Three reasons missing out on Jordan Addison isn’t the end of the world

While Nick Saban and Jimbo Fisher were busy taking shots at one another and the legitimacy of each other’s recruiting practices on Thursday, the best available transfer in the country announced where he would be playing next season.

The 2021 Biletnikoff winner, Jordan Addison, took to Twitter to announce that he would be transferring to USC. An announcement that seemed inevitable, as he was being linked to the Trojans before his name had even entered the portal sparking up the discussion of tampering in college football.

Whether or not his interest in Texas was in good faith or a charade to delay the inevitable USC decision, the Longhorns were among the final two schools for his services.

While many were split on whether Texas needed Addison or not, he wasn’t a necessity to the success of the upcoming season. However, having three elite receivers in Xavier Worthy, Isaiah Neyor, and Addison would have been a tremendous luxury to have.

Missing out on players like Florida State’s Jared Verse or Nebraska’s Ochaun Mathis actually hurt Texas more than missing out on Addison, as the Longhorns needed much more help on defense.

Let’s take a look at the three reasons that missing out on Addison wasn’t the end of the world for Texas, starting out with the strong transfer class of receivers the Longhorns already brought in.
