Ex-Purdue WR Amad Anderson Jr. announces transfer destination
Earlier this month, Purdue wide receiver Amad Anderson Jr. decided to enter his name in the NCAA transfer portal. Already, he’s found a new home to continue his college football career.
Anderson announced on Twitter that he has committed to continue his career at Temple. He decided to hit the portal after totaling just 5 catches for 19 yards during the 2020 season. He had been much more productive for the Boilermakers during the 2019 campaign and was emerging as a priority target for the Purdue offense.
The move to Temple will be a stop closer to home for the Staten Island native. Anderson will have three years of eligibility remaining when he joins the Owls.

During the 2019 campaign, Anderson totaled 343 yards and 3 touchdowns on 31 catches for the Boilers. His most productive game as a Boilermaker came against Northwestern last season, when he caught 9 passes for 67 yards and a touchdown in a 24-22 victory.
