NSD: Addison Chooses Ducks

Fox Sports Next was on hand for the announcement of Missouri City Hightower athlete Bralon Addison on national Signing Day. In what most thought as a 50/50 split, Addison chose Oregon over his prior commitment to Texas A&M. Here is a quick feature on one of the reasons he chose the Pac-12 program.

Let the praise and the animosity begin.

Yes, the electronic world of media went into somewhat of a frenzy when Missouri City (TX) Hightower athlete Bralon Addison pulled a switch and decided to sign his letter of intent for Oregon over previous commitment to Texas A&M.

And while Addison does feel like athletically this was a good fit for his talents, it's not just all about the football for the 5-foot-10, 180-pound athlete.

"I want to major in broadcast journalism and Oregon is one of the best programs in the country," Addison said. "As far as playing, coach (Chip) Kelly has such a creative mind offensively. Can't wait to play in his system. Overall, Oregon, for me, was the best place for me to succeed for the next four years."

Now with the Duck program, Addison will be used in a number of ways on offense and special teams, but will primarily be a slot receiver. This past season was his best year at Hightower leading his team to the state title game. He rushed for 1,630 yards and 20 touchdowns and threw for 2,150 yards and 22 touchdowns to only three interceptions.
