The reigning Biletnikoff Award winner could be on the move this offseason. According to multiple reports, Pitt wide receiver Jordan Addison is considering transferring.

Addison had an incredible sophomore season at Pitt, hauling in 100 passes for 1,593 yards and 17 touchdowns.

Per Bruce Feldman of The Athletic, Addison is "seriously considering" a move to USC. Of course, other programs will be interested in the All-American wide receiver if he actually enters the transfer portal.

There are plenty of eyes on this situation in large part because we've officially entered the NIL era of college sports.

College football analyst Adam Breneman is reporting that Addison is transferring from Pitt to USC on a "massive NIL deal." If that's true, there'll be plenty of strong reactions to that decision.

The deadline for transfers to be eligible to play this fall is May 1. That means Addison is running out of time to make a decision.

Addison is widely regarded as the top wide receiver prospect heading into the 2022 college football season. If he joins USC, that would give Lincoln Riley yet another dynamic playmaker.

That being said, Addison has not entered the transfer portal at this time.
