Only Jahan Dotson and Tariq Castro-Fields Until Penn State Football


NCAA Football: Illinois at Penn State Matthew OHaren-USA TODAY Sports

We have the rare double-honoree going on today with the countdown, as both players who rock the No. 5 jersey are well deserving of it. First, on the offensive side of the ball is Jahan Dotson, a man who needs no introduction at this point. Look for him to have a 1,000-plus yard season if all goes according to plan. Not to mention, Jahan will be a leader and role model for others in the receiving room.

Wearing No. 5 on the defense is none other than Tariq Castro-Fields. After a 2020 season that left a bad taste in his mouth, the guy who could’ve left for the NFL Draft at the end of 2019 has instead opted to use his extra year of eligibility via the NCAA’s COVID policy. It’s one of the main reasons why the cornerbacks are seen as the strongest unit of this Penn State defense.
