Yesterday, Jaden Dottin, a former wide receiver from the class of 2020 and Penn State football transfer portal loss, announced that he has found himself a new home with the University of Toledo in the MAC conference. This decision comes slightly over a month after the Nittany Lions’ spring game, which was held on April 15th at Beaver Stadium.

Jaden Dottin initially committed to Penn State football as part of the 2020 recruiting class. However, he did not see much playing time during his three seasons in State College. He appeared in five games, making two catches for a total of 14 yards, with his longest reception being nine yards. In 2022, Dottin made his first career start against the Ohio Bobcats from the MAC conference in Week 2.

As a high school recruit, Jaden Dottin was considered a three-star composite recruit and was ranked as the No. 93 wide receiver in the nation. He was also ranked as the No. 5 recruit in Connecticut. Notably, he did not receive a national ranking.

In an announcement on Thursday, the former Penn State football wide receiver revealed that he has found a new team in the MAC conference through the transfer portal. Dottin shared yesterday that he will be joining the Toldeo Rockets for the upcoming 2023 season. This transfer appears to be a fair exchange, as Penn State recently acquired a top wide receiver from the MAC, Dante Cephas, via the transfer portal as well.
