Wolfpack has 3 McDonald's All-Americans

4 posts in this topic

N.C. State might be looking up at Duke and North Carolina in the ACC standings, but the Blue Devils and Tar Heels are chasing the Wolfpack on the recruiting trail. At least when it comes to McDonald's All-Americans.

Three N.C. State basketball recruits have been selected to play in the 35th McDonald's All-American boys basketball game in Chicago on March 28.

The Wolfpack recruits are Rodney Purvis, a guard from Raleigh's Upper Room Academy; Tyler Lewis, a guard who played at Forsyth Country Day in 2010-11 before arriving at Mouth of Wilson (Va.) Oak Hill this season; and T.J. Warren, a forward who played at Durham Riverside and Raleigh Word of God before going to Brewster Academy for this season.

Can't complain with Mark Gottfried's recruiting so far....

I watched the YouTube video for all three of these players and Purvis and Warren might be deadly together. Tyler Lewis though could go either way I think.... he is so small and slight I don't know if he can handle the ACC size opponents.

Tyler Lewis's ball handling is phenomenal. He's gone up against elite talent all throughout high school and has always excelled. I have no reason to believe he won't do the same in college.

In fact, I think Purvis and Warren will be better players because of his presence.

It will be very interesting to see how Tyler Lewis plays in the ACC, he is an incredible ball-handler and passer. I think he will be a solid point guard.

    • My question is whether we're sold enough on him to trade up with Jacksonville to ensure we get him. What would that take? I'd offer them our late 2nd rounder that we got from the Pats, take it or leave it. No way they trade down just for our 3rd round comp. pick and no way Gettleman gives up our original 2nd rounder. I maintain that the best case scenario for the Panthers is for at least 1 QB to go in the top-6, either to the 49ers or Jets. Jacksonville could opt for Solomon Thomas or Jonathan Allen over Fournette, but not likely anyone else other than Garrett, who is going 1st overall without a doubt. Would also be helpful for the Titans to go safety over corner, leaving the Jets with the option to take Lattimore. 1. CLE: Myles Garrett
      2. SF: Mitchell Trubisky
      3. CHI: Jonathan Allen
      4. JAX: Solomon Thomas
      5. TEN: Malik Hooker
      6. NYJ: Marshon Lattimore
      7. SD: Jamal Adams
      8. CAR: Leonard Fournette
