West Virginia QB target Beau Allen to make college choice on Monday

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Neal Brown will go to bed Sunday night hoping his Kentucky connection can work some magic for West Virginia on Monday.

Four-star quarterback prospect Beau Allen will be making his college choice, and West Virginia is among his four finalists. The others are Kentucky, Washington State and Duke.

The hometown Wildcats are seen as the favorites. Allen is from Lexington, Ky., and all the other schools are vying to pry him away for college. Brown has had some early success recruiting in his home state, securing his first Class of 2020 commitment from wide receiver Reese Smith.

Allen was one of the first players to visit West Virginia in Brown’s tenure. He paid his first visit on Jan. 19, just two weeks after Brown was hired. He came back for the spring game in April. Brown first offered Allen a scholarship to Troy last January, prior to his junior season.

Rivals ranks Allen as the No. 15 pro-style quarterback in his class. West Virginia already has a quarterback among the four players committed to the upcoming class in three-star Garrett Greene. The Mountaineers are targeting two quarterbacks in this year’s class with incumbents Jack Allison and Austin Kendall entering their junior seasons of eligibility.
