NC State fine without Purvis?

The transfer of freshman guard Rodney Purvis from NC State to Connecticut will be a blow to the Wolfpack. However, Purvis began seeing reduced playing time over the last third of the season so Mark Gottfried's squad should be fine without the local McDonald's All American. Or as fine as a team can be losing two players (juniors C.J. Leslie and Lorenzo Brown) to the NBA draft and seniors Richard Howell and Scott Wood to graduation.
