Gardena (Calif.) Serra four-star athlete Bryan Addisonrecently announced a list of his final seven college choices, which broke from his previous top five college choices.
With Ohio State and Michigan entering the picture with scholarship offers after the USC Rising Stars Camp Sunday, that final seven may also be revised over the next few months.
While it remains to be seen whether USC, UCLA, Nebraska, Oregon, Arizona, Arizona State and Washington, his experience at the Rising Stars Camp did put the Trojans in a positive light going forward.
“The entire coaching staff as a whole was able to watch me perform,” said Addison. “The camp helped get me exposure. It also showed us what we need to do to be ready for the next level.
“The highlight was the one-on-ones and performing against other top competitors.”
In past interviews Addison wavered on USC because of one main factor. The Trojans began recruiting Addison as a safety, and signing two top safeties in 2017, he saw a sizable roadblock in garnering immediate playing time at USC.
However, over the past two months, Addison has started to reconsider what side of the football he will play in college. Sunday, he was dominant playing both defensive back and wide receiver.
“The coaches talked about that at the camp, but I feel like I can compete with anyone,” said Addison. “Coach Tee Martin said that I could be the best wide receiver on the West Coast with the talent I have.”
With his 6-foot-4 height and leaping ability, Addison had his way with the majority of mid-tier competition he faced at the camp.
“My best play was probably when I jumped a comeback route and made a pick,” said Addison.
But now that he is playing more and more on offense, Addison is living up to his athlete title.
“It makes me feel like my hard work is really paying off,” said Addison.
Addison’s top seven could become a top 10 over the summer, or completely morph into an official visit list by the beginning of the season. One thing he does know is the reason why he would incorporate USC into that list.
“I’ve always wanted to be a Trojan, and when I put out my top seven, I didn’t want to leave that dream out,” said Addison.
