Heel Tough Blog: UNC Offers 5th 2025 Prospect Since Monday


Earlier today, Hubert Davis offered the first player of the 2026 recruiting class, but today, he got back into the 2025 class, one that will be very important for the long-term success of his program, moving forward. Davis and his staff offered four players in the 2025 class yesterday, after the initial start to the AAU season, which will ramp up in a big way over the next month or so.  The latest player from the 2025 class, to earn an offer from UNC, is Nate Ament, a 6-9 power forward, from Virginia. Ament, is the No. 18 overall player according to 247Sports Composite, while being the No. 5 power forward in the class, and the No. 1 player from the state of Virginia. 

Eric Bossi is the National Basketball Director for 247Sports, and here’s how he breaks down Ament’s ability on the basketball court, “Pushing 6-foot-8, Ament is a guy who broke out on the national scene during the spring and summer of 2023 while playing with Team Loaded NC. While he's still a bit on the thin side, Ament is a mobile and skilled forward who has the skill and ball skills to play out on the wing where he has tremendous size. Or, he can be used as a small ball four-man who opens up defenses and pulls other bigs away from the basket thanks to his ability to shoot from deep. There is a lot of projectable upside for Ament because of his overall size, athleticism, and frame that he can easily grow into down the road. While he's not yet a finished product and certainly needs to add more strength, he is a guy who already makes the game look pretty easy and appears to have a very bright future.”

Ament currently holds offers from many ACC schools, including Louisville, Virginia Tech, and Florida State, along with SEC schools in Missouri and Ole Miss, among other high major conference programs.

Ament joins Derek Dixon, Braylon Mullins, Nik Khamenia, and Malachi Moreno to receive UNC offers in the last day or so. Carolina has yet to land a commitment in that class, but that will change in due time. If Hubert Davis hopes to establish his program, as a consistent threat to win the ACC regular season title and compete for NCAA Tournament titles, he’ll need to find another set of core pieces to build around in the years to come. That journey starts and ends at the high school level, where he’ll hope to build off the most recent high school recruiting season, which saw him land multiple five-star prospects, who happen to be McDonald’s All-Americans.
