The UNC basketball recruiting team continues its efforts on the Class of 2025, as another five-star prospect has been extended an offer.

Hubert Davis and the UNC basketball recruiting team are starting to put more focus on the Class of 2025.

First, it was five-star Isiah Harwell picked up an offer from the Tar Heels. Over the weekend, fellow five-star Darryn Peterson joined the club, and just a day later, a third five-star received an official offer from North Carolina.

On his personal social media accounts, Arizona native Koa Peat announced that he picked up an offer from the Tar Heels. Peat, a 6-foot-8 power forward, is currently ranked by 247Sports Composite as the No. 3 overall player in his graduating class as well as the top player coming out of his home state.

Peat has been reeling in the offers as of late, as six offers have come in since April 15. While currently holding 24 scholarship offers, it is likely that this number will continue to rise over the next couple of months.

Here’s what 247Sports Recruiting Analyst Brandon Jenkins had to say about Peat’s game:

"Peat can affect the game in many ways at such a young age. With elite size for a perimeter prospect, Peat projects and excels as a multi-positional player and defender. He is most effective while being utilized as a point forward-type wing or a playmaking four-man in situational small-ball lineups. Peat embodies the full use of the term versatility as he can create for those around him just as well as he does himself. He has the excellent ball skills to run an offense and the vision to see over a defense to find the open man. His size and passing prowess draws comparisons to potential 2021 NBA top draft pick Cade Cunningham. Peat additionally demonstrates a reliable perimeter game that will only get better with time and continued work. He gets great lift on his jumper and has a great feel for when to score and when to distribute. He also checks boxes in his approach to hitting the glass as he is a quality rebounder on both ends of the floor. His intangibles are just as valuable as his versatility as he already possesses the attitude and work ethic to be a major asset at a high major program."

It’s early in the process still for this class, but it’s not a surprise to see college coaches already starting to extend offers to some of the top available talents. Expect to see plenty of more Class of 2025 recruiting action over the next few months.
