No. 27 Jr PG Jamie Lewis Decommits From NC State

ESPN No. 27 ranked high school junior point guard Jamie Lewis has decommitted from NC State.

 

“I just wanted to see what comes about after this season,” Lewis told newsobserver.com. “To see if there are any better situations out there, because I committed kind of early. I just want to make sure.”

 

“[I also want] a one point-guard type offense,” added Lewis. “I know NC State is more like a combo guard offense, which is fine with me, but I feel like a pure point guard, so I want to see if any school out there will offer me that type of look.”

 

The 6-3 point guard averaged 15 points, 8 assists, and 2 steals for Westlake HS (Atlanta, GA) as a sophomore in 2015-16, leading the team to the state championship.

 

But Lewis was hampered by shoulder and ankle injuries this year and didn’t play many games in his junior season.

 

When he committed to NC State back in June, his Westlake high school coach Darron Rogers said the Wolfpack had 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.”

 

Now it looks like another program will be getting Lewis’ services, though he said he would still be open to potentially returning to NC State.

 

Before signing with the Wolfpack, Lewis was considering the likes of Florida, Virginia, Georgia Tech, and Baylor.

 

Stay tuned.
