Caleb Love has had a very unique recruiting process after entering the transfer portal back in late March. The former North Carolina guard talked to numerous schools but quickly decided to transfer to Michigan. After committing to Michigan, Love then de-committed from the Wolverines and according to the school insiders, admissions may have had something to do with it. This was a big loss to Michigan and an unfortunate circumstance for Love.
Ever since Love de-committed from Michigan, his recruiting process has been very quiet. Many believed that Indiana and Missouri would be the favorites to land the talented guard, however, Love has been very quiet with his recruiting process making it very tough to figure out his top schools. He is the No. 16 overall player in the transfer portal and any team would be thrilled to land him.
After weeks of waiting, reports of potential landing spots for Love were released per Eric Bossi and 247 Sports, here are Love’s top three potential landing spots:
Top Caleb Love Landing Spots
Texas has been in on Love since he originally entered the portal, but the Longhorns had no serious traction until now. They have already added the number nine overall transfer, Max Abmas from Oral Roberts. The Longhorns also announce that starting guard Tyrese Hunter will return to Austin for the 2023 season. If Texas was able to bring in Love, the Longhorns would have one of the best backcourts in the country.
The Zags are notorious for having great guards over the years and they are hoping to add another top guard in Love. Gonzaga recently picked up a commitment from the No. 10 overall transfer, and one of the best point guards in college basketball, Ryan Nembhard from Creighton. Gonzaga has been on fire this offseason and they have put together a really solid roster via the transfer portal. The Bulldogs have brought in numerous transfer guards over the years and turned them into superstars, will Love be the next?
Arizona has lost some production at the guard spot and Love would be a great late addition to this roster. The Wildcats already added transfer guard Jaden Bradley from Alabama. Arizona was a late team to show interest in Love, but Love seems to really like the program and things could pick up rather quickly with his recruitment.
In my opinion, the best fit for Love is easily Arizona. Starting point guard Kerr Kriisa transferred to West Virginia and they lost starting guard Courtney Ramey to the NBA draft. Point guard Kylan Boswell, who had a great freshman year, is ready to take control at the point for this team in 2023, but the Wildcats still need another ball-dominant guard like Love. With talented guards like Boswell and Bradley already on the roster, Arizona is looking to have one of the deepest backcourts in the country with the addition of the former North Carolina product. With that being said, I believe Caleb Love will be on the Wildcat roster in 2023.
