Highlights of Jahan Dotson's 2021 season at Penn State
Jahan Dotson will soon learn his new team after 4 seasons at Penn State. The standout wide receiver will be getting the call in the 2022 NFL Draft.
As a 4-year contributor at Penn State, Dotson was a senior in 2021. He had the option to return for a 5th-year using the NCAA’s COVID-19 waiver, but, unsurprisingly, chose to go pro after a stellar season.
Dotson became the sixth wide receiver in Penn State program history to have a 1,000-yard season. His marks of 91 catches, 1,182 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns rank second at Penn State in a single season.
Dotson went off for 242 yards against Maryland in 2021. His big game earned him plenty of recognition as the Reese’s Senior Bowl Player of the Week, the Big Ten Co-Offensive Player of the Week and PFF National Team of the Week honors. Against Ohio State, Dotson had a career-high 11 catches.
For the season as a whole, Dotson earned third-team All-America honors from the Associated Press and Phil Steele. He was also named a Reese’s Senior Bowl All-American. Media members named Dotson first-team All-Big Ten, while he was a second-team All-Big Ten selection by the coaches. In addition to his wide receiver recognition, Dotson also earned honorable mention All-Big Ten honors from the media as a return specialist.
In addition to his on-field recognition, Dotson was also selected to the Paul Hornung Award Honor Roll twice, a weekly honor (Sep. 18 vs. Auburn; Oct. 2 vs. Indiana).
Here are some highlights from Dotson’s memorable 2021 season:
