a connection with through growing up in the same area together.
Paul Myerberg of USA Today said "Addison should pick up where he left off at Pittsburgh as new Southern California quarterback Caleb Williams' favorite target."
And Jordan Addison most certainly will pick up right where he left off at Pittsburgh as new USC football QB Williams' go-to guy.
The best part about it is that USC football has other weapons that opposing defenses will have to pay attention to other than Jordan Addison. So much attention will also be on Mario Williams, Brenden Rice, and many of the other ex-four star wide receivers that are in USC's wideout room this year. Addison will find space in this offense. His potential is rather limitless.
His place on everyone's First-Team Preseason All-America roster is only the first step. Wearing No. 3 this year, he's a sure thing to be a Trojan legend. That's the best part. SC fans already know he's going to produce this year. Every time he ends up on an All-American list, it's just another reminder of how dominant SC's transfer portal class was in 2022.
