As a sophomore in 2013, Addison started 11 of 13 games, recording 61 receptions for 890 yards and seven touchdowns. He also returned two punt returns for touchdowns. Addison missed 2014 due to a torn ACL suffered during spring practice.[3] He came close to playing in the 2015 College Football Playoff National Championship, but was not completely healed in time for the game.[4][5] Addison returned from the injury to play in all 13 games in 2015. He finished with 63 receptions for 804 yards, 10 receiving touchdowns, two rushing touchdowns and one punt return touchdown. After the season, he entered the 2016 NFL Draft.[6]
