Georeferencing CAD data in ArcGIS Pro

I am given a CAD .dwg file to georeference using an orthophotograph as the reference layer. I followed the ERSI video on georeferencing CAD using ArcGIS Pro. I am using ArcGIS Pro 2.4. When I execute the Georeferencing using the ESRI Basemap as the reference layer, the polylines (CAD data) line up fine.

But when I used the orthophotograph (which is the same projection as the map NAD 83 State Plane NC FIPS 3200 feet), it didn't work. When I click the "Move to Display", the polylines moved further away from the orthophoto until it reached the ocean. This didn't happen in ArcMap 10.6.

I'm curious why this happens to ArcGIS Pro.
