Trojans Wire discusses Jordan Addison on national podcast

The Jordan Addison situation remains unresolved, with USC, Texas, and Alabama in the hunt for the elite wide receiver who recently entered the transfer portal.

The Addison case is just one of several instances in which rumored NIL deals have caused a stir throughout the college sports industry. What began as an attempt to allow athletes to market themselves and make money from local businesses in the cities and towns where they play college sports has become something else entirely: pay-for-play.

The NCAA is scrambling to provide more structure for this not-very-organized system, but the NCAA itself refused to deal with this problem in recent years, so it only has itself to blame for the mess.

It’s certainly not Lincoln Riley’s fault. He and other coaches are just trying to gain an advantage within this chaotic landscape. USC’s involvement in the Jordan Addison portal recruitment saga is not scandalous, even though a lot of people outside the USC program wanted to believe the worst about the Trojans and Riley when rumors flew about an NIL deal with Addison a few weeks ago.

We talked about Addison, NIL, pay-for-play, and NCAA reforms with Jason Powers of the Powers on Sports podcast. Subscribe to, like, and share Jason’s podcast. (We discussed other topics as well, but USC, Riley, Addison, and NCAA reforms were a core part of the show.)
