Nazareth (Pa.) sophomore wide receiver Jahan Dotson is a name to remember as evidenced by an early offer list consisting of Notre Dame, Alabama, Georgia and a host of others. The Keystone State standout recently added another offer to his already impressive slate.
“(Michigan Linebackers) Coach (Chris) Partridge offered me and it was just an overall great feeling,” Dotson told The Michigan Insider. “He just told me about how he was the Paramus coach and is trying to get guys from the northeast region up to Michigan and wanted to jump in the bunch as a school to recruit me. I’m just I'm extremely grateful.”
The 5-11, 160-pound Dotson plans to giving a closer look at Michigan since landing the offer.
“They are a very good school, so I am very interested,” said Dotson. “I like how they recruit lots of guys from the Jersey area because I believe we have some of the best talent around he country. I heard the academics are (good), so that's always a good thing because that's the major part. I feel as though Coach (Jim) Harbaugh can provide you a lot and get you to where you want to be."
"I definitely (plan on visiting), but not sure (when).”
One of Michigan's more appealing attributes in Dotson's eyes is the heavy emphasis put on recruiting East Coast. He happens to have a connection to one of the more prominent Wolverines from that part of the country.
“Since they do (recruit a lot of East Coast kids) I was really hoping I would get an offer," he said. "Since I got it I’m going to look more into the school. My dad is close friends with Jabrill Peppers dad too.”
