Overview

If Penn State is hoping to see some players step up at the receiver position to take some of the pressure of Jahan Dotson, perhaps Keandre Lambert-Smith could be a name to keep a close eye on. A four-star recruit in Penn State’s Class of 2020, Lambert-Smith got a chance to dip his toes in the waters as a true freshman last fall by appearing in all nine games played by Penn State.

The talented freshman caught two passes for a total of 25 yards in his Penn State debut (against Indiana). He also started one game, against Maryland, along with Parker Washington. The freshmen became the first freshman receiving duo to start a game for Penn State since 2014 (Chris Godwin and Saeed Blacknall).

Lambert-Smith is searching for his first career touchdown as well as a more pivotal role in the Penn State offense. Coming off a full offseason after a full season under his belt, Lambert-Smith should be among the players who take some significant steps forward in the Penn State offense in 2021.

Lambert-Smith may have to prove he has earned more of a role in the Penn State passing game before getting his opportunity to shine more. Dotson is among the Big Ten’s top receivers returning in 2021 and Washington was the team’s second-leading receiver in 2020 with 489 yards on 36 receptions.

But the potential for a breakout season is right there for Lambert-Smith, and his development could make for a lethal passing attack for the Nittany Lions if he can work his way into the game plan more in 2021.
