Penn State Football’s Jahan Dotson Returning For Senior Season

Penn State football’s 2021 offense now looks a whole lot scarier, folks.

Wide receiver Jahan Dotson announced Thursday night via his Twitter account that he’s returning to Penn State for his senior season.

Dotson will run it back another year after some speculation that he may declare for the 2021 NFL Draft.

The Pennsylvania native enjoyed a breakout 2020 season, totaling 52 receptions worth 884 yards and eight touchdowns. His receiving yard total led the Big Ten, while his reception total ranked No. 2. He made many highlight-reel plays this past season, including a slick one-handed grab against Ohio State.

His elite performance this past season earned him third-team All-Big Ten honors by the conference’s coaches and media, as well as second-team honors from Pro Football Focus.

In his first three years as a Nittany Lion, Dotson has posted 92 receptions for 1,575 yards and 13 touchdowns.

Dotson’s return is a significant development for Penn State offense, as he emerged as one of the best receivers in the Big Ten this past season. Heading into next fall, Dotson will lead the Nittany Lions receiving core, with emerging talents Parker Washington and KeAndre Lambert-Smith right behind him.
