Class of 2020 IU Basketball Recruit Profile Pages: Caleb Love

(Update: Love has scheduled an official visit to Indiana on September 12)

With summer AAU and live period action largely now complete, we are entering list cutting and commitment season for college basketball recruiting.

To help you stay abreast of all of the latest news for Indiana’s top 2020 recruiting targets, you can refer back to these recruit profile pages from our recruiting drop down menu.

At the bottom of each profile page is all recent coverage of the individual player, including both original reporting by The Daily Hoosier and linked articles in The Daily Hoosier Report.


Status —  OFFERED (July 2018)

Hometown – St. Louis, Missouri (Christian Brothers College)
Position – Point Guard / Combo Guard
Height – 6-foot-3
Weight – 175
247 Sports Composite Rating – 5-star (No. 25)

Timeline — Indiana is in the final six for Love and based on a recent report by Rivals, Love intends to take visits to all six schools prior to making his decision. An official visit to Indiana is scheduled for September 12. Look for a commitment by the November early signing period.

Indiana Connections — Archie Miller and staff have been making Love a priority recruit for more than a year.  Love has been to IU for multiple unofficial visits and the IU staff has been in-home in St. Louis.

Numbers — Love averaged 15.8 points on 40.1 percent shooting overall including 29.5 percent from three point range during Nike EYBL spring and summer AAU play.  He added 5 assists, 4.5 rebounds, 3.5 turnovers and 1.9 steals per game.

Love averaged 19.4 points, 4.3 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game his junior season for Christian Brothers.


“At nearly 6-foot-3 with pretty good length, Love can play either guard spot and shows significant potential on the defensive end. 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.”

— Brian Snow, 247Sports

“Love has made great progressions with his playmaking and shooting. A high-level athlete that is one of the best defenders nationally, Love is someone that can play either guard position, has his game headed in the proper direction and is rightfully receiving priority attention from each of his six finalists.”

— Corey Evans, Rivals


“They (Indiana) want for me to come in and turn that program around. They have been in a drought lately so they want for me to come in and lead their team to a championship and they said that they would put the ball in my hands. Only thing with them, they are going to try and get pieces around me and we will go from there.”


“”They love me a lot. Me and coach (Archie) Miller always talk and we are always going over my game. They are always trying to help me get better. We talk a lot.”
