With the start of another school year right around the corner, things are beginning to heat up in the 2020 college basketball recruiting class.

And that usually means official visits, trimmed-down lists and fall commitments are forthcoming.

Caleb Love, a 4-star point guard from St. Louis, recently released official visit dates for five of his six finalists and Kansas made the cut.

Love, who stands 6-foot-3 and weighs 173 pounds, will visit KU the weekend of Oct. 12, according to Rivals recruiting analyst Corey Evans.

The other four schools who will get official visits from the No. 32-ranked player in the Rivals.com rankings for 2020 include: Missouri (Sept. 7), Indiana (Sept. 12), North Carolina (Sept. 20) and Louisville (Sept. 27).

Arizona is the sixth school on Love’s list of finalists, and Evans wrote that the talented point guard is trying to work out a way to make an unofficial visit to Arizona sometime in the next couple of months.

Evans also wrote that Love has made unofficial visits to KU, Indiana, Missouri and Louisville in recent months and speculated that, with all of his official visits coming before November, Love could be on track to commit and sign in the early signing period, which runs Nov. 13 through Nov. 20.

Evans added: “If that is the case, one school will head into the college season with one of the very best talents that the nation has to provide in the backcourt and (Love) is the type that should immediately impact a program for the better upon his enrollment.”

Evans also indicated that Love has become one of the most sought-after players in the 2020 class because of “his toughness and desire to compete at the point of attack.”
