Rodney Purvis Stays In-State

Rodney Purvis (Upper Room Academy, NC) is the latest NC State commitment choosing the Wolfpack over scholarship offers from Memphis, UConn and VCU.

Since his decommitted from Louisville, most speculated that he could join his close friend Tyrek Coger and assistant Tim Fuller, who recruited him to Louisville.

That was all put to rest once he dropped Missouri from his finalist and chose to stay in-state and attend the school his grandmother favored for sometime.

He joins current commit Tyler Lewis in the backcourt and as the only two members of the Wolfpacks 2012 recruiting class.

NC State is still in play for small forward TJ Warren who is visiting this weekend along with Stanford Robinson and Josh Hart. Purvis will also join the group and could do some recruiting of his own.

NC State's class with just Lewis and Purvis is a great one. Head coach Mark Gottfried has done a fabulous job of recruiting thus far and is putting together a special class in his first year at the helm.
