Charles Allen, who committed to Purdue on June 13, announced Wednesday he has decided to not play college football after all.
“Purdue Is Hands Down One Of The Best Programs In The Nation But College Football Is Not Something I Have Interest In Anymore And I’m Extremely Sorry,” Allen wrote on Twitter.

Allen, an offensive guard, was a 3-star recruit, according to the 247Sports Composite. He was the No. 54 offensive guard in the nation and the No. 11 player in Kentucky for the class of 2017. He chose Purdue over offers from 10 other programs, including Syracuse and Miami University.
The exact reason for Allen’s decision to not play college football is unclear. His decommitment shouldn’t cripple the Boilermakers, who have three other offensive lineman — Will Bramel, Jimmy McKenna and Eric Miller — in the class.
