As a Recruit
Before emerging as one of the best wide receivers in college football, Jordan Addison was a four-star recruit and do-it-all player out of Frederick (Maryland) Tuscarora. As a senior in high school, he played quarterback, wide receiver and defensive back. Addison had previously played basketball during his first two years in high school but gave it up to improve his speed and run indoor track. At Pittsburgh, he emerged as a freshman as one of the ACC’s top wideouts, finishing second for ACC Rookie of the Year and earning multiple Freshman All-American honors. As a sophomore, he became the best wideout in the country, becoming a consensus All-American and winner of the 2021 Biletnikoff Award. Addison is the son of Keisha Blackman.
