One of the most significant offseason decisions made by Juwan Howard following the conclusion of the Wolverines’ 2022-23 campaign was the acquisition of Michigan basketball transfer addition Caleb Love, a former five-star UNC Tar Heel. However, recent news indicates that Love will not be joining the University of Michigan, despite his reaffirmed commitment just a few weeks ago.

Today, news broke that Caleb Love has decided to enroll elsewhere following around a month of commitment to Juwan Howard’s program. In college recruiting, especially with the portal, nothing is official until ink hits paper, and this further proves that. Love was poised to be one of the top players for the Wolverines next season, though it appears that he as opted to head elsewhere for the 2023-24 season.

Caleb Love, a former five-star point guard recruit from North Carolina, has three years of experience from his time at UNC, where he showcased his skills and abilities. In the previous season (2022-23), Love averaged an impressive 16.7 points per game, 2.8 assists per game, and 3.7 rebounds per game. His arrival fills a crucial need for experience and scoring on the upcoming 2023-24 Michigan basketball roster, making him a significant acquisition for Juwan Howard and the team.

This unexpected transfer portal loss is a huge blow to the Michigan basketball program ahead of a crucial fourth season for Juwan Howard. After a pitiful season in 2022-23, the Wolverines are going to need to find more guard depth and bring in some talent late in the transfer portal cycle in hopes of replacing the talent that Caleb Love was bound to bring.
