The National Football Foundation College Football Hall of Fame has released its 2021 nominations with former Nittany Lions DJ Dozier, Bobby Engram, and Steve Wisniewski all appearing on the ballot.

Dozier was a consensus All-American in 1986, helping lead the Nittany Lions to a perfect season and the program's second national title. The first Nittany Lion to lead the team in rushing four straight years, Dozier's 3,227 career rushing yards rank No. 7 in Penn State history.

Engram, Penn State's lone Biletnikoff Award winner, was a three-time first-team All-Big Ten selection and the first Penn State receiver to record a 1,000-yard season. He led the Nittany Lions receiving during their perfect 1994 season and was named a first-team All-American for his efforts. He still remains Penn State's all-time leader in receiving yards and touchdowns.

Wisniewski helped lead the way for Dozier during Penn State's 1986 title run before becoming a two-time All-American in 1987 and 1988. He would go on to play 12 years in the NFL, starting over 200 games and making eight Pro Bowls.

Also appearing on the ballot is current Penn State wide receivers coach Taylor Stubblefield. A first-time All-American in 2004, Stubblefield left Purdue as the NCAA's all-time leader in receptions, a record he held for seven years. He still holds the Big Ten record for career catches.
