Twitter reacts to Caleb Love entering the transfer portal
Another one bites the dust: Caleb Love announced his decision to leave UNC and enter the NCAA transfer portal.
News dropped last week that Puff Johnson was joining Justin McKoy, Dontrez Styles and Tyler Nickel. Since then, redshirt freshman Will Shaver has put his name in the portal. Meanwhile, Armando Bacot and RJ Davis announced their return to UNC.
Bacot and Davis’s decision to return was huge. However, many wondered if Love would join the guys he appeared in the national championship a year ago. Unfortunately, that did not occur.
Love took to social media, thanking UNC and announcing he would enter the transfer portal.
with love, the journey continues…🙏🏽 pic.twitter.com/hnVddUAbo3

Let us look at how Twitter reacted to Love entering the transfer portal.

When on, Caleb Love was one of the most dynamic and clutch guards in #UNC history. He made his biggest plays in the biggest moments.
His legacy at Carolina is secured, but Love will always elicit mixed feelings from the fan base. pic.twitter.com/bC4jVyJwp7

North Carolina guard Caleb Love announces he will transfer. I’m told it was a mutual parting of ways with the Tar Heels.

Caleb Love is going to go somewhere with a staff willing to have the tough conversations with him and he's going to be a star.

UNC now has as many players in the transfer portal as 4-28 Louisville (6), which doesn't seem like the most comfortable place to be.

I’ll miss Caleb Love, wish him nothing but the best but goddamn I will not kiss the shot selection in some possessions. Good luck Caleb fr thank you for that crazy March run

Caleb Love endured a coaching change, heavy roster turnover, & a COVID season— all halfway across the country from home.
He also led UNC to 2 of the biggest wins and one of the most exciting UNC March runs in program history.
I’m forever thankful for his years in Chapel Hill.

Unfortunate it didn’t quite work out for Caleb Love at #UNC, despite his heroics during last year’s run, which shouldn’t be forgotten.
Consistency was always his No. 1 issue.
We called it the “Caleb Love Experience” for a reason. You just never knew what you were gonna get.

Caleb Love was an absolute roller coaster over the past three seasons.
Still, after all the misses fade from memory, his rivalry-altering buckets will endure. His #UNC legacy is secure.
Going to be crushing to see him in another jersey next season.
