Commit Date: January 30, 2015
Recruiting Scene: Tyrone Riley was a major target for NC State heading into his senior season, as he visited the Wolfpack over the summer. However, he had several options and felt more comfortable with Kentucky, who landed his commitment in the fall.
The Wolfpack's pursuit continued, and that led to a mid-January official visit. After the trip, Riley still visited Kentucky, but he ultimately switched his commitment to the Wolfpack.
Picked NC State Over: Kentucky, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Utah, and Wisconsin among others
Scouting Report: “A long, lean defensive end similar to current Wolfpacker Pharoah McKever, Riley has all the tools you look for in a weakside defensive end. He's explosive off the edge, can make plays in space against the read-option and has high football IQ. NC State made him a priority because of his physical upside, and he has plenty of that.” - Pack Pride Scouting Report
