Basketball players tend to be some of the best athletes around, as this two-sport star is drawing the attention of Courtney Banghart and the UNC women's basketball program.

As she announced on social media, Class of 2025 standout Lauren Hurst has received an offer from North Carolina. The 6-foot-2 junior is a four-star prospect whom ESPN HoopGurlz Recruiting ranks as the No. 47 overall player in her graduating class.

Hurst is an outstanding two-sport athlete as she also dominates on the volleyball court as well. This fall, Hurst was named the Tennessee Volleyball Player of the Year by Gatorade, as she's made a name for herself in both sports that she actively competes in.

However, looking at her social media account, it appears that basketball may be in her future plans.

Hurst has multiple Division I offers, including Virginia Tech, Indiana, NC State, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, and Marquette. Based on how her recruitment has gone, it wouldn't be a surprise to see more top-tier programs jump into the mix before its all said and done.

With Lanie Grant, the No. 22 overall player in the Class of 2025, already committed to the Tar Heels, adding Hurst would be yet another huge addition to the future of the UNC women's basketball program. Based on the Tar Heels' recent recruiting success, you could expect that they'll continue to try and put on the full-court press in order to land another top-tier talent.
