Five-star Class of 2020 guard Caleb Love of CBC gave a verbal commitment to the University of North Carolina on Tuesday night.

The 6'3" Love made his official commitment at a press conference in the school's gymnasium in front of a group of family and friends. He is the No. 1 ranked player in the Prep Hoops Missouri Class of 2020 rankings in the state and the No. 32 ranked player nationally. He has gradually increased his national profile throughout his career.

He whittled down his long list of collegiate suitors to North Carolina and Missouri before choosing the Tar Heels, a perennial national power from the Atlantic Coast Conference. Love said he made up his mind that he was going to North Carolina after his official visit to Chapel Hill a couple of weeks ago.

"I felt like it was the best fit for me," Love said. "North Carolina pushes family and after my visit, I just knew that it was the place for me. It felt like home. It is a great atmosphere and the history is amazing."

 As a junior, Love led the Cadets to a 24-8 record and a runner-up finish in the Class 5 state
