Getting Creative with Addison

Fox Sports Next has the update on Hightower athlete Bralon Addison from Sugar Land, Texas. Now a member of the Oregon program, Addison is ready to get acclimated in every way he can before reporting to campus. He talks about that and reflects back on the entire process…

A couple of months have passed since Sugar Land (TX) Hightower athlete Bralon Addison decided on National Signing Day that Oregon was the best place for him. And as the dust has settled from the uproar from that choice, Addison has had a chance to look back at it all. 

He made the right choice.

"I'm just glad it's over. For me, it was just a blessing to get recruited and have the opportunity," Addison said. "It was the best experience and the most frustrating."

Well now that's over and the 5-foot-10, 180-pound Addison is ready to be a Duck. With the workout manual in hand, Addison is familiarizing himself with the way that Oregon players handle the business.

The question that many have is what position will he play? That answer is one that is quite complex.

"The coaches are going to use me as a slash guy. I will mainly play slot receiver, but there are some other things I will do as well," Addison said. "I may even get in the backfield and play some quarterback, in like a Wildcat package. Many guys used like that might not be able to throw that well. The coaches like that I can throw. 

"Coach Chip Kelly is creative and that is something that I like. Basically he (Kelly) said that he wants to use me in many ways to get the ball in my hands, much like they do with DeAnthony Thomas."

There is a name of a player who burst onto the scene last season and was a real live wire for the Ducks. Addison looks to have an impact much like that once he gets on campus. 

A new era in Addison's life begins on June 23 when he is set to report to summer school. Last season he rushed for 1,630 yards and 20 touchdowns and threw for 2,150 yards and 22 touchdowns to only three interceptions.
