Sure it's normal. Men get random erections all the time, especially in adolescence and sometimes early twenties. Don't worry about it. In fact, my boyfriend gets them at the worst times sometimes. During a meeting once. Just a bloke thing.

having an erection doesn't necessarily mean you're aroused. it's totally normal and common to get them while sleeping or sitting in class - for absolutely no reason. If you just don't think about it, it'll go away on it's own. All guys deal with this.
