Penn State will have two representatives on the Pennsylvania sidelines for the annual Big 33 Football Classic this summer as Nazareth's Jahan Dotson and Cumberland Valley's Charlie Katshir were named to the roster on Tuesday morning.

The game, which pits the top high school football players from Pennsylvania and Maryland against each other, will take place at Central Dauphin HS on Saturday, June 16. 

Dotson, who flipped to Penn State from UCLA at the start of the early signing day, caught 15 touchdown passes in 2017 for Nazareth. He'll look to have one more high school football memory in the Big 33 game before becoming Penn State's swiss army knife on offense starting in the fall. 

Katshir was recruited to Penn State as a linebacker but played both ways in high school at wide receiver and cornerback. He is listed to suit up at wideout in the exhibition after a senior season which saw him compile 1,489 all-purpose yards. 

Former Penn State commit Shaquon Anderson-Butts, who signed with Iowa Western Community College earlier this month, will also suit up for the Keystone State. 

The Pennsylvania team might have had even more of a Nittany Lion presence if it weren't for guys like Micah Parsons, Jesse Luketa, Zack Kuntz, and Nick Tarburton enrolling early at Penn State. 

The Maryland roster should be announced sometime in the coming weeks and we'll see if Penn State signees Rasheed Walker and Daniel George make the cut.
