Caleb Love, a skilled point guard from the University of North Carolina, has committed to playing basketball for the University of Michigan. The announcement was made on Monday, May 10th, via social media.
Love is the first commitment for Juwan Howard’s 2022 recruiting class, and he brings with him a wealth of experience and talent. During the 2022-23 basketball season, he led the Tar Heels in scoring and assists, averaging 15.9 points and 3.6 assists per game. His three-point shot was also a valuable weapon, as he shot 34.3% from beyond the arc.
The 6-foot-3, 195-pound point guard is considered one of the top recruits in the country for the 2022 class. He is a skilled ball-handler and passer, with an ability to penetrate the defense and create scoring opportunities for himself and his teammates. His quickness and athleticism make him a tough defender, as well.
Love was heavily recruited by top programs across the country, including Duke, Kansas, and North Carolina. But he ultimately decided to commit to Michigan, citing the opportunity to play under Coach Howard and experience the program’s winning culture as important factors in his decision.
Michigan is coming off a successful 2020-21 season, where they compiled a 23-5 record and advanced to the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament. With the addition of Love, the Wolverines will be looking to continue their winning ways and compete for a national championship in the upcoming season.
The addition of Caleb Love to the Michigan basketball program is an exciting opportunity for both the player and the team. Love’s talent and experience will be valuable assets to the Wolverines, and his presence on the court is sure to make an impact in the upcoming season. It will be interesting to see how Love develops under Coach Howard’s guidance and how his skills can elevate the Michigan basketball team in the years to come.
