Purvis transfers to UConn


Former NC State guard Rodney Purvis, a 6'3 McDonald's High School All-American from Raleigh NC, has announced his transfer to UConn.


After sitting out next season due to NCAA transfer rules for athletes, Purvis will give UConn coach Kevin Ollie another talented scoring threat at the guard position as the Huskies head into play in the newly formed American Athletic Conference. Purvis averaged over 8 points and 2 rebounds per game this season for the Wolfpack. Purvis has 3 years of eligibility remaining after playing just one season at NC State.
