There’s more good news on the recruiting front for North Carolina, according to Evan Daniels of 247 Sports. One of the top point guards in the 2020 class — 5-star Caleb Love — has narrowed his list of schools down to just two: UNC and Missouri.
Love was set to take an official visit to Louisville this weekend; that, however, is no longer the case. The same can be said for Kansas, too, which is dealing with even larger NCAA problems. Last weekend, Love was in Chapel Hill on an official visit — the same weekend as 5-star center Walker Kessler. To the surprise of some, Kessler committed to North Carolina on Sunday — over Duke.

Love, who plays his prep basketball for St. Louis (Mo.) Christian Brothers College, is rated by 247 Sports as the No. 4 point guard in the 2020 class. He visited nearby Missouri for an official visit back on Sept. 6.
North Carolina already has 2020 commitments from two 5-star centers: Kessler and Day’Ron Sharpe. The addition of Love would, hypothetically, give UNC three 5-star commits. Duke, of course, already has three 5-star commits: Jalen Johnson, Jeremy Roach and DJ Steward.
With Cole Anthony set for a monster one-and-done season in Chapel Hill, Love looks like the heir to North Carolina’s point guard throne. Currently, UNC is seen as the team to beat for Love.
