Willie Allen’s nomadic college career has featured many twists and turns.

The latest came Thursday, when the offensive tackle made a surprising revelation and announced his commitment to Michigan nine days before the Wolverines play their first game.

On Friday, a source inside the Michigan football program said Allen, who left Louisiana Tech and entered the NCAA transfer portal Monday, won’t suit up this fall after he already declared his intention to skip the season.

"With so much going on in this country, my health and COVID-19 impacting me personally, I have decided to opt out," Allen wrote Sept. 29 on Twitter.
