The additions of former Kent State wide receiver Dante Cephas and former Florida State wide receiver Malik McClain have bolstered Penn State’s wide receiving corps, but it’s also led to a bloated unit.

That, of course, means that there are a number of wide receivers on the roster without a path to consistent playing time. One of them being Jaden Dottin.

Dottin officially entered the transfer portal Tuesday, announcing his decision via Twitter.

“Thank you Penn State and everyone involved with me for everything. I am forever grateful. I am now officially in the transfer portal with 3 years of eligibility.”

Dottin first arrived in Happy Valley as a four-star wide receiver out of Suffield Academy in Connecticut in the class of 2020. However, he hasn’t been able to see the field much during his time as a Nittany Lion.

He played in one game as a true freshman in 2020 and three in 2021, but he didn’t receive any targets offensively. He caught 2-of-3 targets in 2022, racking up 14 yards — on just nine offensive snaps.

Dottin entered the transfer portal on the final day of the winter window, so he will be able to find a new school. As a redshirt junior, he will

Cephas and McClain will form a nucleus that includes KeAndre Lambert, Harrison Wallace and the potential for a number of young wide receivers to step into the lineup.
