According to Rivals recruiting analyst Jerry Meyer, Rodney Purvis has not had any contact with the Louisville coaching staff since he decided to reopen his recruiting a week ago. Purvis’s list of schools as of right now is Florida, Duke, N.C. State, and Kentucky. Louisville is still on his list, but I’m not sure if they are still his number one.
I find it hard to believe that Coach Pitino and staff would just completely stop pursuing Rodney Purvis, but who knows? A lot of people assumed it was just a matter of time before he decommitted, but I can assure you Coach Pitino was a little surprised. A couple of weeks before Purvis publicly announced his decommitment, Pitino has spent some time in North Carolina talking with Rodney and his mother. As far as I know, when he left Raleigh, he felt pretty confident in Purvis’s committment to him and the program.
I really hope we see Rodney in Louisville, but at this point it’s not looking good. Sounds like a lot has changed in the past week.<
