WATCH: Purdue's Rondale Moore torches Northwestern's defense
Rondale Moore decommitted from Texas and later gave his commitment to Jeff Brohm and Purdue.
That decision is already paying off for the former 4-star receiver and the Boilermakers.
Down 14-7 in the first half to Northwestern, Purdue dialed up a simple jet sweep, hoping to get a first down and keep a drive alive. But Moore had other plans.
Instead, the true freshman turned on the jetpacks and torched the Wildcats defense, taking the ball 76 yards for a touchdown.
It was his second touchdown of the day.

Moore was a special talent, but nobody would’ve imagined he could’ve had this much success so early in his career.
In just his first game, the star freshman is already raising eyebrows in West Lafayette.
