UNC Basketball Recruiting offers five-star Caleb Wilson
The Class of 2023 recruits haven’t even stepped foot on campus yet, but the UNC basketball recruiting team is already looking to the Class of 2025.
Caleb Wilson, a six-foot-eight power forward from Atlanta, Georgia became the fourth player in the Class of 2025 to receive a scholarship offer from the UNC basketball program on Thursday. Wilson, a five-star recruit, announced the news via his personal Twitter account:

247Sports currently ranks Wilson as the No. 9 overall player in the country and the No. 5 overall power forward. According to his profile on 247Sports, Wilson has also received scholarship offers from Alabama, Cincinnati, Cleveland State, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Indiana, Missouri, SMU, and Xavier.
The roster outlook for the 2025-2026 basketball season is almost impossible to predict with the current state of college basketball between the transfer portal, reclassifications, and the one-and-done. However, based on current scholarships and future commitments, the UNC basketball roster has three big men on the 2025-2026 roster featuring, Jalen Washington (four-star recruit in the Class of 2022), who will be a senior, Zayden High (four-star recruit in the Class of 2023), who will be a junior, and James Brown (four-star recruit in the Class of 2024), who will be a sophomore.
While there is no possible way any of us (fans or coaches) could predict what the roster might look like in two years, it’s never too early to be recruiting, especially for a player like Wilson who is getting better and improving constantly. Jamie Shaw with On3Sports recently pointed out just how much Wilson has developed over the past few months:
The most impressive development Caleb Wilson in the past 8 mos. is his ability to create space within 2/3 dribbles in the half court.
As a 6-9 athletic 16 y.o. his ability to generate shots at multiple levels is really intriguing.@CalebWilson2025 pic.twitter.com/pkzkwe03jj https://t.co/eeaWtjwrQV

Wilson becomes the second power forward to pick up an offer from the UNC basketball program joining Koa Peat, the No. 3 ranked player in the country and No. 3 power forward. The other two players in the Class of 2025 who received offers from Hubert Davis are five-star shooting guards, Isiah Hartwell, and Darryn Peterson.
