Northwestern forward and top remaining player in the transfer portal Pete Nance will play at North Carolina next season, he announced on Saturday.

The son of former NBA All-Star Larry Nance and brother of New Orleans Pelicans forward Larry Nance Jr., the younger Nance improved in each of his four seasons with the Wildcats, becoming a knockdown shooter and feared defender.

His senior campaign was the best of his college career, averaging 14.6 points and 6.5 rebounds per game while making 45% of his 3-pointers.

Following the season, Nance went through the draft process before eventually deciding to remain in college as a graduate transfer.

Nance will use his fifth year of eligibility to suit up for a potential national championship contender in the Tar Heels.

After head coach Hubert Davis and Co. made an unlikely surge to the title game last season as a No. 8 seed, four of their five starters opted to return to Chapel Hill. Only sharpshooting forward Brady Manek departed, and Nance is primed to fill his role.
