Rieskamp Commits!

Tom O'Brien has secured his first verbal commitment as head coach of NC State.

Ohio defensive end Jeff Rieskamp committed to the NC State coaches this evening.

"I just committed with them," Rieskamp told Pack Pride. "I called up coach Horton and told him that I wanted to commit. He was really excited to hear that I was going to come down with him at NC State."

Rieskamp, who hails from Elder High School in Cincinnati, visited NC State this past weekend.

"It's an awesome place," he said. "I never imagined how big a facility it would be and how up-to-date it would be. You hear how great it is, but you don't realize it until you go down and experience it yourself."

At 6-3, 235 pounds and boasting 4.6-second speed in the 40-yard dash, Rieskamp finished off 2006 with eight sacks en route to all-state, all-district and all-league honors.

Rieskamp chose the Wolfpack over offers from Boston College, Michigan State, West Virginia, Miami (Ohio), Cincinnati, Akron, Ohio and Ball State. He originally committed to BC, but is now headed to NC State.

Pack Pride will have more from Rieskamp in the near future so stay tuned!
