2020 5-star point guard Caleb Love is one of the best players in his class. And on Tuesday evening at 8:00 p.m. ET, he'll be making his college decision.

Love, out of Saint Louis (Mo.) Christian Brothers College, is considering just two schools for his decision — North Carolina and Missouri. The Tar Heels are expected to land the elite prospect. But will the Tigers swoop in and keep Love in-state?

Love is the 21st best overall prospect in his class per 247Sports. He also ranks as the fourth best point guard available.

From ESPN's Jeff Borzello:

North Carolina currently has the 10th best class in the country for the 2020 cycle. Walker Kessler and Day'Ron Sharpe — both five-star centers — are currently the Tar Heels' only commits. Both players are at least 6-foot-10. They certainly have elite length in the 2020 class, but adding a player like Love is exactly what they need.

Missouri on the other hand doesn't typically sign players as elite as Love. The Tigers don't have a commitment for the 2020 class yet. In 2019, Missouri signed the 40th best class in the nation.

The five-star guard previously considered other top programs like Indiana and Kansas, but they have been eliminated and he is expected to choose between UNC and Mizzou next week.

Caleb Love is known for his ability to score with ease due to his quick burst and athleticism. He has good length for his position which allows him to be more than capable in isolation defense.

Which school will Love commit to on Tuesday?
