‘A one in a Million Thing’: At Ron Rivera’s Behest, Jahan Dotson Will Walk at Penn State’s Graduation

At the behest of his head coach, Jahan Dotson will walk at Penn State’s graduation Saturday. 

Washington coach Ron Rivera had other ideas and told Dotson to go to graduation because it’s a “one in a million thing.”

Dotson will earn his degree in telecommunications.

Two Thursdays ago, Washington made Dotson the first Penn State receiver since Bryant Johnson in 2003 to go in the first round and just the fourth in school history, with Kenny Jackson (1984) and O.J. McDuffie (1993) being the other two.

At Penn State, Dotson was one of the best receivers in school history, finishing his career second in school history to DaeSean Hamilton in receptions and fourth on the school’s all-time receiving list. Dotson was the sixth receiver taken in this year’s NFL draft and was understandably delighted to get “the call” from Rivera. 

” How do you feel about being the first-ever first-round pick of the Commanders?” Rivera asked Dotson.

“I would love that,” Dotson replied. “I would love that.”

“Well, we look forward to having you as a member of our football team, alright?” Rivera said.

“Yeah, I appreciate it,” Dotson responded. I really do. You have no idea.”

“You have no idea how happy we are to have you on our football team,” Rivera said. 

Penn State’s graduation runs May 6-8.
