Tyler Lewis to transfer from N.C. State


Tyler Lewis is transferring out of the N.C. State program, the school announced in a release late on Saturday night.

“I’d like to thank NC State, my teammates and coaches and the Wolfpack Nation for the past two years,” Lewis said in a statement. “While I will be finishing my career at another school, I will always be grateful for the opportunity at NC State.

Lewis, a sophomore point guard, averaged 4.4 points and 3.8 assists for the Wolfpack this season. He moved into the starting lineup for the last 14 games of the season.

“I wish Tyler the best,” NC State head coach Mark Gottfried said.

Lewis was a top 50 recruit and a McDonald’s All-American coming out of Oak Hill Academy, but freshman Cat Barber appears to be the future of the point guard spot for the Wolfpack. With Lewis transferring, Gottfried’s loaded 2012 recruiting class is no more. Rodney Purvis transferred after last season while T.J. Warren is entering the NBA Draft.
