Penn State wide receiver Jahan Dotson will return to Happy Valley for his senior season, giving the Nittany Lion offense their best offensive weapon back for another year.

Dotson caught a team-high 52 balls this season while leading the Big Ten with 884 receiving yards and 8 tuddies. He was a favorite target for Sean Clifford and routinely made highlight-reel grabs, with his performance against Ohio State in Week 2 setting the stage for his breakout season. A dynamic playmaker, he added nearly 200 yards and one score in the return game.

With Dotson back, the case could be made that the Nittany Lions boast the best receiving corps in the conference. Kirk Ciarrocca's offense will now return seven of their top eight pass catchers and nearly 85% of their receiving yards from last season.

Welcome back, Jahan.
