Purvis not in attendance on first day of class

Posted August 16, 2012

— Classes started for North Carolina State University Thursday but incoming basketball player Rodney Purvis was not in attendance. 

Purvis is not permitted to attend classes until he receives clearance from the NCAA eligibility center. 

“We are working on it. His status is still under review,” NC State Executive Senior Associate Athletic Director Chris Kingston told WRAL Thursday.

The NCAA is giving an "extended review" to Purvis' high school since his class is the first to graduate from Upper Room Christian Academy. 

The NCAA requires that student-athletes pass 16 core courses in high school. If the NCAA rules that Upper Room did not provide all of the 16 core courses, Purvis would not receive his NCAA clearance. NC State could then ask for an initial-eligibility waiver on Purvis' behalf. A committee, made up of representatives from Division one and two schools, would hear the appeal. They could partially approve the waiver (allowing a student-athlete to receive aid or receive aid and practice), fully approve it or deny it.

Student-athletes can practice and receive athletic aid while initial-eligibility waiver requests are pending, subject to some restrictions.

    Quite a gem, TBK -- thanks!

    I hate this for this young man. State did a smart thing...actually the only thing to do. Hopefully, he can be cleared to enroll soon. The NCAA has had enough time in my opinion.

  • InTheNo Aug 17, 2012

    Couldn't he take advantage of the Inter-Institutional opportunity and enroll in some AFAM courses in Chapel Hill? John Swofford may step in and help with it.

    I almost forgot to mention - this is not a unc/State thing. While there is the usual bickering back and forth, there have been a number of unc fans posting here questioning this and supporting RP.

    From this Wolfpack fan - Thank You.

  • Got Peart Aug 17, 2012

    The reason RP isn't going to class, is if for some reason he isn't cleared and is going to class it could impact his eligibility (State fans remember Tramain Hall). Better to keep him out as a precaution.

    Supposedly those "in the know" feel this may be over soon.

    In all honesty - if it were not for the Spain trip, this would be a non-issue. NCAA is still trying to clear a Clemson football player.

    For those attacking RP - shame. This is a kid who is humble, works hard, and maintained a GPA over 3.0 in HS, qualifed SAT/ACT scores, and passed NCAA elgibility. This is about the high school. As many have said RP is part of Upper Room's first full graduating class. They have historically been K-9, but have since added K-12. RP has been going there for years! He could have bounced around, but stayed there.

    He is truly heartbroken about this. He WANTS to be in class, he WANTS to play ball with his teammates. and I beleive it will happen soon. It is August, and Upper Room staff probably were hard to reach since it is summer vacation and all.

    Not even remotely true. First of all, he is not in class. Secondly, NC State -- without a doubt -- made sure he did NOT go to class.

    You know, kinda the way it works at Carolina with their students that HAVE been cleared to play and enroll.

  • Deacons Aug 17, 2012

    If the NCAA is so concerned about academics, they need to be more timely in making decisions regarding whether or not a student can attend classes!!! He is missing valuable classroom time because of the NCAA.

  • mojo nailing rb Aug 17, 2012

    Well no doubt he is not eligible and will have to repeat 12th grade at a regular high school. Nobody should be surprised State tried to slide him into class without him being qualified.

  • Boogalooboy Aug 17, 2012

    well panther boy, if the ncaa is holding him back regarding academic issues then there is mystery in the air....and that is a fact....
