After his breakout 2020 season, Penn State wide receiver Jahan Dotson was named to the Maxwell Award Watch List on Monday. The award is presented to the best all-around college football player. The award is presented by the Maxwell Football Club and began back in 1937. The award is voted on by head coaches, members of the Maxwell Football Club, and a variety of sports media members.

Dotson caught 52 passes last season and led the Big Ten with 884 receiving yards and eight touchdowns. 

He looks to become the eighth Nittany Lion to win the Maxwell Award. Larry Johnson was the last Penn State player to win the award in 2002.
