Nyheim Hines is headed to the NFL.

The running back class in the 2018 NFL Draft is stacked. Saquon Barkley, Karryon Johnson, Nick Chubb, and more will be vying to become the first running back off the board in April.

Now another has joined their ranks.

NC State running back Nyheim Hines has declared for the draft. Hines posted the following message for Wolfpack fans.

"I would like to thank the coaches for believing in me and giving me the opportunity to play at my dream school. I appreciate everybody at NC State who has helped me along the way. Last, but not least, I want to thank Wolfpack Nation for always supporting me - even in high school - to help make my dream come true. NC State will always be a part of me wherever I am in life, and I will always be drawn back here."

Hines racked up over 1,100 rushing yards this season, while compiling 143.7 all-purpose yards per game to lead the ACC.
