NC State got some good news on Friday night when wide receiver C.J. Riley announced his commitment to the Wolfpack. Riley had been considered a Nebraska lean (and that was the majority Crystal Ball pick), but it appears his visit the weekend of the Syracuse game was enough to solidify his decision to pick the Pack.
After discussing it with my family I'm blessed to say that I have officially committed to NC State #Wolfpack #Pack16 pic.twitter.com/vKVvvBR06L— CJ Riley (@CJ_RILEY16) November 28, 2015
Riley is a consensus three-star prospect from North Broward Prep in Coconut Creek, FL (ew, coconuts gross). He is listed at 6'4 or 6'5, and anywhere between 180 and 188 pounds, depending on the recruiting service. Scout also has him listed with a 4.64 40-yard dash.
According to Rivals, he holds offers from West Virginia, Nebraska (obvs.), UCF, Pittsburgh, Duke, Purdue, Rutgers, Georgia Tech, and Cincinnati, among others.
This looks like a nice addition to the Pack's receiving corps, and one that was sorely needed. I've been praying to the football gods to send us a tall wide receiver, and here we got one. That's the exciting part about this addition--State needs to get bigger at WR, and this is a positive step in that direction.
