Is 6'3 Rodney Purvis The Best Player In The Class Of 2012? (via Hoopmixtape)
Louisville just received a verbal commitment from the #1 PG in the class of 2012. Welcome to Louisville Rodney. Go Cards.
“With all the other schools I felt like they had other players they were recruiting before me,” Purvis said. “I was Louisville’s No. 1 priority and they made me feel that way. I just wanted to return them the favor and choose Louisville.”
Purvis, who recently switched from the 2013 class to the 2012, cited his relationship with the coaching staff and Louisville’s future as reasons he went with the Cardinals.
“Over time I gained a great relationship with coach Pitino and the whole entire coaching staff,” Purvis told Scout.com. “I liked everything there on the visit. The AD is very committed to Louisville basketball. I just feel like it’s a great spot and Louisville has a great future.”
Purvis, a five-star prospect, took an unofficial visit to Louisville a few weeks ago and he was especially impressed with the new YUM! Center.
“The arena is great,” Purvis said. “It’s one of the best things I’ve seen, period, and with all the people in there wearing red it made it even better. Just with the overall fan base and support they get from the whole city of Louisville, I’m just excited.”
Me too Rodney, me too.
