Name: #18 Tyler Lewis
School: Albemarle (NC) High School
StateFans Evaluation: Starting kicker for three state championship teams at Albemarle. At 6'2 and 235 pounds, Tyler doesn't have the typical build of a kicker. He's tall and strong with a frame closer to a linebacker. He has a VERY strong leg and good accuracy for a placekicker. He will likely begin his career as a punter because of Austin Herbert's departure, but Lewis will be given every opportunity to compete for the kicking position as well. NC State's second commitment in the 2004 class, Tyler filled a very big need for the Wolfpack.
