— NC State sophomore Tyler Lewis has decided to transfer, NC State athletic communications said Friday.

"I'd like to thank NC State, my teammates and coaches, and the Wolfpack Nation for the past two years. While I will be finishing my career at another school, I will always be grateful for the opportunity I had at NC State," Lewis said in the release.

The 5-11 point guard started 18 games for NC State this season, including the last 14 contests of the season. Lewis averaged 4.4 points and 3.8 assists per game.

"I wish Tyler the best," NC State head coach Mark Gottfried said.

    This one is hard to believe. Great young man and player. I wish him the ultimate best in his new goals and dreams. Someone ticked him off. Maybe his parents wanted him to move on. We shall read more soon; I'm sure.

    Well, I didn't see that coming. I wonder how much TJ's likely departure had to do with this decision. More likely is the real possibility that Cat Barber will improve and take most of the minutes.

    NC State will miss Tyler Lewis. Wish him the best. Really hate to see this kid leave the program.....

    "I wish Tyler the best,"

    Wow, I think a "No Comment" might have shown more gratitude than that...

    Stunned! He beat out Cat Barber and is now leaving? Incredible. Cannot understand this move.

    Not exactly NBA material..a roll player at best. But should do well in a lesser conference.

    This is kind of a head scratcher.

    two burger boys in two years - they ain't comin to State to share time - you share time at the blue bloods UNC, KY, Duke - State is not a strong enough program to share time at.

    Rumor on the street is that Cat is also transferring

    Not hard to believe: He was a lower division starting PG. End of story.
