Tar Heels 2025 players to target


UNC basketball is in the mix to potentially land several high-profile prospects in the 2025 recruiting class.

Head coach Hubert Davis and the Tar Heels welcome a top-10 class to Chapel Hill this summer, including Ian Jackson and Drake Powell.

As it stands now in mid-May, no players in the class of 2025 have committed to UNC, but there is a long list of interested high school standouts who could commit to join the 2025 roster -2026.

Here’s a look at some of UNC’s top goals for the 2025 class.

Koa peat

Peat, a 6-foot-1 power forward from Arizona, is the No. 5 ranked player nationally in the 247Sports Composite. The five-star recruit attended UNC in November 2023. In March, Peat was named Gatorade Arizona high school boys basketball player of the year for the second straight season. He averaged 20.5 points, 10.6 rebounds and 2.2 blocks per game last season at Perry.

Darryn Peterson

Peterson is a 6-foot-1 guard from Ohio and the No. 3 player nationally in the 247Sports Composite. The top-ranked shooting guard averaged 31 points, 9.8 rebounds and 2.8 steals at Ohio before transferring to Huntington Prep in West Virginia.

Caleb Wilson

Wilson, a 6-foot-1 power forward from Georgia, is the No. 4 player in the class of 2025, according to the 247Sports Composite. He attended UNC in February and averaged 20.8 points and 14.6 rebounds per game at the Holy Innocents Episcopal School in Atlanta.

Isaiah Harwell

Gonzaga is considered the favorite to land Harwell, but the 6-foot-1 wing attended UNC. Harwell, the No. 8 ranked recruit nationally by the 247Sports Composite, averaged 14.9 points and 4.7 rebounds over 10 games at Wasatch Academy in Utah.

Jackson Keith

Keith has not received an offer from the Tar Heels, but the interest is there for the South Durham standout. The 6-foot-1 wing is the No. 2 player in North Carolina and averaged 20.6 points last season, along with 7.6 rebounds per game.
