The latest addition to NC State's 2015 football recruiting class is Florida linebacker Riley Nicholson, who committed to the Wolfpack on Friday over UCF and West Virginia. Nicholson also had offers from Purdue, Georgia Tech, Syracuse, Wake Forest, Iowa State, and Minnesota, among others. Nicholson sounded like a State lean earlier this week and made it official on Twitter.

I suppose that was only a matter of time. I hope those things don't make any noise, lest everybody in the Murphy Center end up going crazy before the start of the season. Next I'd look for them to start carrying around bottles labeled "good juice."
Nicholson, who is 6'0" and weighs 220 pounds according to 247Sports, is a consensus three-star prospect, just like every other member of NC State's 2015 recruiting class at this point. He became the eighth member of the class with his commitment, and the fifth prospect on the defensive side.
