RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCT) — Former J.H. Rose High School standout Michael Allen announced on X that he will no longer be playing at N.C. State and will enter the transfer portal.
Allen said on his Twitter account, “After much consideration and discussion with my family, I have decided not to participate in the season’s final game. I will be entering the transfer portal as a true sophomore at the conclusion of the regular season. Thank you Wolfpack Nation for this opportunity.”
He has not indicated where he will transfer.
Allen was a highly-regarded running back who chose the Wolfpack over East Carolina and North Carolina. Injuries during his senior season at Rose limited him to 235 yards on 21 carries and a touchdown during the spring 2021 season. High schools played football then due to the coronavirus pandemic postponing the season.
He has rushed for 251 yards and a touchdown on 52 carries this season. He also had 11 catches for 66 yards. His best game was when he rushed for 70 yards and a touchdown against Marshall.
He finished his NC State career with 519 yards rushing with a touchdown.
