Alabama football has a roster full of wide receivers — including two transfers — but is it looking for someone else?
Jordan Addison, a former standout at Pittsburgh, entered the NCAA transfer portal on Tuesday. Strong rumors suggested the reason was for marquee NIL opportunities. USC was the rumored destination for Addison, but the talented receiver is working out with Alabama quarterback Bryce Young in California. The news of Young and Addison came via Max Olson of The Athletic.

Addison won the Biletnikoff Award in 2021, totaling 100 receptions for 1,593 yards and 17 touchdowns.
The 6-foot, 175-pounder has speed, explosiveness, routes, and hands.
He became the third Panther to win the honor since Larry Fitzgerald (2003) and Antonio Bryant (2000). If the Crimson Tide gets Addison, it will have three elite transfers with him, Jermaine Burton, and Tyler Harrell. Young is trying to win a College Football Playoff National Championship as a starter. He is also looking to become the first player since Archie Griffin (Ohio State, 1974 and 1975) to repeat as a Heisman Trophy winner. Young is expected by most to be the No. 1 overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft.
