In a long-anticipated decision, Louisville (Kent.) Trinity wide receiver Rondale Moore officially decommitted from the Texas Longhorns on Tuesday morning:
December 19, 2017
Moore opted to open up his recruitment once again after taking an official visit to Purdue last weekend. When he makes his final choice at the 2018 US Army All-American game in early January, the Boilermakers are the favorite.
So it appears that that opportunity to remain closer to home — West Lafayette is less than three hours from Louisville — and play for a head coach in Jeff Brohm who also graduated from Trinity High School, is an opportunity that Moore doesn’t want to pass up.
And while speedy, undersized slot receivers like Moore haven’t had much success in recent years at Texas, the Kentucky product is a unique athlete. He posted the highest SPARQ rating in the country after running a 4.33 40-yard dash.
Now the ‘Horns will have about six weeks to continue evaluating other options at slot receiver after suffering the second decommitment at the position during the 2018 cycle and missing on Bears commit Craig Williams on Monday evening.
