Monday’s Arizin: Villanova offers 4-star 2024 forward Marcus Allen (Sept. 12)

Kicking off the week with a quick recruiting update.

Villanova Mug Arizin Links

There’s one more target to add to Villanova’s recruiting list: four-star 2024 wing Marcus Allen.

Allen, a 6-foot-6 player from Miami, Fla., is coming off of a solid sophomore season, where he averaged 18.2 points, 7.7 rebounds and 1.3 steals per game for Norland High School in Florida. He recently transferred to Compass Prep in Arizona.

He announced the news of his offer on his Instagram on Saturday night.

247 sports lists him as a four-star player, but it appears his recruiting profiles haven’t been updated yet and still list him from Norland, and it’s missing several of his offers.

Here’s your daily dose of links, from Cam Whitmore’s draft prospects, to Austin Calitro getting a starting nod with the Giants (he had four tackles, including two for loss in their win against Tennessee), and more:
