Purdue QB Brady Allen enters transfer portal

Brady Allen, expected to compete for Purdue’s starting quarterback job in 2023, said Monday he is entering the transfer portal.

A four-star recruit in the Class of 2022, Allen is an Indiana native who starred at Gibson Southern High School. The 247Sports composite ranked him as the No. 10 quarterback in the class.

Allen played behind seniors Aidan O’Connell and primary backup Austin Burton in the 2022 season and saw limited playing time, completing 1 of 3 pass attempts for 8 yards.

He will have four years of eligibility remaining.

“It’s been an awesome experience wearing the black and gold,” Allen posted to Twitter. “I am thankful for the relationships and memories I’ve made over the last year. I made a decision to attend Purdue University, and represent our home state over three years ago. It was a decision that I put a lot of time and effort into. A decision that I never swayed from. However, sometimes the best plans don’t work out, and you have to deviate from them to do what’s best for your future. After many thoughts and prayers I’ve decided to enter my name in the transfer portal.”

New head coach Ryan Walters and offensive coordinator Graham Harrell are expected to turn to the transfer portal to find a quarterback.
