Five-star guard Caleb Love revealed his top six schools a few weeks ago, and Saturday it was reported which five he will take an official visit to.

The Arizona Wildcats are the odd ones out.

Love will officially visit Missouri on Sept. 7, Indiana on Sept. 12, North Carolina on Sept. 20, Louisville on Sept. 27, and Kansas on Oct. 12, sources told Corey Evans of Rivals.com.

While the UA will not receive an official visit from Love, Evans noted that it is planning to host Love in an unofficial capacity at some point. No Crystal Ball predictions have been submitted for Love, so no one seems to have a good beat on his recruitment.

Still, it does not seem promising for Arizona that the St. Louis native chose to use an official visit to check out nearby Missouri (or even Kansas or Louisville for that matter) instead using it to cover the expenses required to travel to Tucson.

Love is the No. 24 player in the 2020 class and No. 4 point guard, 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.”
