The UNC basketball program is in the middle of a big recruiting week and that revolves around one of the top transfers that entered the portal this offseason.
Senior college basketball analyst for CBS Sports Matt Norlander gave his take on the Nance situation, saying he’s been told ‘it’s likely/expected’ that Nance will end up a Tar Heel.
The best remaining transfer on the board is Northwestern transfer Pete Nance, who is still on his UNC visit right now. I’m hearing it’s likely/expected at this point he’ll be a Tar Heel. Would be another huge piece added to an already-loaded 2023 national title contender.

North Carolina has been trying to fill the void left by Brady Manek at the 4 position this offseason. It went after Baylor transfer Matthew Mayer before he landed at Illinois. The only other option that UNC was tied to was Nance.
Nance averaged 14.5 points, 6.5 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game last season. He shot 49.7 percent from the field and 45.2 percent from three on 3.1 attempts per game. For his career, he is a 35.6 percent shooter from three.
Nance had put his name in the NBA Draft and went through the draft process before withdrawing before the deadline.
He has one year of eligibility left due to the covid year of eligibility.
