If USC Football No. 1 Wideout Jordan Addison enters the 2023 NFL Draft, which he probably will, the Trojans have found an excellent replacement for him in new transfer WR pickup Dorian Singer. Singer comes from the Arizona football program, and per Chris Treviño of 247Sports, is:

--A four-star transfer prospect

--The No. 14 overall prospect in the transfer portal

--The No. 4 receiver in the entire transfer portal

Dorian Singer has torched the USC Football program when he's played against them in his career.

Dorian Singer has played USC Football twice in his two-year college football career. In those two games, he averages five catches per game, 103 receiving yards per game, and 1.5 receiving touchdowns per game. This last time he played SC (2022), he particularly humiliated the Trojan secondary. Singer caught seven passes for 141 receiving yards and THREE touchdown catches.

Savvy Trojan fans remember all the acrobatic catches he was making against SC to keep that game to just a one-score loss for the scrappy Wildcats. In his career against USC, Singer averages 20.6 yards per catch. It's safe to say that the Trojans are now relieved that he's on their side.

Also, Singer's a great receiver just in general. He had 66 catches for 1,105 receiving yards and six touchdowns this season. That receiving yards number was 12th in college football. Keep in mind that Singer was doing this despite lining up opposite from another one of the top wideouts in the nation in Jacob Cowing.

Treviño has reported that SC is now up to the No. 14 transfer portal class in the nation. It's a solid class to pair with a solid high school recruiting class that ranks No. 13 in America (247Sports).

Look--replacing a BIletnikoff winner in Addison is essentially impossible. Singer, however, is a proven No. 1 who can most certainly play at a high level, and even stand out despite other top pass catching options available. He proved it even as just a sophomore with the Cats. He's progressed so rapidly, and is only going to get better as he gets older.

As for now--assuming Addison enters the 2023 NFL Draft (which he likely will because he's likely in line to be a First Round pick)--Singer would slot in as the X receiver in this offense. He'll be the No. 1 guy, with Mario Williams likely set to be the Z receiver and No. 2 option, and Tahj Washington as the Y receiver in the slot and No. 3 guy.
