Proctor is ranked No. 12 overall and is the No. 2 offensive tackle in the Class of 2023 in the 247Sports Composite.
Xavier Nwankpa, Proctor’s teammate at Southeast Polk High School in Pleasant Hill, Iowa, was a top-60 national prospect in the Class of 2022 who signed with Iowa over Ohio State and Notre Dame.
