“See you on Sunday,” he wrote in a post shared to Instagram.

Addison blew up at Pittsburgh in 2021, winning the Biletnikoff Award as the best receiver in the country and earning consensus All-American honors after posting a school-record 100 receptions for 1,593 yards and 17 touchdowns (tied for first in the nation).

He committed to transfer to USC last offseason, choosing Lincoln Riley and the Trojans over interest from just about everyone.

In a loaded receiver room, Addison still stood out. He had seven catches for 172 yards in his first Pac-12 game against Stanford on Sept. 10, then posted another 100-yard game against Arizona State on Oct. 1.

Addison dealt with a nagging ankle issue from the Trojans’ Oct. 15 loss to Utah throughout the rest of the season. He missed two games in the regular season as a result, and only ever looked like himself once the rest of the way. Addison went off for 178 yards and a score on 11 catches in the Trojans’ Nov. 19 win over UCLA, but was limited to 45 yards on three catches the following week against Notre Dame and then 65 yards on five catches in USC’s Pac-12 title loss to Utah. Addison opted out of the Cotton Bowl to prepare for the draft.

He finished the season with 875 yards on 59 receptions. Heading into bowl season, the 6-foot Maryland native was tied for the Pac-12 lead with eight receiving touchdowns.  He ranked eighth in the Pac-12 in receiving yards and earned a spot on the All-Pac-12 First Team for his efforts.

Addison is believed to be a first-round pick in the upcoming draft. ESPN’s Todd McShay has Addison ranked as the second-best receiver in the class and has compared him to L.A. Chargers star Keenan Allen. The Draft begins on April 27.
