With the deadline to stay in the NBA draft or return to college now passed, the focus now shifts fully to the transfer portal for college programs and that includes North Carolina.

After missing out on Matthew Mayer, the Tar Heels are hoping to add a player out of the portal with one spot open on their roster. And their biggest target could be Northwestern forward Pete Nance.

According to Riley Davis of The Field of 68, the Tar Heels are in pursuit of Nance after he announced he was withdrawing from the NBA draft process and returning to college.

As a senior, Nance averaged 14.6 points, 6.5 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game while shooting 49.7 percent from the field. Nance has started in 74 of 107 appearances during his Northwestern career.

This is the only report connecting UNC and Nance so far but he does make sense for them to pursue especially at the forward spot.
