NC State has 3 McDonald’s All-Americans, including the smallest one: Tyler Lewis

Standing at just 5-foot-11 and 165 pounds, Tyler Lewis may not look like a McDonald’s All-American.  Put Lewis on the basketball court with any opponent, any size, and he’ll prove to be one of the nation’s best prospects.
“(Lewis) had a terrific senior season,” said Evan Daniels, a national recruiting analyst for “Oak Hill doesn’t play a soft schedule. He really proved himself on a big stage against a lot of big opponents.”
It’s a sizey task for the undersized point guard to battle with the nation’s best high-school players, and will only become more difficult as Lewis moves on to North Carolina State, where he’ll likely be counted on as the Wolfpack’s floor general.
