Purdue WR Rondale Moore Opts Out

Purdue wide receiver Rondale Moore will opt out of the 2020 collegiate football season, as he announced via his Twitter account.

It’s still unclear whether a college football season will even take place this fall, but we’ve already seen a number of prospective stars decide that taking the field isn’t worth the risk. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, it’s entirely reasonable to assume that more NCAA stars will join Moore, Miami defensive end Gregory Rousseau, Penn State linebacker Micah Parsons, Minnesota wideout Rashod Bateman in sitting out the year.

Moore was a breakout star during his freshman year in 2018, posting 114 receptions for 1,258 yards and 12 touchdowns while also adding value in the rushing game and on special teams. Dane Brugler of The Athletic currently ranks Moore as the third-best wideout in the 2020 class, noting the ex-Boilermaker has accrued an amazing two-thirds of his yardage after the catch.
