The Pitt football program offered a lot of big-time wide receivers this week and did it again yesterday.
Jahan Dotson (6-0, 160) is a 4-star 2018 wideout from Nazareth, PA and yesterday got the call from Pitt.
“Coach Sherman and I talked for a few minutes on the phone and he said that he’d love to work with someone of my caliber and that he’s been watching me since my freshman year. The offer is a blessing.”
“Coach visited our school on Friday too. I’m going to consider all my options. The thing that I know about Pitt is that the program has sent guys to the league like LeSean McCoy and Darrelle Revis and that’s pretty cool”, said Dotson.
“Tyler Boyd, I’m familiar with him and I like his game plus Devin Street, a local guy that plays for my favorite team.”
Sherman isn’t the only coach noticing the talent of Dotson. Despite only being a sophomore, he has offers from schools like Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Georgia, Miami (Fla), Michigan, Mississippi, Ohio State, Penn State, Texas A&M and West Virginia. That’s a whole bunch of big schools recruiting this sophomore.
“I’m honestly just pretty calm about it right now and just focusing on my school work”, said Dotson. “Some advice that I’m getting is to just stay humble through this whole process.”
Here’s some background on Dotson. The 6’0 160 pound wideout is originally from East Orange, New Jersey and moved to Pennsylvania when he was in 2nd grade. Last season, Dotson had 66 receptions for 1,179 yards and 21 total touchdowns.
“Some of my strengths are definitely my speed and the way I can attack the ball in the air as I hear that from most of the coaches.”
Dotson doesn’t plan to be a player that makes an early decision and will visit plenty of schools and enjoy the recruiting process.
“I’ve never been to Pitt but would love to get up there sometime.”
I’m pretty sure that’s something that Coach Sherman will try and make happen.
