Purvis, who committed to Louisville last December, has decided to reconsider his college options in the wake of Tim Fuller's departure. Fuller, a former Louisville assistant who recruited Purvis for Rick Pitino's program, left the Cardinals to join Frank Haith's staff at Missouri last month.
"I just want to develop a relationship with the new staff," Purvis said. "Louisville isn't out or nothing like that."
Since a major staff change at Louisville - Rick Pitino had to replace assistants Steve Masiello, Tim Fuller and Mark Lieberman this spring - the Cardinals have lost both committed 2012 prospects. Negus Webster-Chan, a Top 50 forward prospect from Huntington (WV) Prep, re-opened his recruitment last month.
Now, Pitino's new assistants - Richard Pitino, Wyking Jones and Kevin Keatts - will attempt to assemble a top-ranked 2012 recruiting class from scratch.
