Jahan Dotson has become one of college football’s best receivers, and he’s been recognized for it with first-team All-Big Ten honors by the media.
Dotson didn’t receive unanimous first-team honors with 1,182 yards on 91 receptions and 12 touchdowns, as Ohio State’s Chris Olave got the coaches’ vote and Purdue’s David Bell was unanimous first team. Nonetheless, the senior, who figures to be a first-round pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, was one of eight Penn State offensive players to receive some form of all-conference recognition, with ten more honorees coming from the defense.
Quarterback Sean Clifford was named honorable mention by coaches and media. On the offensive line, tackle Rasheed Walker was named to the third team by coaches and an honorable mention by media, guard/center Juice Scruggs was named honorable mention by both and center Mike Miranda was named honorable mention by the media. Additionally, receiver Parker Washington and tight ends Brenton Strange and Tyler Warren were all named honorable mention by media. Washington finished the regular season with 722 yards on 57 receptions and four touchdowns. At tight end, Strange had 226 yards on 19 catches with three scores. Warren only caught four passes all year, used primarily in a blocking role.
Of the eight offensive honorees, only Dotson looks for sure to be leaving after this year. The other seven have the option to come back to State College in 2022.
