Nevada received an official commitment for their 2016 recruiting class as defensive tackle Nick Gregg is now a member of the Wolf Pack football team.

Gregg, who was the first player to commit to the Wolf Pack's 2016 class, is a 6-2 285 lbs three-star prospect who played his high school football at Reed High School in Sparks, Nevada. Gregg received offers from Arizona State, San Diego State, Fresno State, Northern Arizona and Army before verbally committing to Nevada last year. As a junior, Gregg was named the Norther Nevada Defensive Player of the Year when he recorded 90 tackles, seven sacks and one fumble recovery.  In his senior year, Gregg recorded 62 tackles, eight sacks and one interception. Here is a clip of his senior year highlights.

An under the radar recruit at the defensive tackle position, Gregg does a good job of shedding blocks and getting to the quarterback. He is a powerful tackle who is quick and strong and specializes in stopping the run. Gregg said that "I feel like I'm good at dominating the man across from me and opening up holes for my teammates to shoot through and stop the run". Gregg must get better in developing a few pass rushing moves but his run stopping abilities should be enough for him to get in the defensive line rotation for the Wolf Pack in 2016.
