According to the Charlotte Observer NC State has made an offer to 2012 guard prospect Tyler Lewis. A star for Forsyth Country Day School as a sophomore, Lewis has picked up offers from several schools in the area in the last few weeks. At 5’10” 160 lbs. his height and weight are somewhat of a question, but from all accounts this kid is a player in the making.
Forsyth Country Day basketball star Tyler Lewis, who lives in the Observer’s coverage area in Statesville, got scholarship offer from N.C. State and Miami Friday.
Lewis, a 5-foot-10 point guard, has offers from Miami, N.C. State, Wake Forest, Virginia Tech, Charlotte, Auburn, Richmond and Virginia Commonwealth.
I got a chance to see Lewis play twice at GSK holiday tournament and from what I could tell this kid is the real deal. I don’t quite understand how he did some of the things I saw, but he got it done. Much like Ryan Harrow, Lewis is a crowd pleaser. His defensive abilities and height (if he doesn’t grow anymore) will be a liability at the ACC level, but if he gets a bit taller and stronger he can play at that level.
Virginia Tech has been on the Lewis bandwagon for a while now and it appears other ACC schools have started getting into the mix. With two seasons left for FCD, Lewis’ recruitment could get very interesting if he grows a couple of inches.
