Rondale Moore opts back in
Purdue star WR Rondale Moore opted out on the 2020 season after it looked like the Big Ten wasn’t going to play. Now he wants back in. He was hurt last year after catching 29 passes for 387 yards and two touchdowns in four games, but made 114 grabs for 1,258 yards and 12 scores as a freshman. The blazer is likely a top 15 overall draft pick.
