Rivals150 have updated their new 2020 basketball recruiting rankings, and one of Missouri’s biggest targets has made a huge climb. Point guard Caleb Love has moved up 12 spots to No. 20 in these latest rankings, and is now officially listed as a five-star recruit. Other Missouri targets in these rankings include five-star shooting guard Joshua Christopher at No. 11, four-star center Ryan Kalkbrenner at No. 67, and three-star center Davion Bradford at No. 131.
Despite missing out on Cam’Ron Fletcher to Kentucky, Cuonzo Martin and Missouri have an opportunity to make up some ground, but obviously it won’t be an easy task to achieve. Even if the Tigers miss out on all three of Fletcher, Christopher and Love— which would certainly sting – Kalkbrenner and Bradford seem to be viable options at a position of need.
Caleb Love will be making his official visit to Columbia this weekend – the first of his five official visits.
Official Visits: Mizzou - September 7-8— Caleb Love (@caleb2love) August 17, 2019
Indiana ⚪️ - September 12 - 15
North Carolina - September 20-22
Louisville - September 27 - 29
Kansas - October 12 - 13
Saturday is critical for the football team, and could be for the future for the basketball program as well. A good atmosphere against West Virginia wouldn’t exactly hurt the Tigers’ chances of landing Love. Missouri needs to make a good lasting impression here to compete with the other contending blue bloods, and they have the opportunity to do so. And Martin is doing his part:
