Coming off a strong summer playing for Team Loaded, Lewis drew a number of interested parties. On Friday during an unofficial visit to North Carolina State, Lewis gave a verbal commitment.
Lewis' head coach at Statesville (N.C.) Forsyth Country Day confirmed the news.
"After visiting with the coaching staff, players and academic support staff, Tyler and his parents [Rick and Margaret] felt that NC State was the right fit for him," Dawson told Scout.com.
A 5-foot-11, 160-pound guard, Lewis averaged 20 points, 8. 6 rebounds and 3.4 rebounds per game.
Lewis, a four-star prospect, is the first 2012 prospect to give Sidney Lowe a verbal pledge.
