With the departure of Tim Fuller from Louisville's staff, many believed Purvis would opt to look around. On Monday that belief came to fruition.
"Yes," Purvis responded via text message when asked if he decommitted.
"I just want to develop a relationship with the new staff," he added. "Louisville isn't out or nothing like that."
A standout at Raleigh (N.C.) Upper Room Christian, Purvis is ranked No. 8 overall in the 2012 class.
