Wisconsin Badgers Markus Allen is transferring to Eastern Michigan

Former Wisconsin wide receiver Markus Allen committed to Eastern Michigan on Friday.

Allen played with the Badgers from 2021 to 2022. He left the program in June 2023, but did not immediately find a D-1 home and has played at Butler Community College since.

His collegiate path has been a roller coaster, to say the least. The former three-star recruit headed to Wisconsin during the 2021 recruiting cycle after originally committing to Michigan. He was 247Sports’ No. 53 wide receiver in the class and the No. 15 recruit from his home state of Ohio.

The wide receiver then played two years for the Badgers, appearing in nine games and recording a total of 10 receptions for 156 yards and one touchdown.

Allen originally entered the transfer portal after Wisconsin fired head coach Paul Chryst in October 2022. He verbally committed to Minnesota at that time, although he reneged on that commitment and returned to the Badgers after the season.

Then, as mentioned, he re-entered the portal in June 2023, spent his senior year at Butler Community College in Clayton, Ohio and now has a DI home.

Allen joins an Eastern Michigan program that went 6-7 in 2023. The Eagles are ESPN SP+’s No. 119-ranked team entering the 2024 season. The depth chart lists several veteran receivers, which could make it challenging for Allen to see the field immediately.
