RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina State freshman guard Rodney Purvis says he plans to transfer.
In a statement from the school Monday, Purvis says he enjoyed his time with the hometown Wolfpack but that he felt it was time ``to make a fresh start'' and ``step outside of my comfort zone'' by going elsewhere.
The school has granted Purvis a release to transfer to any school outside the Atlantic Coast Conference except Missouri and Cincinnati, which the program plans to add to its nonconference schedule. The ACC ban includes eventual new arrivals Syracuse, Pittsburgh, Notre Dame and Louisville.
Purvis started 23 of the first 25 games, though his minutes fell off when the Wolfpack elevated freshman forward T.J. Warren into the starting lineup to give the team some size and rebounding.
