When they first arrive on a college campus, most freshman football players are simply trying to survive team workouts.
Rondale Moore isn’t most freshmen. A four-star wide receiver out of Louisville, Kentucky, Moore has been dropping jaws at Purdue football’s summer workouts. Just watch Moore, who weighs 180 pounds and measures in at 5-foot-9, crush this 600-pound squat:
We last saw Moore hit 530 pounds last spring, so he’s been working up to this incredible accomplishment for quite some time. At Nike’s “The Opening” event around that same time, he clocked a 4.33 40-Yard Dash and a 42-inch Vertical Jump. Those are numbers most NFL players can only dream of, and Moore posted them when he was in high school.
Don’t sleep on Purdue football. Head coach Jeff Brohm, who took over the program last season and led them to their first bowl game since 2012, has the Boilermakers heading in the right direction. And with uber-talented recruits like Moore on board, Purdue could make some serious noise in the Big Ten and beyond.
