The NCAA cleared N.C. State freshman Rodney Purvis on Monday afternoon.
The McDonald's All-American guard will be eligible to play basketball for the Wolfpack this season after the NCAA completed a review of Purvis' high school, Upper Room Christian Academy in Raleigh.
Purvis missed the team's trip to Spain in August and had been in academic limbo while the NCAA conducted an extended investigation into Upper Room. Purvis was a member of the first graduating class at the private Christian school near downtown Raleigh.
Purvis posted the news on his Twitter account on Monday, as did coach Mark Gottfried. Purvis wrote:
"A huge thank you to the NCAA, I really appreciate this opportunity. I kept my faith in the Lord Jesus and he brought me thru.
And Gottfried posted:
"(Purvis) fully cleared by NCAA to participate! Very happy for him. Has handled this with great class."
