247Sports national recruiting analyst Steve Wiltfong logged an interesting Crystal Ball projection Saturday: a prediction that four-star wide receiver Rondale Moore will flip his commitment from Texas to Purdue.
Moore — a 5-foot-8 prospect from Trinity High School in Louisville — is ranked by 247Sports as one of the Top 100 overall players nationally in the 2018 recruiting class, and that website has him as the No. 17 wide receiver in the country and the No. 1 player in the state of Kentucky.
He committed to Texas in June, but Moore had a good relationship with Purdue’s coaching staff before that pledge, and Boilermakers Coach Jeff Brohm is already recruiting his home state of Kentucky hard.
UK is also expected to continue recruiting Moore — one of the frontrunners for Mr. Football honors — up until national signing day.
