Wolfpack QB Ryan Finley returning for final college season

RALEIGH, N.C. -- NC State quarterback Ryan Finley says he will return for his final season of eligibility instead of entering the NFL draft.

The school released Finley's statement Saturday, with Finley saying he believes NC State could win an ACC title with several key starters returning on offense.

Finley was a graduate transfer from Boise State and is fifth in school history with 6,577 yards passing in two seasons. The NCAA granted Finley an additional season of eligibility in August 2016 after Finley redshirted at Boise State in 2013 and then played in just three games for the Broncos in 2015 before suffering a season-ending injury.

NC State won nine games last season and returns a 1,000-yard rusher in Nyheim Hines and a 1,000-yard receiver in Kelvin Harmon.
