Photo: P.J. Hairston, Eric Ebron Ready To "Put On" For Greensboro in Pros

Former North Carolina athletes P.J. Hairston and Eric Ebron are two of the best athletes to ever come out of the city of Greensboro, NC. The two have followed similar paths to where they are now: both went to high school in Greensboro before attending UNC and turning themselves into highly regarded prospects in their sport's 2014 Draft. Ebron was drafted 10th overall by the Detroit Lions in May's NFL Draft, while Hairston is a potential first round pick in this month's NBA Draft.

The two have known each other for a while, and both Hairston and Ebron are ready to represent their city as professional athletes, according to a text exchange Hairston put on Instagram.

Not only are both guys talented enough to be successful as pros, but they're both motivated to make it at the next level as natives of Greensboro.
