According to Jeff Goodman of Fox Sports/YardBarker and Evan Daniels of Scout, 2012 5 star point guard Rodney Purvis has verbally committed to Louisville.
Purvis is considered the second best player in the class of 2012 according to Rivals. He holds offers from Baylor, Duke, Georgia Tech, Maryland, Memphis, North Carolina, North Carolina State, South Carolina, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest, and Xavier.
This is HUGE for Louisville! The 2011 class will be top ten and the first commit for the 2012 class is considered one of the best in the country. The hire of Tim Fuller is definitely paying off!
Purvis and Ricardo Ledo will visit on Dec.31 for the game against Kentucky. Let’s hope Purvis can convince him to join him and come to Louisville.<
