WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Rondale Moore is back for more.
The Purdue wide receiver announced on ESPN's College Football Live on Thursday he is opting back in for the 2020 season.
"I think it's important for me to come back and compete and just show what a competitor I am," Moore said. "I think it's important for me just to go out there with my teammates and fulfill the promise I made to them when I came here as a freshman, and to my coaches as well."
Moore opted out on Aug. 6 after the Big Ten postponed the campaign. However, last week the conference announced it was resuming play starting the weekend of Oct. 24.
The Boilermakers are scheduled to open the new season against Iowa.
Moore only appeared in four games last season due to a hamstring injury. He finished with 29 catches for 387 yards and two touchdowns.
As a freshman, earned consensus All-American honors. The New Albany native was the recipient for the Paul Hornung Award given annually to the most versatile player in college football. He also won the Big Ten Receiver and Freshman of the Year.
Moore led the nation in receptions (114) and ranked first in the Big Ten in receiving yards (1258) and touchdowns (12).
