North Carolina added its first wide receiver commit for the 2014 class today, when Charlotte (NC) Providence wide receiver Austin Proehl committed to the Tar Heels.
The 5-10, 165-pound prospect chose UNC over offers from Wake Forest and Virginia Tech. The offer from the Tar Heels came earlier today and the talented pass catcher jumped on it, when he committed to head coach Larry Fedora and wide receivers coach Gunter Brewer this evening.
Austin Proehl is the son of wide receiver Ricky Proehl, who was a wide receiver in the National Football League for 17 years (1990-2006) with the Phoenix/Arizona Cardinals, Seattle Seahawks, Chicago Bears, St. Louis Rams, Carolina Panthers and Indianapolis Colts.
Proehl, who played college football at Wake Forest, was selected by the Cardinals in the third round (58th pick) in the 1990 NFL Draft. He has been an assistant coach with the Panthers the last two years, and has been promoted to wide receivers coach by the Panthers this season.
