Notebook (12-14): PSU offers Dudley, Lang

Welcome to our daily Nittany Notebook. This post will be updated frequently throughout the day with news, notes and sometimes entertaining info. So be sure to check back often to stay on top of everything that’s going on with Penn State football and athletics, plus other sports of interest in central PA.

Update: 1:30 p.m.

**Penn State football has sent out a couple of offers. One is to Class of 2022 4-star LB TJ Dudley (6-2, 210) from Montgomery, Ala. He also has offers from Alabama, Clemson and Auburn, so he certainly would be a good get for the Lions.

PSU also has offered Class of 2023 OT Vysen Lang (6-5, 330), who attends the same high school in Alabama that recent WR commit Harrison Wallace attends (Pike Road HS).

**Penn State WR Jahan Dotson was named Big Ten Special Teams Player of the Week on Monday after having an 81-yard for a touchdown that helped the Nittany Lions seal the deal in a 39-24 win over Michigan State.

Dotson also caught eight passes for 108 yards. He became just the third Big Ten player since 2000 with at least 100 yards receiving and a punt return for a TD in the same game. This was the first Big Ten special teams honor for Dotson in his career.

**Saint Francis senior Mark Flagg was named the Northeast Conference Prime Performer of the week as he had 13 points and a career-high 14 rebounds in the Red Flash’s loss at Mount St. Mary’s. Flagg recorded the second double-double of his career in the game.

Saint Francis had a positive COVID test that forced the cancellation of its game Saturday at Saint Bonaventure. The Red Flash’s two NEC home games scheduled for this week at home against Fairleigh Dickinson have been postponed and will be played Jan. 26 and 27.
