College football coaches love versatility. Having players on the roster who can play multiple positions is a huge advantage on the football field.
In the B1G, you’ll find some of the most versatile athletes in the sport.
Recently, 247Sports produced its list of the 10 most versatile players in college football. Three names were from the B1G, and you could probably guess which players were included.
Purdue receiver Rondale Moore, Michigan linebacker Khaleke Hudson and Penn State receiver KJ Hamler all made the cut.
Moore and Hamler have already showed off their impressive versatility, being used in multiple facets for their respective teams. Both players excelled at the receiver position and both were also heavily used on special teams. On occasion, both players were also known to take a handoff or two to throw off the defense.
Moore finished the season with 2,215 all-purpose yards for the Boilermakers. Hamler totaled 1,417 yards for the Nittany Lions.
Hudson might be the surprise pick of the three, but he certainly earned a mention. The linebacker has already been compared to former Michigan star Jabrill Peppers and covers the field well. He’s just as likely to register a sack as deflect a pass. This year, he’ll be one of the anchors for the Wolverines’ defense.
Hudson ended last fall with 44 tackles, 3.5 for loss and two blocked kicks.
Keep an eye on all three guys this fall. They should provide plenty of entertainment each and every week of the college football season.
