5-star guard Caleb Love lists Arizona as a finalist

Basketball: USA Men’s Junior National Team Minicamp Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

Five-star point guard Caleb Love listed the Arizona Wildcats as one of six finalists in an interview with The other schools in the mix are Kansas, Indiana, Missouri, Louisville and North Carolina.

“They want for me to come in and play with another guard,” Love told Rivals of UA. “Dalen Terry just committed there so it could be him, or Adam Miller, he has them in his top ten, so I could play with one of them. With them, they want for me to play on and off of the ball and to show off my versatility and lead the team to a national championship.”

A 6-foot-3 point guard from St. Louis, Love is the No. 25 player in the 2020 class and No. 4 at his position, per 247Sports composite rankings.

“At nearly 6-foot-3 with pretty good length, Love can play either guard spot and shows significant potential on the defensive end,” reads his 247sports scouting report. “A score-first point guard, he has the ability to put his team on his back as a bucket getter, or to be a facilitator. Right now, he is more comfortable taking shots than setting up teammates, but his passing has improved and he is doing a better job of running a team. Ultimately, it comes down to Love’s ability to run a team at the college level and beyond, but there is no doubt he can score. The requisite athleticism is absolutely there.”
