Get ready to see a lot more of Jahan Dotson in Penn State’s passing attack. James Franklin has decided not to utilize his redshirt and the freshman receiver will be on the field throughout the next month.

Franklin made the announcement on his weekly radio show on Thursday. He said the reason behind the decision to burn the redshirt was to help redshirt freshman KJ Hamler when he needs a break. The Penn State head coach believes Dotson can be a nice “complement” for when Hamler is on the sideline.

Dotson, who has played in three games this season, would be able to participate in one more contest and not lose his redshirt. Penn State has four regular season games and a bowl game remaining.

Franklin also said that Dotson has proved the moment isn’t “too big” for the receiver.

Dotson has played in each of Penn State’s last two games. He’s caught three passes for 31 yards. The freshman also appeared in the Nittany Lions’ Sept. 15 matchup against Kent State.

As a recruit, Dotson was a 4-star wide receiver who was previously committed to UCLA. He made a late decision to stay closer to home and join Penn State. He’s a native of Nazareth, Pennsylvania and was a top 200 player in his class.

Franklin said he’s unsure of how much Dotson will play over the next four games, but that he’ll definitely be on the field.

Penn State travels to Michigan on Saturday.
