Following an impressive showing in his freshman campaign, former Wellington guard, Marvel Allen, has decided to transfer to Calvary Christian Academy (Fort Lauderdale, FL).
Allen, who averaged 18.2 points, 4.3 assists, and 7.9 rebounds per contest last season, made the announcement via social media on Friday.
“Not going to be long but first off I just want to thank God for what he’s done in my life and different opportunities he gave me. Also, I would like the thank my mom and dad for being there for me every step of my career and guiding me in the right direction. I had a good run and season at Wellington High and the friendships I built with my teammates and the staff there will last for a lifetime. After constantly praying and talking with my family, I’ll be starting my next chapter at Calvary Christian.”
The 6-foot-4 guard holds offers from LSU, Virginia Tech and USF. Still, Oklahoma State, Dayton, UCF, Temple and FGCU are all attracted to the nation’s No. 46 rising sophomore, according to Prep Hoops.
Joining a loaded roster, including Greg Glenn, Taylor and Tyler Hendricks, Dylan Canoville and Carl Cherenfant, the Eagles have formed into one of the most exciting teams in the South Florida area.
The Eagles concluded their 2019-2020 campaign with a 21-8 record, as they fell short of a 3A regional championship run, falling to Santa Fe Catholic in the semifinals, 48-41.
