North Carolina State picked up its second commitment of the 2013 class when running back Dakwa Nichols (Rockingham, N.C./Richmond Senior) called his recruiter, Jim Bridge and made his pledge to become a member of the Wolfpack program.
All-purpose back Dakwa Nichols committed to N.C. State on Tuesday over an offer from Air Force
Nichols visited campus for the spring game on April 21, which is the same time he picked up his offer. He knew right away that he could see him self as a member of the Wolf pack program.
“It’s close to home, they have great academics, and have a great football program,” Nichols said. “I have a great relationship with the coaches.”
Nichols has a very good relationship with Bridge, his recruiter, and spoke very highly of the N.C. State offensive line coach. The 5-foot-10, 185-pound tailback called Bridge earlier in the evening and didn’t reach him.
When Nichols got Bridge on the phone, the news that he delivered made his future coach extremely happy.
“He was excited. He said they’re really excited to have me and they can’t wait to have me be a part of the Wolfpack program.”
Nichols had an offer from Air Force. He said that Duke, Wake Forest, and East Carolina have all shown a lot of interest and were close to offering.
“Coach Bridge said that they can use me as a running back,” Nichols said. “He just told me to come in and work hard.”
Nichols said that even though other offers may come, he’s solid with his verbal commitment to N.C. State. His first priority is recruiting teammate and four-star offensive lineman Tyrone Crowder.
“I’m completely done“,” Nichols said. “No more recruiting. I’m going to recruit for N.C. State. I hope to get my teammate Tyrone Crowder to come and join me.”
