Or the quarterback from Ohio State or Oklahoma or Georgia.It’s the wide receiver from Purdue.ESPN has named Boilermakers WR Rondale Moore the country’s most “exciting” player as we approach the season. It’s hard to argue with this:1. Rondale Moore, WR, Purdue: Maybe the most talented player Purdue has had since Drew Brees, Moore was a monster last year. As a freshman, Moore was the Paul Hornung Award recipient as the nation’s most versatile player, breaking the single-season school record for all-purpose yards (2,215) and the school record for most all-purpose yards in a game (313). He tied the school record for most 100-yard receiving games (seven), and caught 11 or more passes in a game six times. He had 1,471 yards of total offense (113.2 per game) and 744 return yards last year with 14 total touchdowns. Of his nation-leading 114 catches last year, 51 went for first downs, and he led the nation with 907 yards after the catch (7.96 per catch).Moore is coming off a brilliant freshman season, in which he caught 114 passes for 1,258 yards and 12 touchdowns.The former four-star recruit had his best game in Purdue’s biggest win of the season, catching 12 passes for 170 yards and 2 touchdowns in the upset win against Ohio State.What does Moore have in store for his sophomore year? We can’t wait to find out.last_img read more
