Jordan Addison is the reigning Biletnikoff Award winner and one of the top returning receivers in college football.
But it looks like he won't be returning to Pitt.
Addison reportedly plans to leave the Pitt football and transfer to another program – potentially USC – and NIL is rumored to be a huge factor.

Hearing rumors that Biletnikoff winner Jordan Addison is transferring from Pitt to USC on a massive NIL deal. This is getting wild.— Adam Breneman (@AdamBreneman81) April 30, 2022
SOURCE: Quite a situation brewing involving Biletnikoff Award winner Jordan Addison looking into transferring from Pitt with USC as a possible destination. He had 100 catches for 1593 yards and 17 TDs last year.— Bruce Feldman (@BruceFeldmanCFB) April 30, 2022
Addison is far from the only high-profile player to look to transfer to a bigger program or seek an NIL paycheck, but making this situation a little more unique is that multiple reports have linked Addison to USC citing a massive NIL deal before he even entered his name in the NCAA transfer portal.
Regardless, Addison is one of the top returning receivers in the country and his sudden transfer and the optics behind it will certainly make a splash in college football.
