NCAA Reviewing Eligibility Of N.C. State’s Purvis PDF Print

North Carolina State freshman guard Rodney Purvis will not accompany the Wolfpack for its exhibition trip to Spain because the NCAA is still reviewing his eligibility. N.C. State says Purvis won’t make this weekend’s trip “due to an ongoing process with the NCAA Eligibility Center.” The school says the NCAA is giving an “extended review” to Purvis’ high school.

Purvis’ class is the first to graduate from Upper Room in Raleigh. The NCAA requires all freshmen to complete that process to play in a summer foreign tour. Wolfpack coach Mark Gottfried says he’s disappointed Purvis won’t join the Wolfpack for the five-game tour. The 6-foot-3 guard is a McDonald’s All-American and was also The Associated Press men’s prep basketball player of the year for North Carolina.
