N.C. State, Miami add to sophomore guard's offers

Tyler Lewis was a very popular young man last Friday.

The Forsyth Country Day (Lewisville) sophomore point guard received a scholarship offer from N.C. State in the afternoon and from Miami on Friday night.

Lewis, 5-foot-11, 160-pounds, already has offers from Virginia Tech, UNC-Charlotte, East Carolina, Appalachian State, Richmond, Virginia Commonwealth, High Point, Baylor plus N.C. State and Miami. Former Wake Forest coach Dino Gaudio had offered as well.

FCD coach Craig Dawson said Lewis is improving and getting stronger, but the coach believes the recruiting interest is picking up because Lewis is playing so well this spring in club tournaments and was outstanding in Dave Telep's Carolina Challenge.

"I think he is getting out there more," Dawson said.

Lewis plays club ball with Team Loaded. Lewis scored 31 points in the club team's recent victory over the highly ranked CP3 All-Stars.

Lewis averaged 20 points, 8.6 assists, 3.4 rebounds and 1.8 steals last season at Forsyth Country Day. He made 57 percent of his shots from the field.

"He has a lot of options," Dawson said. "It is good to have a plethora of offers."
