Wisconsin Football: Badgers Lose WR to Transfer Portal

On Sunday evening, Wisconsin Badgers wide receiver Markus Allen announced that he will enter the transfer portal. The redshirt freshman was with the program for two seasons.

Allen took to Twitter to announce his decision:

“First want to thank everyone in the Wisconsin Football program for everything they’ve done up to this point. For helping me academically and athletically form the strength staff all the way down to the trainers. Truly love the bonds I’ve made with he great people and the memories with brothers. Thank you Coach Chryst & the Coaching Staff for giving me an opportunity at the University of Wisconsin. With that being said I would like to announce that I have officially entered the NCAA Transfer Portal. With 3 years remaining of NCAA Eligibility.”

The decision from Allen comes shortly after an overtime loss to the Michigan State Spartans.

In his time as a Badger, Allen appeared in nine games. The 6-foot-1, 212-pound wide receiver notched three catches for 65 yards in his first season with Wisconsin. This year, Allen hauled in seven catches for 91 yards and a touchdown.

Allen was a four-star recruit in 2020 who ranked in the top 500. He was the 61st wide receiver in the class and the tenth ranked player in Ohio.

The Ohio native now enters the transfer portal with three years of eligibility remaining. With his set of skills as a wideout, he will garner attention in the portal.
