    Could Duke be in the mix for Purvis?

    I think both Duke and NC State are in the mix.

    I've heard that he's been seen around Raleigh quite a bit.

    Hard to say no to a top 10 recruit but in the end two words will prevent Purvis coming to Duke...Rasheed Sulaimon.

    No inside info, but Duke has to be counting scholarships at this point, esp. if Daniels ends up in Durham.

    Could that be because he lives in Raleigh?

    I honestly have no idea where he ends up. Would be a big get for Gottfried after the Harrow transfer.

    At this point I can't see how/why Duke would actively recruit him. I know that he is a very good player but when he enters college Duke will have 2 true pg's and 2-3 lead/combo guards already on the roster. Additionally, we are looking to be very tight in the scholarship department. There are already scholarship offers out to at least Parker and Shabazz with only one slot currently available which may be taken by Daniels. So in order to sign those two we are going to have some early entries or transfers. I don't see how Purvis could bump himself up the priority list enough to get an offer.

    ^^No. I've heard that he has relationships with some people from State, like Tyler Lewis, Lorenzo Brown, and Julius Hodge.

    I've also heard that Purvis is a top priority for Gottfried.

    Agree 100%. He may get a look, but I doubt it gets too far.

    Duke is/has been in contact with Purvis. He was one of Duke's earliest offers to the 2012 class (and is one of three outstanding uncommitted offers along with Tony Parker and Shabazz Muhammad.) It will be interesting to see how this whole thing progresses. The scholarship numbers are certainly getting tight...

    What about Deandre Daniels? I know he is 2011 but was inquiring about the three uncommitted outstanding offers.

    Getting tight! Having more offers out than available scholarships is already tight. Now I know that things are likely to open up a little with the expected departures of Rivers and MP2. Question though, are you suggesting that Purvis' offer is still on the table? I would have thought that it disappeared when he committed to Louisville. Also, how do you see him fitting in with all the other guards or is possible that it become a Purvis or Shabazz type situation?

    When Rodney was asked about Duke shortly after he committed to Louisville, he said something to the effect that he liked Duke but that Duke's backcourt is just too crowded. That situation has not changed (I know we lost Irving, but he would not have been considered in Rodney's calculations for the 2012-2013 season). With Ryan Harrow's transfer, there are some newfound minutes at State, and I would bet that Rodney will end up there (if it is, in fact, between Duke and State).

    I don't believe that offers disappear and then reappear, but players are obviously prioritized and looked at differently if they commit to another school.

    Not sure on the fitting in thing. Probably too early to tell. Rodney isn't looking to make a decision before the fall.

    For some reason, his name has a bad feeling for me. Maybe it has to do with 1986?

    That would be doing him a disservice.
