One on One with N.C State commit Tyler Lewis
By: Kevin Duffy
As a basketball player and people say you have Steve Nash like vision, you know you're something special. 2012 North Carolina State commit, Tyler Lewis, gets that compliment on the regular.
If you just see one of his mixtapes you would be blown away by the indescribable passes he makes. Tyler Lewis is the 8th best point guard in his class according to ESPN.
If you think the North Carolina product is just a distributor you should definitely not be taken lightly especially after he broke Chris Paul’s scoring record in this year’s Frank Spencer Holiday Classic.
I had the opportunity to speak with Tyler for this edition of KD One on One.

TL: I fell in love with North Carolina State ever since I was little growing up down there. They are also a great program with great talent.

TL:It's going to be great, Joe and Tyler are both great athletes and it's going to be fun.
KD:Any player you are trying to convince to go to NC State with you?
TL:Yes, T.J Warren. T.J's a great athlete on the wing and if we have him we'll be at the top of the ACC.
