RECRUITING SERVICE ASSESSMENTS
“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.”
