07:10 AM ET 05.17 | It hasn't taken him long in Storrs, but Rodney Purvis has already made quite an impression in his first week at UConn. [Purvis'] first game is 18 months away, but he is already in attack mode. "I kind of reframed everything in my mind," Purvis said Thursday after a one-hour workout with new teammate Ryan Boatright and assistant coach Karl Hobbs. "I was calm, relaxed. Now my whole mind-set is different. I'm in the gym a lot, my mind-set is to try to destroy -- I know they're my teammates, but I've got to push these guys for the season. I'm only going to be in practice, but I'm going to treat these practices like they're my games." Purvis, who transferred from N.C. State on April 5, will have to sit out next season.

Don't they have a picture of this guy that doesn't look like Jackie Childs from Seinfeld?
