Penn State continues to add talent at the wide receiver position to the 2020 recruiting class.
Friday, the Nittany Lions landed a commitment from elite 4-star wide receiver Jaden Dottin out of Connecticut. He is the second wide receiver to join the class, along with three-star Pennsylvania native Norval Black, who also committed this month.
Dottin was one of two players to pledge to Penn State on Friday, along with junior college defensive back Ji’Ayir Brown, who is currently at Lackawanna Community College.
The announcement from Dottin was made on Twitter, and it was brief and to the point. The four-star receiver tweeted out “#WeAre…HOME!” along with a commitment image.

Dottin brings good size to the wide receiver position, standing 6-foot-3 with excellent ball skills and speed. He’s listed as the No. 44 receiver in the class and falls into the top 250 players overall in 2020. Dottin is also considered a top three player out of Connecticut.
Dottin had several B1G offers, but chose Penn State over Michigan, Michigan State and Rutgers. He also had interest from Boston College, UConn, Duke, Pitt and Syracuse.
Penn State’s 2020 class currently ranks 20th nationally and second in the B1G. There are 11 players committed.
