Louisville makes the cut for top PG recruit Caleb Love

The Cards face some stiff competition for the 5-star floor general.

Louisville’s primary focus when it comes to the recruiting class of 2020 is pretty clearly at the point guard position. The floor general Chris Mack and company have had their eyes the most squarely on during this cycle has been 5-star guard Caleb Love out of Saint Louis.

On Tuesday, Love trimmed his list of potential college destinations to six. Along with Kansas, North Carolina, Arizona, Indiana and Missouri, U of L made the cut.

Love spoke with Corey Evans of Rivals about each of the schools remaining on his list. Here’s what he had to say about Louisville:

Louisville: “They have just said that they want to put the ball in my hands immediately and they don’t have a real point guard right now, I think that they have a grad-transfer (Lamarr Kimble), he is going to be a senior, so they want for me to come in and be that lead point guard and lead them to a national championship and they said they are going to help me get to be a one-and-done so that is what I am intrigued about.”

Love has already taken an unofficial visit to U of L, and could be back in the Derby City in an official capacity at the start of fall.

“I am trying to go to North Carolina but there is nothing set yet,” Love told Evans. “I might go to Louisville for Louisville Live on the 27th (September), but the only thing is, that is my birthday, but I might go there, too. We would go from there.”

Here’s a quick look at why some believe Love could be a one and done player:

It is so fun to be back in the race(s) for this type of talent again.
