Per Jake Weingarten of Stock Risers, Cavalier head coach Tony Bennett was at CBC on Tuesday to evaluate the standout point guard, who is rated among the top 40 juniors in the nation by ESPN, 247Sports and Rivals.com. Division 1 men’s basketball recruiting is currently in a “Recruiting Period,” during which college coaches can visit high schools to evaluate prospects.
In addition to Virginia, the 6’3”, 180-pound junior also boasts offers from Butler, Creighton, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas State, Louisville, Missouri, Purdue, Texas and Texas A&M, among others. Love, a 2018 MCC First-Team All-Conference pick, is a consensus 4-star recruit who participates in the 2018 Nike Elite 100 Camp and has been invited to the USA Junior National Team Minicamp. ESPN ranks him as the No. 33 junior in the nation, while 247Sports currently has him at No. 34 overall in the class of 2020. Rivals.com ranks Love as the No. 40 high school junior in the country.
The Kansas City Star has an informative piece on Love, who reported Virginia as one of the schools he heard from early on once college coaches were allowed to call class of 2020 recruits.
According to our calculations, Virginia has now offered four point guards in the class of 2020. Click here to view our Scholarship Picture Page, which includes the latest numbers and reported scholarship offers.
