Manuel Allen, a 2018 4-star wide receiver from Centennial High School in Corona, California committed to Nebraska just before the Huskers’ spring game, not long after 2018 cornerback Brendan “Bookie” Radley-Hiles did the same thing Friday night. Both players are in Lincoln for the spring game.
Allen is a 6-foot-2, 170-pound wide receiver who has a composite score of 92.7 according to Hail Varsity’s recruiting rankings.
Allen is the sixth member of Nebraska’s 2018 recruiting class and the second wide receiver, joining 4-star Eric Fuller, another California native. Allen, Fuller, Radley-Hiles and Beatrice tight end Cameron Jurgens give the Huskers four 4-star commitments already in their 2018 class.
Jacob is in his third year with Hail Varsity covering Husker athletics. He has also written extensively for SB Nation’s Bright Side of the Sun and The Creightonian. His love of basketball can best be described as an obsession and if you need to find him, he’s probably in a gym somewhere watching, coaching or playing hoops.
