My friend just opened up to me about having feelings for me for quite some time. And I honestly had no clue.
Thing is we got such a great friendship and I don't see him that way, and I'm curious how would you normally handle this situation if you have been in it before?
I think he's aware I don't feel the same way but just wanted to tell me since he's been keeping it in for so long. So do I just continue on acting like nothing was ever said?

If you really don't have feelings for him and don't want a romantic relationship, you need to tell him that. But make sure you are 100% clear, or else he might think there is still a chance. If you did flirt or make a relationship seem possible, you should apologize and say you didn't realize you were leading him on.
After that, it is up to him. He may be angry/upset and never speak to you again, so be prepared for that. But he may realize he'd rather you in his life as just a friend, rather than not at all, and may continue to talk to you as a just a friend.
It's probably going to be pretty awkward, but I wish you the best of luck!0
