Purvis Sets New Timetable
Rodney Purvis is likely the #1 target for the Wolfpack in 2012. His blend of size, speed and scoring ability has every coach in the nation drooling over his talents. But only Duke, Missouri or NC State will have the privilege of welcoming him to their university. We reported earlier that Purvis set an announcement date of February 14th (both Valentine’s Day and his birthday), however recently Evan Daniel from Scout.com said (via Pack Pride’s twitter) that has changed and now he’ll be making his final choice at the end of August.
All we’re hearing is positives when it comes to NC State and Rodney Purvis. Rodney likes Coach Gottfried and likes playing close to home. Duke is a player but those we’ve talked to around Duke (writers/reporters) have all said that they feel State leads regardless of what Purvis is saying publicly. Here is what Daniels had to say in a recent free article.
