There’s no question that Purdue superstar Rondale Moore is the reason so many fans filled Ross-Ade Stadium last fall. He’s also a huge reason why the Boilermakers have seen a nice increase in season ticket sales for 2019.
After just one year in West Lafayette, Moore is already a fan favorite. Of course, winning the B1G Freshman and Wide Receiver of the Year awards and being named an All-American as a true freshman is a good reason for all the attention. And after Purdue’s spring game, Moore was once again the most popular guy on the field.
Moore didn’t have a huge role in Saturday’s spring game, but following the scrimmage, fans lined up to get the rising sophomore’s autography. That line was pretty darn long, too. Mike Carmin of the Journal & Courier captured a photo:

This is awesome. #Purdue’s autograph session ended nearly 30 minutes ago and Rondale Moore is still signing.
Props to Jared Sparks, Tyler Hamilton and Jordan Bonner for sticking around too. pic.twitter.com/A3jSMdi8sQ

Moore signed every single autograph, too.
Moore will once again be the focal point of Purdue’s offense in 2019. Last fall, he totaled an NCAA-best 114 receptions and led the B1G in receiving yards (1,258) and touchdowns (12).
If last season was any indication, Moore will likely go down as one of the top receivers in Purdue history. A lot of Boilermaker fans walked away with a pretty special autograph on Saturday afternoon.
