ESPN No. 45 ranked high school junior Jamie Lewis has committed to NC State.
The 6-3 point guard averaged 15 points and 8 assists this season for Westlake HS (Atlanta, GA).
The previous year as a sophomore, Lewis averaged 16 points, 8 assists and 2 steals, leading the school to the state championship
“I’ve committed to NC State,” Lewis told Pack Pride. “They have a great coaching staff. [Head] Coach [Kevin Keatts] wants me to come in and have an impact my freshman season. I think I can come in and connect with the rest of the players, help them win. I feel welcome there, and they really welcomed me in.”
His Westlake high school coach Darron Rogers said the Wolfpack have obtained a gem in Lewis.
“I think they are getting one of the best guards in the country,” Rogers told newsobserver.com. “He has a real strong college-ready body, can get to the hole in a crowd with people hanging on him.”
“He probably will be one of the better guards in the program,” added coach Rogers. “Plays a lot like Kyrie Irving. He has all the moves.”
The Wolfpack beat out the likes of Florida, Virginia, Georgia Tech, and Baylor to land Lewis.
