Hearing we are reallllly strong with Woodson. He's visiting OU and Baylor in the upcoming weekends but popular opinion is we lead. I still think we have a really good shot at Randle as well. Marcus Lee just committed to UK so now they have the Harrison twins, Lee, Young, and it sounds like they are really strong for Aaron Gordon who could pop for them as well.

At this point for Randle I think there are 3 players...the Pack, the Gators, and the Jayhawks. I'd be surprised if he joins that dumpster fire in Austin.

Heard that Tyler Lewis has been less than impressive in practice so far. Can any NC State fans confirm/refute that?

I had pretty high hopes for him, but his size/athleticism was always a concern.

I've heard quite the opposite. On the offensive end he's been every bit the player they thought he would be. Excellent court vision, precision passing and he has shown a better ability to shoot the ball than originally thought. Lorenzo is the team leader, but when he's gone, Lewis will be able to make a smooth transition to that role.

He does have quite a ways to go on the defensive end (but that was known before he arrived on campus). Practicing against one of the best PG's he'll see all year every day can only help though.

I'd look for him to get between 10-15 minutes per game this season, mainly spelling Lorenzo when he needs a breather.

Ah okay. Like I said, someone just told me that, so I was curious if it was true or not. I look forward to watching him play.

Agreed, but next year is when I question Lewis with Cat Barber coming in.

I think it will be a good competition to see who wins the spot new year. Cat probably is better equipped athletically to play at this level. However, by all accounts Tyler seems to be a very smart player so it might not be out of the realm of possibility if he learns how to hide some of his short comings this season.

Either way I believe we are going to be set at the PG position for a few years.

Lewis is going to be a GREAT role player for us. I'm not sure his final role with us but come his junior and senior year he's gonna be invaluable to this team.
