Western Kentucky could be without a freshman wide receiver who made a splash in spring practice. Wednesday morning, Manny Allen's name entered the transfer portal, according to 247sports.

WKU could not confirm Allen's intent to transfer as of Wednesday morning.

Allen, a 6-foot-2, 185-pound native of Moreno Valley, Calif., is one of five receivers forming part of WKU's early signing class in December.

Allen is a former three-star prospect who signed with the Hilltoppers after previously committing to Southern California, Nebraska and Louisville.

He enrolled early and participated in all of spring practice with WKU. Allen had two touchdown receptions in the annual spring game.

In three prep seasons in California, Allen caught 91 passes for 1,441 yards and 14 touchdowns.
