Morgantown, West Virginia – Jordan Addison, Pitt’s most talented player from last season, recently entered the transfer portal and is reportedly being offered up to $3 million and other perks from the University of Southern California to finish his collegiate playing career with the Trojans.
Addison, last year’s Biletnikoff Award Winner given to the nation’s top wide receiver, had 100 receptions, 1,593 receiving yards and 17 receiving touchdowns for the Panthers last season.
Since entering the portal, Addison has heard from not only USC but also Miami, Alabama, Georgia, Texas, Clemson, LSU, among many other top programs, but unfortunately Neal Brown and his coaching staff have not yet reached out to him.
Here’s why West Virginia should do everything possible to bring Addison to Morgantown:
West Virginia needs him.
While the Mountaineers have several talented wide receivers, including Bryce Ford-Wheaton, Kaden Prather, Sam James and local sensation Preston Fox, they lack a proven superstar at the position.
Addison is perhaps the very best wide receiver in the entire nation and he would immediately be the best, most explosive player on West Virginia’s offense.
He’s worth the money.
While $3 million is a lot of money, there are many donors who would happily pay that and more to bring Addison to West Virginia. Jordan Addison combined with JT Daniels at quarterback makes the Mountaineers a legitimate contender to win the Big 12 Conference and perhaps compete for a national championship.
A Big 12 Championship is easily worth $3 million. A national championship is worth a whole lot more than that.
Landing Jordan Addison shows that West Virginia means business.
Stealing a player of Addison’s caliber from their top rival would be the ultimate coup for the Mountaineers! Imagine the horror for Pitt if their best, most talented player lined up for West Virginia in the opening game of the season in the Backyard Brawl.
Nothing would be more beautiful or satisfying for the West Virginia football program than that. College football is a very different business than it was a few years ago and it’s time for the Mountaineers to make a real splash by carrying out one of the most spectacular, legal heist in college football history!
