Texas 'Involved In Pursuit' of Pitt Transfer Star Jordan Addison

Texas is reportedly in the mix for the new top name in the transfer portal

The Texas Longhorns have already had a strong haul via the transfer portal this offseason, adding key playmakers at positions of need across the board, including at quarterback and wide receiver. 

And in recent days, they have been connected with yet another potential impact player, in Pittsburgh wideout and Biletnikoff Award winner, Jordan Addison. 

Addison, who entered the transfer portal on Tuesday, reportedly left the Panthers due to potential NIL opportunities, is reportedly expected to be pursued by USC, Texas, with more top programs potentially getting involved.

If the Longhorns are able to add Addison he would join other offensive playmakers that have come to Austin through the portal such as receiver Isaiah Neyor, tight end Jahleel Billingsley, and quarterback Quinn Ewers in an offense that already features two of the nation's top playmakers -- running back Bijan Robinson and receiver Xavier Worthy.

Worthy was recently recruited by a division one program to leave Austin himself on an NIL deal but elected to remain with the Longhorns.
