First-year North Carolina State head coach Mark Gottfried led the Wolfpack to the Sweet 16 in his first season. The program’s is bound for future success with a loaded recruiting class. Three NC State signees are set to play in the McDonald’s All-American game.

Future Wolfpack point guard Tyler Lewis showcased why he should be the team’s starting point guard for the future. He stole the show in the skills competition on Monday night, completing the basketball obstacle course in 31.2 seconds, edging Indiana Hoosiers signee Yogi Ferrell.

The course consisted of a chest pass through a hoop, then a bounce pass, a three-point shot, then another chest pass, followed by a dribbling drill, weaving through targets, then capped off by a two-pointer. Lewis completed the course without a flaw.

Lewis, a 5-foot-11 point guard, transferred into high-school basketball powerhouse Oak Hill Academy during the summer, leading to steady recruiting interest. He credits the transfer for his invitation to the McDonald’s All-American Game.

“I didn’t think it could happen last summer before I transferred to Oak Hill,” said Lewis.

Lewis is joined in Chicago by future Wolfpack teammates Rodney Purvis and T.J. Warren. He is ranked a four-star recruit by Scout.com.
