North Carolina picked up its first defensive line commitment on Tuesday when 2015 prospect Aaron Crawford selected the Tar Heels. The 6-2, 285-pound defensive tackle made the announcement via his Twitter account:
At this point in time I’d like to announce my commitment to UNC!

A Virginia native, Crawford is the fifth out-of-state recruit and ninth prospect overall to join UNC’s 2015 class. With Ethan Farmer, Shawn Underwood and Devonte Brown completing their senior seasons this fall, Crawford could have the opportunity to see the field early in his career.
